Jekyll provides built-in support for Sass and CoffeeScript. In order to use them, create a file with the proper extension name (one of .sass, .scss, or .coffee) and start the file with two lines of triple dashes, like this:


// start content
  font-size: 1.2em


Jekyll allows you to customize your Sass conversion in certain ways.

If you are using Sass @import statements, you’ll need to ensure that your sass_dir is set to the base directory that contains your Sass files. You can do that thusly:

    sass_dir: _sass

The Sass converter will default to _sass.

You may also specify the output style with the style option in your _config.yml file:

    style: :compressed

These are passed to Sass, so any output style options Sass supports are valid here, too.
