This project adds support for editing Scss files.

Scss is one of two syntax available for Sass. Sass is an extension of CSS that adds power and elegance to the basic language. It allows you to use variables, nested rules, mixins, inline imports, and more, all with a fully CSS-compatible syntax. Sass helps keep large stylesheets well-organized, and get small stylesheets up and running quickly, particularly with the help of the Compass style library. Read more at

Necessary in NB 8.0?

Is this plugin necessary if you have installed NetBeans 8.0?

I don't think so!

Changes to source for NB 7.4?

I've cloned the source to my desktop.

What are the minimal changes necessary to make this plugin compatible with

NB 7.4?

Impossible to install 1.1.3 to NB 7.2

I am using Netbeans 7.2 and ver 1.1.1 works well.

But somehow when install 1.1.3 returns error like "Mime Lookup API" and "Editor Utilities" too old"(probably the same situation as Richnou's

I cant make sense what this means.

Impossible to install…


When i try to install the plugin, I obtain this message:

("Mime Lookup API" and "Editor Utilities" too old)

But when I ask Netbeans to check for updates, he said : "your ide is up to date"…

If I check for updates in Tools > Plugin, no updates are detected…

How can I do ?

PS: Netbeans 7.3b on Windows 8

Edit imported files

If I edit and save a file that is imported into the main .scss file, the main file should be compiled aswell. Using sass in a terminal does this, so I feel the plugin should, too.

The way it is now, we have to save the imported file, then go an make a slight modification in the main file, and save this too, in order to see the changes in the browser.

autocomplete broken

1. The curly bracket is not correctly indent in nested scss. For example, this is what happens:

a {

span {

display: none;



2. New line broken when you have curly bracket around:

a { display: none; }

-> you cannot add new line between curly bracket.

Please fix soon. Thanks!

My mac dies when I install this plugin

Something is wrong with this plugin. Netbeans CPU usage hits 100% as soon as I install it. I reported this bug several months ago but still the same. Please fix it.

Thanks a million for the latest update!

Thank you very much for creating the latest 7.3 update.

I'm using Netbeans on Linux and the previous versions you made of this plugin involved a lot of messing about to get the external SCSS installation working.

When I saw the increased filesize of this version, I suspected it may be because you have decided to bundle SCSS with it and I was right! It was a very nice surprise and installation is an absolute breeze.

I use your plugin all the time and could not live without it.

Thanks again!

Thanks, a bug, and a request…

Thanks so much for doing this!

There is a problem with the autocompletion though: It seems that once you have opened a curly brace, autocompletion only works properly for the first property you write. For all the following properties, only html tags are available.

I also have a request: Please, pretty please with sugar on top, could you add code folding?! It's a huge factor for me — one that always ends up with me reverting to sublimetext for scss editing.

No code autocompletion

I have fresh installation of NetBeans 7.3 and installed Sass Editor plugin but i don't have an autocompletion feature at all. After pressing ctrl+space only "No suggestions" pops up.
Posted by pawdat on Mar 08, 2013


I would be a very happy dude if this could be made to work in 7.3. Any chance of that happening?

NetBeans 7.2

Open /.netbeans/config/Modules/org-netbeans-modules-languages-scss.xml and modified the "enabled" property

A 7.2 version is available but contains unresolved bugs

Crushed my NetBeans 7.2

I know that this plugin is for NetBeans 7.1 but I thought that may be it'll work on 7.2, so I installed it. But then after restarting NetBeans it wouldn't start, so I'm working now on how to disable it.

Version 1.1.1 beta does work with NetBeans 7.2.1


Great plugin, thanks!

Compilation errors

Using 0.4 on NB 7.2.1, I get a lot of compilation errors and rgba( x, y, z, a ) get's corrupted during compilation ( a turns to 0 always ). I guess I should use the beta version, but I still need my NB :O

Not working with 7.2

Contrary to the comment by rhellyer, this plugin has completely broken my 7.2, NB won't start any more.

Do you expect to have update for 7.2 in near future?

Posted by loutka on Nov 13, 2012

Great plugin — seems to work with 7.2 — how do I use scss compilation?

Great and much needed plugin.

I am using beta version referred to below but formatting doesn't work —is that a setting that I am missing?

Autocompete featutre

I have the same suggestion as pinta83. CSS autocomplete would be great feature in this module. But still thanks for this great plugin
Posted by tomas.teicher on Oct 09, 2012
