Join Ray Villalobos for an in-depth discussion in this video Analyzing installation options, part of Sass Essential Training.
[Voiceover] - Sass was originally written in Ruby,…which is a programming language…that has an advanced, object oriented approach.…So most of the time you're going to need…to have Ruby installed in order to use Sass.…This right here is the official page for the Ruby language.…To find out where to download a version of Ruby,…you can click on this button right here,…and then you want to actually click on…this installation page,…and find the version for your operating system.…You can see that there are a lot…of different options right here.…
Now if you're on a Mac, you're really in luck,…because Ruby comes pre-installed…with many versions of OSX.…So newer Sass modules like Susy…may require that you run a newer version of Ruby,…but we're going to be sticking with plain vanilla Sass…and Ruby so you shouldn't have a problem.…Now there is a project called LibSass…that can make Sass available in many other languages,…like in Node.js.…Now, it has some advantages over regular Ruby,…so for example, it can be faster to process your files…
