Sassee and Compass

Trying to get Sassee working with my ExpressionEngine install. Does it support Compass? I'm getting the following error when it tries to parse my .scss file:

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'SassException' with message 'Unable to find import file: compass/reset/utilities'

I could very well have things mis-configured, but thought I'd ask here too.

    Compass support isn't included in Sassee (yet) but I am looking into it.

    As a workaround, I've set up my templates to to save to file. Then, I'm using the following command to watch for changes in my 'sass' directory and write them to my '' directory (which will eventually be synchronized with the template stored in the database):

    compass watch ./sass --css-dir ./ --images-dir ./../../../../images/static/ --javascripts-dir ./

    Everything in the template directory and below is tracked and versioned by Git.

    @Cathal: Well... if you are able to install ruby/sass on your server you don't really need this addon, do you? This was meant as an alternative to installing SASS on your server.

    Seems like Development of Sassee has stopped, but if it ever picks up again supporting Compass would be a great feature!
