Wanting to start delving into SASS, CoffeeScript, HAML, etc. to learn the new techniques and have heard of people using them with WordPress. Anyone out there that has used them (either development or production), I have a few questions:
- Are you running all Ruby on local development machines, compiling and serving static resources to production servers? If so, is MAMP (or MAMP Pro) a satisfactory way to do that? I've seen tools like LiveReload on Mac or plugins like Wordless that seem to indicate working locally is the best way to go.
- If dealing with clients that cannot run Ruby on their servers, will developing locally work?
- Any issues you may have run into with conflicts between Ruby and WordPress?
Trying to find ways to streamline my development processes and SASS could definitely prove useful with mixins, variables, etc. - looking for some direction on the best way to use these languages.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
