The following functions require Node.js to work:
sass: nodeconfiguration in
You don’t need to worry about Node.js most of the time. You need to install it on your system along with yarn (an alternative package manager for Node.js). The rest will be handled automatically.
Under the hood Rhino will create a
.rhino/node directory in your project to store the specific libraries needed by these tools. This directory is git-ignored by default and safe to remove.
build_sass() function is worth an additional comment. Depending on the configuration in
rhino.yml it can use either the sass Node.js package or the sass R package. We recommend the Node.js version, as it is the primary, actively developed implementation of Sass. In contrast, the R package uses the deprecated LibSass implementation.
