Hammer for Mac

I don’t like having to download a bunch of prerequisites to install an app. And I don’t like having to dive into terminal to use it. I don’t want to have to deal with the UNIX underbelly of my OS. Ever.

That’s why I never got into using SASS. That’s why I never even attempted Yeoman, despite the tremendous hoopla around it. I don’t doubt that it’s good. I just can’t be bothered with the hassle of it.

Enter Hammer, from Riot.

Hammer basically takes what Yeoman does, and wraps it in a dependancy free, easy to install, easy to set up, and easy to use little app that’s dripping with good design.

Hammer compiles all your SASS, SCSS, LESS and CoffeeScript, so you don’t need to worry about installing Compass and Ruby and all that crap. It just does it.

It’s really cool. And well worth the price of admission. I’d very much encourage anyone to — at the very least — download the free trial. It’s a great tool.
