CJSS vs Sass: What are the differences?

Developers describe CJSS as "A CSS based web framework". First off, everything happens in your CSS file. You can layer this into your websites as you see fit. You can use this to layer on just a little bit more functionality in your CSS here and there or construct an entire page. On the other hand, Sass is detailed as "Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets". Sass is an extension of CSS3, adding nested rules, variables, mixins, selector inheritance, and more. It's translated to well-formatted, standard CSS using the command line tool or a web-framework plugin.

CJSS and Sass can be categorized as "CSS Pre-processors / Extensions" tools.

CJSS and Sass are both open source tools. It seems that Sass with 12K GitHub stars and 1.93K forks on GitHub has more adoption than CJSS with 659 GitHub stars and 19 GitHub forks.

StylusStylusSassSass
and
PostCSSPostCSS

Originally, I was going to start using Sass with Parcel, but then I learned about Stylus, which looked interesting because it can get the property values of something directly instead of through variables, and PostCSS, which looked interesting because you can customize your Pre/Post-processing. Which tool would you recommend?

You're not correct with saying "vs Postcss". You're using Less/Sass/Stylus/... to produce "CSS" (maybe extended means it has some future features) and then in any case PostCSS will play (it is shipped with Parcel/NextJS/CRA/...)

          PostCSS is a tool for transforming CSS with JS plugins. These plugins can support variables and mixins, transpile future CSS syntax, inline images, and more.
          Stylus
          Stylus is a revolutionary new language, providing an efficient, dynamic, and expressive way to generate CSS. Supporting both an indented syntax and regular CSS style.
