CSS Preprocessors keep getting in my way

Hello everyone

 

This age-old problem is still huanting me, so I would like a solution, please. To illustrate it, Dreamweaver, even in its version 21.3, compiles every SASS file whether I turn on Enable Auto Compilation On File Save or not. Changing the CSS Output options has never solved this, and the app just constantly compiles all of the SASS files nagging me to hell.

 

Thanks for reading.

I'm not sure I understand your question, or problem?

 

Is your problem that DW compiles all SASS files, even if they are partials that you import into other files.

if this is the case, do your partials file names use an undescore as first character

@Import 'variables';

and the file is named

_variables.scss

that way the _variables.scss wont be compiled as _variables.css, but will be compiled on the fly, and the result will imported directly in the hosting file, without creating the CSS file.

In site definition settings under CSS Preprocessors

Are you sure the Enable Auto Compilation... box is empty?

Which preprocessor are you using?

Under Servers tab > Advanced >

Is the Automatically Upload Files to Server on Save box empty?

 

Have you tried Restoring DW Preferences?

Thanks for the suggestions. I looked through the settings including the two options that you mentioned and confirmed they had been unticked. I didn't get to reset the preferences because what Lena suggested worked.

otherwise except for partials, compiling files from scss/sass to css , is one of the purposes of this feature, so all SCSS/SASS must be compiled.

 

If that is not, your trouble, I confess I don't understand your problem, could you please, rephrase it ?

Thanks for the tip, renaming the partials with the underscore at the
start of each file name worked!

I just thought that in your case, you could directly change the json package file, in order to group your partials, and thus mutualize them between your various projects
