Compiles Sass files in the background when .scss files are saved in Visual Studio. Resulting files will end in .min.css.
CompileSass looks for all files with the .scss extension and whenever a Sass file is compiled, all .scss files in the project will be compiled.
Uses LibSass, resulting in fast compile times.
Supports Sass files beginning with underscore, which are never compiled into their own files.
The point of this project was to continue support for Visual Studio 2015, because Web Essentials no longer supports compiling Sass. This is great if you don't want to jump into Grunt/Gulp for Sass compilation.
If you still have Web Essentials installed, disable Sass compilation in the Web Essentials settings in the Visual Studio Options. Otherwise, it will compete with CompileSass.
