When you will be writing your code in .scss file, the system will be judge all your written code. After judgment, if all code is correct and decorated, the system will be sent to the CSS files.
Before this process, you have to install SASS in your local computer where you will be coding. Then you have to go to your project directory using Command Prompt. Once you will be going to the project directory using Command Prompt type following command by replacing your project and file name.
sass --watch yourfile.scss:yourfile.css
In the above command replace with your file name. If your file in another directory you can write below command for your project.
