Since some time I switched from Sublime Text, which is an awesome editor,
to Atom. The reason for this is that Atom is Open Source and I do not have to pay
money for it ;) After I combed through the packages I found less-autocompile
which leads me to have a closer look at LESS, and at least at SASS
This was the start for me to develop Atom packages, I want to introduce here! For more information about the
particular package, have a look at the corresponding readme and try it out :)
Because there was no SASS-pendant to less-autocompile, sass-autocompile
(go to Github repository) was my first Atom package.
It is based on the idea of less-autocompile, using a first line comment for compilation and
its parameters, but I extended it more and more. Now there are many options developers can configure in order to
compile their SASS files, beside automatic compilation on save. Have a look at the README
where everything is described in detail.
My second package is atom-minify, I developed because the
popular minifier is not maintained any more and which used an
outdated and buggy CSS minifier cssmin.js. Furthermore I wanted
after saving it. Of course there are shortcuts for minifying opened CSS or JS files!
At the moment you can choose between four CSS compressors (YUI, clean-css, CSSO or Sqwish) and
Stoclin for his node packages node-minify, on which
atom-minify is based. Further options and feature coming soon! Have a look at the roadmap…
