Love bourbon for sass

Recently I am using another library than using compass. As what is described on its web

A simple and lightweight mixin library for Sass.

the reason I let go of compass and use this plugin is as my current development tool is that its very easy to compile and include in every project, Whenever I watch a sass i do not need to do any compass way, i just need do the same as what i did with:
[cc lang="php"]sass --watch file.scss:file.css --style compressed

I highly suggest that you guys try it out, install the plugin by using gem.

[cc lang="php"]gem 'bourbon' //or sudo gem 'bourbon'

once installed all you need to create a new project and bourbon install on the scss directory, say if you scss file is in /css/main.scss and cd to this directory in termina. Then:
[cc lang="php"]bourbon install
This will create a folder which including all the bourbon files and you just need to import that to your scss and then you are ready to use their library.
