      What are some alternatives to PostCSS and Vuetify?
      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.
      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.
      CSS Modules
      It is a CSS file in which all class names and animation names are scoped locally by default. The key words here are scoped locally. With this, your CSS class names become similar to local variables in JavaScript. It goes into the compiler, and CSS comes out the other side.
      Less
      Less is a CSS pre-processor, meaning that it extends the CSS language, adding features that allow variables, mixins, functions and many other techniques that allow you to make CSS that is more maintainable, themable and extendable.
      node-sass
      It is a library that provides binding for Node.js to LibSass, the C version of the popular stylesheet preprocessor, Sass. It allows you to natively compile .scss files to css at incredible speed and automatically via a connect middleware.

      PostCSS essentially allows you to set up your own CSS preprocessor with the features that matter to you. It has a modular plugin-based architecture, which means that if someone comes up with a useful new feature, you can easily add it to your stack as a PostCSS plugin. PreCSS and PostCSS-cssnext are some of my go-to plugins.

      PostCSS handles compiling node-based CSS libraries, including BassCSS (the whole site is only ~85 lines of custom CSS). It also does auto-vendor-prefixing and support for CSS variables.

      We wrote a lot of flexbox and css that needed prefixing. PostCSS + Webpack was the best option here.

      We use Vuetify because we needed something that back end devs could get up to speed with quickly
