I'm loving Sails.js at the moment. It's a great way for someone like myself to get knee deep in back-end development and to understand the MVC structure better whilst writing code in a front-end language. It's a breeze to use and set-up.
I had one major issue with it though, and that is it uses LESS as it's default CSS pre-processor. That doesn't cut it for me. I ditched LESS in favour of Sass a few years ago as I feel it has more functionality and functions more like a programming language.
So I set about removing LESS from the Sails and using Sass instead.
If, like me, you prefer Sass over LESS. Give it a try, it's easy.
Install the latest stable release of Sails.js with the command-line tool:
sudo npm -g install sails
Clone this repo:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:jonnyhaynes/SassySails.git testProject
Install the Node dependencies
cd testProject npm install
Now lift the server:
At this point, if you visit (http://localhost:1337/) you will see the default home page.
