    Default sass, compass, ruby getting started problems

    sass, compass, ruby getting started problems


    Hi,

    sorry, I know it is a little of topic but I'm sure you guys can help me as it seems to be the way to style ST apps in the future. I tried to learn about SASS, Compass and Ruby today but I failed with installing it. This is what I tried:

    I installed the ruby installer for windows, that wasn't a problem. But after that everywhere I read (here, ruby, sass and compass websites) they tell you just to 'start your terminal' and enter 'gem install haml'. But what is ment with 'your terminal' here? I started the 'command prompt with ruby' and entered 'gem install haml'. But of course this led to errors. Even though I changed the directory to the places where I extracted the 'gems'.

    I know this is very newbie-staff but I searched the regarding websites for hours and there is no 'step-by-step' instruction for beginners like me. So, please, can anybody tell what do I have to do exactly?

    Any help is extremely appreciated!

    The tutorial you found looks like it assumed a unix environment. In windows your 'terminal' would be your command prompt. If gem doesn't work as a command you will need to make sure that this path is in your environment variables

    You will need gem command to install haml. If you dont have rubygems here is tutorial http://allaboutruby.wordpress.com/20...step-tutorial/ .
    terminal is the 'cmd' from 'run'.

    PS. I recommend you to get ubuntu or other linux distro/mac os x for ruby on rails.

    Thanks for your replies but I still don't get it to work. I'm working with windows xp and installed Ruby 1.9.2. When I type 'gem -v' in the cmd it says '1.3.7', so gem is installed too. Then I downloaded SASS from GitHub and unzipped it which results in a directory named 'nex3-haml-584a1f4'. The content of this directory I copied to 'c:\temp'. Back to the cmd I type 'gem install haml' or 'gem install c:\temp\haml' (also tried it with '/' instead '\') and always get the error 'No such file or directory'.

    @aconran: What do you mean with '... this path is in your environment variables'? Which path? How can I check that? How do I put that path to my environment varibales? I'm not used to the cmd and simply don't know what to type in there exactly, sorry.

    What am I doing wrong? Please help me.
