sass, compass, ruby getting started problems
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!

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.
