Web Extensions throws error when compiling SASS
Having wasted a couple of hours tracking this error down, I thought I'd share it in case I can help anyone else. Here's my scenario:
|Web Extensions||Not sure!|
The symptom is that when I saved my SCSS files, I got this message:
Error reading values after )
Googling failed to throw up anything.
I've also tried CompileSass and Web Workbench, but neither gave good results.
After trial and error (disabling include files line by line), I eventually tracked down the error to this line:
// having this as !Important (capital I)
// stopped web extensions working (threw error)
background: darken($alpha,0%) !important;
So it turns out a capital I cost me two hours of work!
