Alternatives to Compass in a Rails project

For years we were using Compass with Sass with our product, Krrb, to make our lives (mine at least) a bit easier:

  • no browser prefixes to take care off
  • cool shortcuts
  • easy image sprites generation

However, there were still performance issues.

Compass is huge and take lots of time to compile—from five to eight seconds for each deploy. So I decided to get rid of it completely.
