# Using Compass on a Lando Node Service
node based frontend build steps rely on
compass. If you have such a flow we highly recommend you escape dependency hell and migrate your
sass build steps to use
node-sass which is way faster.
However, if you cannot do this you may run into some issues running
compass inside of your
node container since this pattern is fundamentally at odds with Lando's one-thing-per-container model.
You can, however, get around it by installing
compose directly in the
node service that requires them.
Below is an example that installs
compass using build-steps.
services: myservice: type: node:12 build_as_root: - apt-get update -y - apt-get install ruby-full -y - gem install compass tooling: ruby: service: myservice compass: service: myservice
You can verify with:
lando ruby -v lando compass -v
You should now be able to run any build steps that require
compass as in this example:
services: myservice: type: node:12 globals: grunt-cli: latest build_as_root: - apt-get update -y - apt-get install ruby-full -y - gem install compass build: - grunt build:sass tooling: ruby: service: myservice compass: service: myservice
