Works really well and is so simple to understand, with almost no setup

Before prepros, I had several atom plugins to compile, and push to a live-server. I used gulp and webpack but the things I developed were small-mid sized projects so it felt like overkill using those tools. Too much time to setup, and I always seem to have build errors with them. All I needed was a basic Typescript / PUG / SCSS compiler and instantaneously hot-reload so I can see changes live.

The only plugin you need with your IDE is a "Ctrl+S" save all files, atom-save-all plugin, so prepros can populate all changes instantly

EDIT

Prepros doesn't customize / configure properly (there's no save settings button on the settings page). You need to turn off and turn on prepros everytime you save a setting. Its only good if you have to run default settings only, anything else using webpack / gulp is better.

Prepos is awesome, but the description that's it is free for personal use is only half true.
It stops working after a while and you can press 'continue trial' to keep using it but it is quite annoying.

Simply great for using with any IDE

So far I have used this tool with Netbeans and PHP Storm and haven't found any issue, automaticaly detects changes and compiles SASS and LESS, haven't used it with other languages though, but so far it has a great interface, setting projects is really really fast and the minificaation and compiling options are just great, it's worth the price
