|Tame your CSS with SASS
Have you ever came across a project with 3+ variants of the same color because someone forgot the original Hex color? What about an unorganized 5k+ line CSS file? SASS, or Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets, is a CSS meta-language that extends on modern CSS to provide a better developer experience and help make CSS maintainable. We will explore the basics of SASS, organize a large CSS file, and utilize the key features of SASS to reduce duplicate code.
