Ionic2 default starter ignores all sass files

The default starter has sass files in every page’s folder. For some reason those files aren’t compiled.

As far as I can tell the module ionic-gulp-sass-build doesn’t even intend to do so.

Is this on purpose?!

I found the answer:

“Before these custom styles will take effect, you will need to import them into the core .scss file, so if I had a component called checklist that had a checklist.scss file, I would need to add the following line to my app.core.scss file”:

@import "pages/checklist/checklist";
