I have used the asset pipeline heavily since its release in Rails 3.1.0 over two years ago. Only recently did I run in to a handful of gotchas when it came to dealing with stylesheet compilations using Sass. error: cannot access named params by position error: cannot access named params by position I guest wrote a post about my experience using SASS in the asset pipeline at Unbounce.
