SASS for Python: A straightforward binding of libsass for Python.

This package provides a simple Python extension module sass which is binding Libsass (written in C/C++ by Hampton Catlin and Aaron Leung). It’s very straightforward and there isn’t any headache related Python distribution/deployment. That means you can add just libsass into your’s install_requires list or requirements.txt file. Need no Ruby nor Node.js.

It currently supports CPython 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, and PyPy 1.9+!


It’s available on PyPI, so you can install it using pip (or easy_install):

$ pip install libsass

Every release of libsass-python uses the most recent release of Libsass. If you want bleeding edge features of libsass master, try installing libsass-unstable package instead:

$ pip install libsass-unstable


>>> import sass
>>> print sass.compile(string='a { b { color: blue; } }')
a b {
  color: blue; }


There’s the user guide manual and the full API reference for libsass:

You can build the docs by yourself:

$ cd docs/
$ make html

The built docs will go to docs/_build/html/ directory.


Hong Minhee wrote this Python binding of Libsass.

Hampton Catlin and Aaron Leung wrote Libsass, which is portable C/C++ implementation of SASS.

Hampton Catlin originally designed SASS language and wrote the first reference implementation of it in Ruby.
