After a year off from work (I was on maternity leave) I’m finally getting a chance to catch up on what I’ve missed from the Web Development community. One of which is CSS Preprocessors which has been around for a few years now. I won’t go into the details to describe what it is so I’ve listed a few popular and most used CSS Preprocessors.
After reading about CSS Preprocessors I’ve decided to explore and experiment with Sass based on these reasons:
“Sass makes it easier to write less CSS codes and manipulate them dynamically. It’s a great way to write more functional CSS codes and can speed up the workflow of every web developer and designer” – from 1st Web Designer
“It’s a way to simplify your CSS workflow, making development and maintenance tasks easier. For instance, have you ever had to do a find-and-replace in your stylesheet to change a particular HEX color for a particular indecisive client? Or had to open up the calculator app to figure out a column width in a multi-column design? Sass introduces new concepts such as variables, mixins, nestings and selector inheritance” – from Treehouse Blog
