@TheJaredWilcurt thanks for sharing. I have it translated into my language and opened an issue on GitHub under the ticket number #428.

can I use Autoprefixer in scout?
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
No. it just processes .sass and .scss to .css

When I launch scout I get some errors in the console and the app will not work. I am running V2.18.16.
Has anyone run into this before?

@koreymfirefly
Update: Somehow a null was generated in the scout-settings.json. I removed it and it works now.
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
you figured it out before I could get here. Yeah, those errors are related to a corrupt settings file

Hello. This is my first time using Scout but when I try to launch the app just closes itself. Any idea of what is happening?
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
@ghost~608715566da03739847b0e16 I don't know, it's a pretty popular app, meaning others aren't having that issue. My assumption is it is something with your environment
you can check Task Manager and see if there is a stray Scout-App.exe process that needs to be killed
otherwise, you need to provide information like your OS, the version of Scout-App, etc

@TheJaredWilcurt I am @ghost~608715566da03739847b0e16.
OS: Windows 10 version 20H2 (OS compilation 19042.928)
Version of Scout-App: 2.18.16
So, I am using WSL. I do a map network drive to my ubuntu WSL and that happened. Console:

@TheJaredWilcurt
the github avatars failing to load is new, but I can reproduce that. Fortunately that doesn't affect anything other than the About screen showing contributor names instead of faces.
Did you map it to a Drive letter, like Z: or something?
Scout-App just uses the file system to load and save files, so as long as there is a file path with a drive letter, it shouldn't know any different if it's local or on a network
but WSL has a lot of issues with compatibility with native windows software, so it could be something there

@TheJaredWilcurt
if you want you could try to run the latest Scout-App from source, it has several bug fixes that have not been released yet. https://github.com/scout-app/scout-app/blob/master/documentation/running-latest.md

How to reset settings in scout-app ?!
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
@tem4ik.cappe:matrix.org View > DevTools > Console > scout.helpers.deleteLocalSettingsFile(true);require('nw.gui').Window.get().reload()
that will delete all your settings, including your projects

Hi! Can I use Autoprefixer in scout now? Version 2.18.16
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
Scout-App is just a UI for Sass. Autoprefixer is a plugin for the PostCSS ecosystem

@2ty2wo_twitter
That's!)

I've been using Scout-App for years, but just got a new Windows 11 machine and cannot get .style.scss to compile. I'm not seeing any errors. I'm using Sublime Text 3 - do I need to install Sass on the same drive? I don't remember how to set this up exactly. Help please?
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
Everything Scout-App needs comes built in
@kanjigirl make sure you have an input and output folder that are different from each other. When you click the "Run" (play button) for your project, does it process it once and then not process anymore when there are changes, or does it not even do it the first time

@kanjigirl
Figured it out - dumb mistake. All good, thank you.

Another question - I'm getting this error when compiling on a project where I've never gotten it before (actually I've never seen this error in any project): Incompatible units: 'em' and 'empx'.
_core.scss
52: } @else {
53: @media ( min-width: (fixed($min) + em($grid-gutter))
($base-font-size / 16px) ) {
54:
Where is _core.scss? It's not part of my project, and not in the Sublime Text theme or color scheme.
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
Are you using @import "breakpoint";
Scout-App comes with many popular mixin libraries built-in. https://github.com/lesjames/breakpoint/blob/master/breakpoint/_core.scss#L53
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
that is the line with the error. If you have a file in your code called breakpoint.sass or breakpoint.scss or _breakpoint.sass or _breakpoint.scss, then I would recommend renaming it to _breakpoints.sass or _breakpoints.scss or something else, just to avoid that conflict. Though if you are using .scss then you should be able to import it without renaming, but just using the file extension in the import. Since the built-in mixin ends in .sass

maybe a dumb question but which version of sass is supported by Scout? (in other words, can we use @use etc?)
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
No, that feature didn't exist during the last release (2019). Scout-App uses Node-Sass v4.11.0, which has bindings for LibSass v3.5.4
Future releases will be based on Dart-Sass, and have the new API's.
But I'm waiting on nw-builder to be updated (automated build tool) before I work towards that. It is in progress
matthijs-ll
@matthijs-ll
Ahhh too bad, as Sass recommends using @use .. Any idea when the dart-sass based release will be?
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
Not at this time. if you are comfortable with the command line, then you may want to use sass via npm
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
Current blockers:
  • Doing builds by hand in Scout-App is a big pain. NW-Builder is an automated build tool that is being updated and will have a major API change soon.
  • I plan on making a wrapper for nw-builder for automating more complex tasks once the API settles
  • The code in Scout-App was the second real project I did of software development, back in 2015. So it really needs to be re-written with newer technologies, which brings the opportunity for a redesign and change of features.
  • The style of the application (top nav, left sidebar with projects list, right panel for current project) is basically the model I've come to want to use in about a dozen ideas I've had for apps. So I'd like to make a nice boilerplate for that first, then build Scout-App on top of it.
    TLDR: After nw-builder does a new release, I'm going to make a library built on top of it, after that, I'm going to make a boilerplate using that library, after that, I'm going to probably start on Scout-App 3

@matthijs-ll
but I like the source information in dev mode D':
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
all of that is possible with the sass node module. Scout-App is merely a UI abstraction for that underlying engine

hey guys, does anyone know why is my Scout-app doesnt apply any changes in my .sass file ?
@support
The Jared Wilcurt
@TheJaredWilcurt
Not sure what you are asking
if your .sass file is in your input directory, then when you click Run (play button), it will process it to a CSS file in your output directory, or display an error
