When editing theme styles you can update the
style.css file directly, either through Zendesk Guide or locally using your favourite code editor. Alternatively, you can work with the Sass source files directly, which requires that you re-compile the styles once you have made your changes.
Our themes all include a simple Ruby script for handling the Sass compilation step, which can be found in the
bin/ folder. The script requires both Ruby and the
sassc gem to be installed. Once you have installed Ruby by following these instructions, you can install the
sassc gem using the shell command
gem install sassc.
You can now compile your Sass files by running the command
./bin/compile.rb from your theme directory, which will take all the
.scss files inside the
scss/ folder and create the
style.css file that is used by Zendesk Guide.
