In short, the issue stemmed from a simple request:
Do you know how to configure compass globally? I know about editing config.rb, but it’s annoying to do the same edits with every project.
The good news is that this solution exists. A user can configure their Compass environment to use a preset profile for new projects.
Well, bad news is two-fold.
First, the solution is what I would coin as advanced compass configuration, if not overtly cumbersome. I can’t imagine a novice Sass/Compass user doing this without breaking into a full-blown panic attack.
Secondly, the alternative (hacking Compass’ default installation profile) is a hack-y way of delivering a fine-tuned configuration.
Now, I wonder if it would be possible to generate the solution in a script rather than having to endure either of these solutions. Having something like this available seems like it would really benefit the community.
Anyone else having issues creating ‘installation profiles’ for config.rb in their new compass/Sass projects?
Thanks Fletch for the topic idea.
