What is SASS?

Sass (Syntactically awesome stylesheets) is a CSS preprocessor.

  • Some features include:
    • Writing and defining Variables
    • Clear inheritance with Nested Rules
    • Using Mixins as re-usable objects
    • Doing maths with the operators (+, -, *, /) and functions
  • And, it is actively supported by a large community of developers to stay ahead.

Why use SASS ?

While CSS is a great language, it has some limitations.

For example, if you have a color code used multiple times in your stylesheet, you need to edit this one multiple times to update your design. Very tedious process!

Sass is the most reliable, stable, and powerful professional grade CSS extension language. It has been chosen as the premier CSS extension language.

Sass is great for the following reasons. :

  • Less code and repetition - allows to cut down one code and save time
  • The stylesheet are formatted nicely with a more dynamic code
  • It makes logical sense to break out CSS into multiple files with the feature

Every web developer or front-end UI engineer should use a pre-processor language over traditional CSS
