Create Elegant Websites, Web Apps on Cloud with Compass Framework. Compass has Ruby based Free CLI Environment for Development and Paid App. As we mentioned in our previous guides, there are Characteristics For Being a Cloud Application. For Mobile Application Development, we wrote about Junior for HTML5 Mobile Apps. We provided enough examples like with Rackspace Cloud Files and Bootstrap; practically we have many such examples on this website, the Cloud Hosting Platform is either fully Free or Costs a Minimum. These are great for designing the Frontend, even if a Server is required as back, such as to host an API.

Introduction to Websites, Web Apps on Cloud with Compass Framework
Nowadays, the projects are becoming so much great with elaborated documentation that except providing links, one technology website needs nothing extra to provide to the readers. That is great.
If you are a Mac user, you will probably have a setup like we have described on our guide for iTerm2, Homebrew and ZSH Installation on OS X. Ruby Gems might not get installed without using sudo command, you need to use the default Terminal in that case.
Here is the repository of Compass :
Practically the only command to install Compass is :
sudo gem install compass
As we said before, sudo will be refused by Homebrew, so run the command from default Terminal App, not iTerm2. From iTerm, you can create an app with the command :
compass create project-name
# replace project-name with your real name of app
There are two GUI Apps, one is paid (it is official) and one Free :
# paid app
# free app on Github Pages
The initial guide links from Compass official website are for 100% newbie users, we do not think our users will need them. Still, you can search our website or our YouTube channel (search with => Dr. Abhishek Ghosh YouTube ) on Google Web Search and you will get lot of different kind of Tutorials for various level of users. Also, we have Podcast Chanel on Apple iTunes. Actually, people can not remember the website’s name and search with Dr. Abhishek Ghosh Cloud, Dr. Abhishek Ghosh Windows 7 etc. We can actually see the data from Google AdWords.
