Django template tags to compile SCSS into CSS

THIS PACKAGE IS NOT MAINTAINED.

Please use django-static-precompiler

Django SCSS

Django SCSS provides template tags to compile SCSS into CSS from templates. It works with both inline code and extenal files.

Installation

  1. Add "django_scss" to INSTALLED_APPS setting.
  2. Make sure that you have sass executable installed. See SASS official site for details.
  3. Optionally, you can specify the full path to sass executable with SCSS_EXECUTABLE setting. By default it's set to sass.
  4. In case you use Django’s staticfiles contrib app you have to add django-scss’s file finder to the STATICFILES_FINDERS setting, for example :
STATICFILES_FINDERS = (
    'django.contrib.staticfiles.finders.FileSystemFinder',
    'django.contrib.staticfiles.finders.AppDirectoriesFinder',
    # other finders..
    'django_scss.finders.SCSSFinder',
)

Example Usage

Inline

{% load scss %}

<style>
  {% inlinescss %}
    #header {
      h1 {
        font-size: 26px;
        font-weight: bold;
      }
      p { font-size: 12px;
        a { text-decoration: none;
          &:hover { border-width: 1px }
        }
      }
    }
  {% endinlinescss %}
</style>

renders to

<style>
  #header h1 {
    font-size: 26px;
    font-weight: bold; }
  #header p {
    font-size: 12px; }
    #header p a {
      text-decoration: none; }
      #header p a:hover {
        border-width: 1px; }
</style>

External file

{% load scss %}

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ STATIC_URL}}{% scss "path/to/styles.scss" %}" />

renders to

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/media/SCSS_CACHE/path/to/styles-91ce1f66f583.css" />

Note that by default compiled files are saved into SCSS_CACHE folder under your STATIC_ROOT (or MEDIA_ROOT if you have no STATIC_ROOT in your settings). You can change this folder with SCSS_ROOT and SCSS_OUTPUT_DIR settings.

Note that all relative URLs in your stylesheet are converted to absolute URLs using your STATIC_URL setting.

Settings

SCSS_EXECUTABLE
Path to SASS compiler executable. Default: "sass".
SCSS_ROOT

SCSS_OUTPUT_DIR
Controls the directory inside SCSS_ROOT that compiled files will be written to. Default: "SCSS_CACHE".
