SassC Build Status Gem Version

Use libsass with Ruby!

This gem combines the speed of libsass, the Sass C implementation, with the ease of use of the original Ruby Sass library.

libsass Version



Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'sassc'

And then execute:


Or install it yourself as:

gem install sassc


This library utilizes libsass to allow you to compile SCSS or SASS syntax to CSS. To compile, use a SassC::Engine, e.g.:, style: :compressed).render

Note: If you want to use this library with Rails/Sprockets, check out sassc-rails.

Additionally, you can use SassC::Sass2Scss to convert Sass syntax to Scss syntax.


This gem is maintained by Ryan Boland and awesome contributors.
