Description

What is Sass?

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.

What is PostCSS?

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.

What is Compass?

The compass core framework is a design-agnostic framework that provides common code that would otherwise be duplicated across other frameworks and extensions.
