On the fly SASS compilation does not work in the v8 starter app

When I run the starter app using Spring Tools suite in eclipse, on the fly sass compilation does not work. I have run a maven build to get it to regenerate the theme.


The first thing that comes to mind is that you have run the theme compilation once.
That would make the on the fly compilation to not run as there is a compiled theme already available.

…and the easy solution would be to delete the compiled .css file.


Yea it must have been something related to that. I had been running the app using both the eclipse maven plugin and also the spring tools suite plugin. I believe the Maven build was creating the styles.css, which must have prevented the app from picking up changes in the .scss files.

It’s working now when running via spring tools suite. Thanks!
