pyramid_scss 0.4

Adds support for SCSS to Pyramid projects


This module provides a convenient bit of glue code around `pyScss <https:"" kronuz="" pyscss="">`_, allowing your Pyramid projects to use stylesheets authored in `SCSS <http:"" docs="" yardoc="" file.scss_for_sass_users.html="">`_.

Install using setuptools, e.g. (within a virtualenv)::

$ pip install pyramid_scss

Or if you prefer to get the latest from Github::

$ git clone git://

The only setting which is necessary is ``asset_path`` which is an asset spec which points to the root folder where your SCSS stylesheets are. An easy way to set that is to add this line to the ``[app:main]`` section of your ``project.ini``::

scss.asset_path = myproject:assets/scss

``asset_path`` can be a newline delimited string of multiple asset paths. Each path will be searched, in order, until the matching stylesheet is found. An unmatched request will raise ``pyramid.httpexceptions.HTTPNotFound``.

``static_path`` is a path to the static assets necessary to construct a stylesheet. Unlike ``asset_path``, this setting only accepts one path. ``static_url_root`` is required if you set ``static_path``, and it serves as a path prefix when generating the URL for a static resource.

``output_path`` is the path where generated assets will be output, such as spritemaps. Also, ``output_url_root`` is a required setting if ``output_path`` is provided, and will be prefix the path component of the URL generated in reference to compiled resources.

There are a couple of other options. ``compress`` controls whether or not the output documents are compressed (all whitespace stripped)::

scss.compress = false

The other option is ``cache``, which will store both the contents of the file and the rendered output in memory::

scss.cache = true

First, use ``config.include`` to initialize the extension::


Second, assuming you are using URL dispatch, add a route to serve css::

config.add_route('css', '/css/{css_path:.*}.css')
config.add_view(route_name='css', view='pyramid_scss.controller.get_scss', renderer='scss', request_method='GET')

*TODO:* Add a traversal example.

In the example above, an SCSS stylesheet located at ``myproject/assets/scss/style.scss`` (using the ``asset_path`` configured in the Configuration section) could be accessed by a URL request to ``http://myproject/css/style.css``. This route would also resolve stylesheets in subdirectories of ``asset_path``.
