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?
&selector (tagged 3.3)
iffunction (tagged 3.3)
- Advanced operations for lists (tagged 3.3)
- Sourcemaps (tagged 3.3)
- Prefixed namespacing like in BEM, OOCSS & SMACSS (Github)
Some other raised issues that have been raised and addressed, as if they'll be implemented are:
- Maps support
@forloop to support decrementing
@at-rootrule 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.
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!
