NuGet Version

Sass Compiler Library for .NET Core 3.1/5.x./6.x without node.


The installation of this package is quite simple, you can install this package using NuGet with the following command:

# Package Manager
PM> Install-Package AspNetCore.SassCompiler

dotnet add package AspNetCore.SassCompiler


After adding the package, the Sass styles from the SourceFolder (defaults to: Styles) will automatically be compiled into .css files in the TargetFolder (defaults to: wwwroot\css) on build. You can also adjust the default configuration in the appsettings.json or sasscompiler.json, do note that when using appsettings.json the configuration needs to be nested under a "SassCompiler" property, but when you're using sasscompiler.json the settings should not be nested.

Available options

Name Default value Description
SourceFolder "Styles" The folder where all the .scss files reside
TargetFolder "wwwroot/css" The folder to output the generated .css files to
Arguments "--error-css" Arguments passed to the dart-sass executable
GenerateScopedCss true Enable/disable support for scoped scss
ScopedCssFolders ["Views", "Pages", "Shared", "Components"] The folders in which .scss files are considered for scoped css
IncludePaths [] Add folders to search in when importing modules

Sass watcher

To use the Sass watcher in your project, you must add the following code to your startup.cs:

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services) 


We recommend adding the #if DEBUG statement to only use a watcher during debug mode.

Note: The Sass watcher is currently not supported inside of a docker container. This should only be an issue when you're developing inside of a docker container, running the published application in docker is supported as the compiler is automatically run during the MSBuild publish step. See this issue for the progress.

Blazor WASM

If you use this with Blazor WebAssembly and want to customize the settings you need to use the sasscompiler.json, using appsettings.json is not supported. The sass watcher is currently not supported for Blazor WebAssembly projects, the MSBuild task is still available and will compile your scss during build and publish.


This library also includes an MSBuild task that runs during the publish of your application. Because of this you don't need to include the Sass Watcher in your release builds and you can safely add the generated .css files to the .gitignore file as they are regenerated during publish.
