IT:AD:SASS

Summary

  • Runs on Ruby.
    • ie have to install Ruby first, then install SASS, and Compass:
  • SASS/Compass is a Dev process. What is deployed is the transformed output, ie plain old css.

Dependencies

  • Watching the *.scss file to convert it:

Example:

sass --watch "C:\Users\Ciel\Documents\sassme.scss"
# or more explicitly:
sass --watch "C:\Users\Ciel\Documents\sassme.scss":"C:\Users\Ciel\Documents\style.css"
# although this probably won't be what you need:
sass --watch "C:\Users\Ciel\Documents\sassme.scss":"style.css"

Comparison to LESS

  • Nice that we are no longer discussing whether preprocessing CSS is smart or not – the conversation has moved on to 'which solution?'
  • See: LESS
