Can I still use Koala for SASS when customizing a theme in Mendix 8?
I have been working on a project in Mendix 7 for a number of months and have customized the theme by editing the .scss in the theme/styles/sass/custom folder. I am upgrading the project to Mendix 8 and the custom theming has changed, I have followed the troubleshooting guide and I have it working but I have found that when I make a change to the .scss files it often doesn’t get deployed when I run locally. I always used Koala with Mendix 7, it’s very easy, you just open it pointed at the project folder and it just works. In Mendix 8 it doesn’t work any more – I found this doc https://docs.mendix.com/howto/front-end/set-up-sass and I have used the ux-theming Gulp setup that is described – and it works. That’s more hassle than just opening Koala though, so can anyone help with what I’d need to change to get it working again with Koala?
I installed Koala and added my Mendix 8 Test-main project directory and it automatically picked up my input and output source as displayed in screenshot below. I made a change in Sass file and they got compiled and worked as expected. Please can you make sure your input and output source folders are setup correctly as displayed below?
