explicit update SASS in Rails Application

Sass (Syntactically Awesome StyleSheets)?
Available @
Is a fine way to produce clean and easy CSS code using a meta-scripting-language. It has feature for developer ease like variables, nesting, mixins, and selector inheritance.

If you are somehow using Sass in your Ruby-On-Rails application and using the default Webrick to serve the web content, it automatically updates the "public/stylesheets/*.css" files from your styling meta-script in "public/stylesheets/sass/*.css".

But, if you are using any other web-server (like, thin)..... in that case you'll have to get your CSS files to be explicitly updated using 'sass --update' action.

$ bundle exec sass --update 
--watch public/stylesheets/sass:public/stylesheets

So, include it in your deploy Rake Tasks and get updated stylesheets everytime without fail.
