Sass (Sass) Question

Ionic Framework - Sass is not compiling

I have an Ionic V1 app and I did

ionic setup sass
.

I've added the scss in
watchPatterns
in
ionic.config.json
. Gulp detects the file change but doesn't compile the scss into the css. Tried a lot of things.

I did
ionic setup sass
twice. It seems that the sass only compiles into css once I do
ionic setup sass
.

Here's the
gulpfile.js


var gulp = require('gulp');
var gutil = require('gulp-util');
var bower = require('bower');
var concat = require('gulp-concat');
var sass = require('gulp-sass');
var minifyCss = require('gulp-minify-css');
var rename = require('gulp-rename');
var sh = require('shelljs');

var paths = {
sass: ['./scss/**/*.scss']
};

gulp.task('default', ['sass']);

gulp.task('sass', function(done) {
gulp.src('./scss/ionic.app.scss')
.pipe(sass())
.on('error', sass.logError)
.pipe(gulp.dest('./www/css/'))
.pipe(minifyCss({
keepSpecialComments: 0
}))
.pipe(rename({ extname: '.min.css' }))
.pipe(gulp.dest('./www/css/'))
.on('end', done);
});

gulp.task('watch', function() {
gulp.watch(paths.sass, ['sass']);
});

gulp.task('install', ['git-check'], function() {
return bower.commands.install()
.on('log', function(data) {
gutil.log('bower', gutil.colors.cyan(data.id), data.message);
});
});

gulp.task('git-check', function(done) {
if (!sh.which('git')) {
console.log(
' ' + gutil.colors.red('Git is not installed.'),
'\n Git, the version control system, is required to download Ionic.',
'\n Download git here:', gutil.colors.cyan('http://git-scm.com/downloads') + '.',
'\n Once git is installed, run \'' + gutil.colors.cyan('gulp install') + '\' again.'
);
process.exit(1);
}
done();
});

Answer

Check TomiL's answer, it might be able to help you. If not, try running two cmd's, first type ionic serve, and in the other one type gulp default, or whatever your task name is. here's my gulpfile

var gulp = require('gulp');
var gutil = require('gulp-util');
var bower = require('bower');
var concat = require('gulp-concat');
var sass = require('gulp-sass');
var minifyCss = require('gulp-minify-css');
var rename = require('gulp-rename');
var sh = require('shelljs');

var paths = {
  sass: ['./scss/*.scss']
};

gulp.task('default', ['sass']);

gulp.task('sass', function(done) {
  gulp.src('./scss/ionic.app.scss')
    .pipe(sass())
    .on('error', sass.logError)
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./www/css/'))
    .pipe(minifyCss({
      keepSpecialComments: 0
    }))
    .pipe(rename({ extname: '.min.css' }))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./www/css/'))
    .on('end', done);
});

gulp.task('watch', function() {
  gulp.watch(paths.sass, ['sass']);
});

gulp.task('install', ['git-check'], function() {
  return bower.commands.install()
    .on('log', function(data) {
      gutil.log('bower', gutil.colors.cyan(data.id), data.message);
    });
});

gulp.task('git-check', function(done) {
  if (!sh.which('git')) {
    console.log(
      '  ' + gutil.colors.red('Git is not installed.'),
      '\n  Git, the version control system, is required to download Ionic.',
      '\n  Download git here:', gutil.colors.cyan('http://git-scm.com/downloads') + '.',
      '\n  Once git is installed, run \'' + gutil.colors.cyan('gulp install') + '\' again.'
    );
    process.exit(1);
  }
  done();
});
