Node-SASS Compiler fails - Invalid CSS

I am trying to compile a .sass file using the node-sass module from a nodejs application. However the compile fails with an Invalid CSS Error.

Here is my SCSS:

body {
background: rgb(255, 0, 0);
}


Here is the full error message:

Original Error: { [Error: Invalid CSS after "body {": expected "}", was "{"]
status: 1,
file: 'C:/localhost/NodeJS-Server/private/sass/style.sass',
line: 2,
column: 7,
message: 'Invalid CSS after "body {": expected "}", was "{"',
formatted: 'Error: Invalid CSS after "body {": expected "}", was "{"\n on line 2 of private/sass/style.sass\n>> body { {\n ------^\n' }


I have no idea where this second '{' comes from.

Thanks for helping.

Answer

SCSS files use the .scss extension, not .sass. The two formats have a different syntax.
