Automatically compile SASS into CSS with Compass and Docker

So your designer need this fancy technology called SASS in order to keep sanity in the CSS file maintenance. Cool. You can either buy him a nice editor that doesn’t the auto-compiling, or you can setup a docker container to do so in the development machine.

That’s why I created the Compass “watch” docker container (also available in github).

The workflow is simple: the container watches the SASS sources folder, and when something changes, it compiles and output the files to the CSS folder. You just have to place a proper config file, and ready to go!
