How to add another compass compiler to php storm


Recently I have updated my compass version to 1.0.3 and when I tried to compile my old projects with 1.0.3 compiler and it didn’t work.

So, I had two options left,

In the popup window, enter below values.

3

Once you save it you can see your new compiler,
