I just did a composer update and now I'm getting the following error:

[User Error] Compass Error:LoadError on line 36 of /Library/Ruby/Site/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb: no such file to load -- bundler/setupRun with --trace to see the full backtrace

Any ideas why this might be happening? I noticed that the composer update pulled in silverstripe/compass

Thank you very much.

Kind regards,

Strange that this is happening after the recent composer update as the Compass module has been in composer.json all along.

In any case, I've removed the Compass module from composer.json as a workaround, as I use Compass from the CLI anyway.

Having a look this [url= =]issue on Github[/a], am I correct in assuming that many don't use this module anyway?

You only need the compass module if you're dev'ing on the core admin / cms. I personally prefer using compass via command line or grunt (

Thanks for clarifying that Will. I'd already removed it from my composer.json. Thanks also for pointing out Grunt.
