Nuget Package

LibSassBuilder NuGet package adds a build task to compile Sass files to .css. It's compatible with both MSBuild (VS) and dotnet build.

No configuration is required, it will compile the files implicitly on project build.

  • Optionally provide arguments (see Options below):

  <LibSassOutputStyle Condition="'$(Configuration)' == 'Debug'">expanded</LibSassOutputStyle>
  • Or take control of what files to process


  <SassFile Include="Vendor/**/*.scss" /> 
  <SassFile Include="Styles/**/*.scss" Exclude="Styles/unused/**" />
  • Or ignore all previous options (except for <LibSassMessageLevel>) and determine the arguments to the tool yourself

  <LibSassBuilderArgs>directory "$(MSBuildProjectDirectory)"</LibSassBuilderArgs>
