Jump Start Sass

Published March 2016

Get a Jump Start on the popular CSS preprocessor Sass today!

Sass bridges the gap between what CSS can offer and what we as web developers need in our daily routine. Using Sass, you can write your stylesheets in a more concise, dynamic, and readable way, and cut down many of the tedious repetitive tasks that come with writing vanilla CSS. Sass simplifies your stylesheets, adding some useful features missing from CSS. Most importantly, Sass makes it easier to create web applications, takes out some monotony and overhead out of writing CSS, and will save you time.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to Sass for the beginner. Knowledge of HTML and CSS is assumed, some experience with JavaScript or another programming language is helpful.

Oh yeah, and the whole SitePoint library! Learn More.

  • Discover variables, mixins, and functions
  • Add logic to your stylesheets with loops and conditions
  • Best practice project architecture
  • PDF, EPUB, MOBI 159 pg
