Koala Brings SASS to My iOS Project

I’ve been using SASS in Rails projects for years. How I wrote CSS before is hard to imagine but I didn’t have to imagine it for long. As I began work on the Flojuggler iOS app I realized that I had to write some raw CSS. Was not a problem but… kinda sucked. So, I looked around for a tool that would let me write SASS without needing a server side interpreter. I shopped around, tried a few, and decided that Koala is the marsupial for the job.


Koala is a GUI application for Less, Sass, Compass and CoffeeScript compilation, to help web developers to use them more efficiently. Koala can run in windows, linux and mac.


As you save files, Koala compiles the code and writes another file. You include the written file in your project. Not just CSS either. This tool makes it super easy to compile and minify JavaScript files, too. Check the feature list.

  1. Multi-language Support: support for Less,Sass, CoffeeScript and Compass Framework.

  2. Real-time Compilation: listening files, compile automatically when the file changes, that everything is running in the background without user action.

  3. Compile Options Support: you can set the compiler options for each file.

  4. Compression: auto compress code after compilation is completed.

  5. Error Notification: if encountered an error during compilation, koala will pop up the error message.

  6. Cross-platform: koala can run in Windows, Mac and Linux.
