Hi. I have a problem with my _custom.scss

Hello, I’ve been working on a project with sass and bootstrap and at the beggining I customized bootstrap and It worked but now the customized things are not getting applied.

Here you can check - GitHub - MikeAvocato01/Bootstrap-5-project: Bootstrap 5 project

What specifically isn’t working?

BTW, don’t commit the node_modules folder. As long as you commit the package.json file anyone can install the needed packages.

Let me provide you with more context.

I have installed bootstrap and sass, I created a _custom.scss file to customize bootstrap, specifically the primary, secondary colors and accordions.

I use this partial in style.scss

and I link it to the index.html

But the change I made are not getting applied in bootstrap

The page should have a different colors in accordions and icons but I’m just getting the ones that come bt default with bootstrap

Doing a quick skim of the repo there’s a few things:

  1. As said above, don’t commit node_modules or your compiled style.css file, add a .gitignore file with the contents of:

Generally anything you “compile” you shouldn’t want to save to git. Your actual source-code is scss files, and the css is just the resulting code.

At a glace it I assume your custom scss is within _custom, but I don’t actually see where/how you import it? You have @use 'custom' but I’m not sure if that actually loads the _custom scss files.

Its worth saying I’m not a pro at custom scss setups so I could be missing something, but thats just what I see at a glance.

Try importing functions before your variables and bootstrap after the variable.


@import '../node_modules/bootstrap/scss/functions';

// custom variables

@import '../node_modules/bootstrap/scss/bootstrap.scss';

I just did and did not work! Thanks anyway!

Push the code so we can see it. It seems to work for me anyway.

@import '../node_modules/bootstrap/scss/functions';
