Package sass build does not work in sublime 4


I am using Sublime Text Build 4169. I am taking a course on SCSS that suggested Sublime Text, so I am using this editor for the course. I had to install “SASS Build” to compile or process SCSS files. I have also installed SASS using Ruby. I can run SASS directly on my command prompt as Ruby has been added to the Windows Path.

But when I use the Build command, I get the following message:

‘sass’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I am very new to Sublime Text as I have been using VS Code for a long time. I am not sure what terminal package should be installed to check this and why the command is not being executed.

Is there a way to see the actual command that goes to the shell? I don’t know if Sublime is invoking Shell.

I am using Windows 11, 64 Bit.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.



You need to have the sass command line tool installed and working before the build system can work. See



Thanks, it worked like a charm.
