Introduction to Sass

CSS is anything but DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself).

We’re constantly writing the same snippets of code for colors, fonts, and frequently-used patterns of style throughout our stylesheets. This means that CSS stylesheets can be immensely repetitive: Colors, fonts, oft-used groupings of properties, etc.

As interfaces and web applications become more robust and complex, we’re bending the original design of CSS to do things it never dreamed of doing. Here comes Sass (Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets) to the rescue!

Sass is a CSS preprocessor—a layer between the stylesheets you author and the .css files you serve to the browser. Sass plugs the holes in CSS as a language, allowing you to write DRY code that’ll be faster, more efficient, and easier to maintain.

So while normal CSS doesn’t yet allow things like variables, mixins (reusable blocks of styles), and other goodies, Sass provides a syntax that does all of that and more—enabling “super functionality” in addition to your normal CSS.
