Enable Compass For Sass On Vue.js Webpack Template

September 13, 2017

This article assuming you created your project using webpack template.

vue init webpack <PROJECT_NAME>

Make sure you already setup Sass for Vue.js Webpack Template.

npm install sass-loader node-sass --save-dev

Install compass-mixins.

npm install compass-mixins --save-dev

Edit build/util.js to add includePaths to node_modules/compass-mixins/lib for sass and scss.

exports.cssLoaders = function (options) {

  // https://vue-loader.vuejs.org/en/configurations/extract-css.html
  return {
    // EDIT
    sass: generateLoaders('sass', { indentedSyntax: true, includePaths: [path.resolve(__dirname, '../node_modules/compass-mixins/lib')] }),
    scss: generateLoaders('sass', { includePaths: [path.resolve(__dirname, '../node_modules/compass-mixins/lib')] }),

Now you can use Compass in your *.sass files.
