Great resources for Compass and Sass

Compass and Sass

With front-end design getting more and more attention in web development these days, it's not a wonder that the two are beginning to meld into one. It is crucial to maintain consistency and efficiency in web projects and Sass/Compass tackles this head on. In geek speak, Sass is a meta language integrated with CSS that makes stylesheets more manageable and less repetitive. This simply means you can create CSS without copying and pasting and having to constantly search for previous style references.

The beauty of implementing Sass/Compass is that the learning barrier is low and only requires general knowledge of CSS. It can be utilized in existing popular CSS frameworks because it actually compiles to CSS. Sass stands for Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets and it will create mixins, set variables, do math when necessary and much more. Compass is the open-source CSS authoring framework where you can write Sass.

Below we have included 35 resources for you to become introduced as well as an expert on Sass/Compass. After reviewing these resources, you'll be able to make the Internet prettier in less time. Enjoy!
