Sass is a widely used CSS preprocessor that surfaced in 2007 and has rapidly become the most used CSS preprocessor.

But what does the future hold for Sass and what can we look forward to?

Some other raised issues that have been raised and addressed, as if they'll be implemented are:

  • Maps support
  • Improved @for loop to support decrementing
  • @at-root rule to solve the issue of @extend within @media blocks (Github)

There are a lot more issues raised on their Github so it is definitely worth checking it out.

Since we started using Sass, we've been hooking up with Prepos which automatically compiles and produces a minified version of all our files, links them together into one nice build. It even does the same for our Javascript files. It's free and supports LESS, Sass, SCSS, Stylus, Jade, Slim, Coffeescript - the list goes on!

We'll be putting together some tutorials looking into how you can start taking advantage of Sass in your projects and code samples to see how everything works. The syntax is very easy and being able to use variables is brilliant!
