Okay, maybe I'm a complete idiot, but I have no idea how to get started with Omega 4. I have read countless posts about it, and how it uses SASS, and how you should never use SASS, you should Ruby instead, etc. etc. And I've read the Drupal.org documentation that describes how to use Drush to create a sub-theme, etc. etc -- and nowhere does it mention anything about Ruby, SASS, etc. etc. Everyone's just talking about Ruby, Compass, LiveReload, and I feel like I've been dropped in the middle of a forest and been told to build a taxi cab.
Here is what I do know: I've got a Drupal site, on an Acquia Dev Cloud server. I've got a MacBook Pro, with Git, Drush, Acquia Dev Desktop, BBEdit, Coda, Dreamweaver, Tower, and lots of other desktop applications. I've got fingers, eyes, ice tea and some snacks.
Here's what I don't know....
- Are you guys all talking about Ruby and SASS etc as local development tools -- instead of, say, BBEdit, Coda, or Dreamweaver -- that I would use to do CSS work for my Omega sub-theme and then those development tools would process it into stylesheets for the theme?
- Or are you talking about setting up something on the Drupal website to process the theme before it gets served out by Drupal?
- Or something else entirely?
