I am working on a Foundation based theme.. however I would like to not use ruby.
Does anyone have experience/recommendations on how to go about using one of the available PHP based compilers rather than ruby with Foundation and Silverstripe?
I know Foundation uses SASS, so I imagine I need a PHP SASS complier like :
Just unsure how this can integrate with silverstripe.

Depends on how you want to integrate. Full integration would be nice so SS builds and caches the files. But this could be involved. I would use it outside of SS, code in sass and use your preferred compiler. Checkout grunt.js you can set it to watch a directory and perform tasks on file change. So it can auto compile sass to css with what ever compiler you like, although this will be breaking out of a strictly php set up :)
