Pug vs Sass: What are the differences?
Pug and Sass are primarily classified as "Templating Languages & Extensions" and "CSS Pre-processors / Extensions" tools respectively.
"Elegant html", "Great with nodejs" and "Open source" are the key factors why developers consider Pug; whereas "Variables", "Mixins" and "Nested rules" are the primary reasons why Sass is favored.
Pug and Sass are both open source tools. It seems that Pug with 18.3K GitHub stars and 1.9K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Sass with 12K GitHub stars and 1.93K GitHub forks.
StackShare, HubSpot, and thoughtbot are some of the popular companies that use Sass, whereas Pug is used by Sellsuki, triGo GmbH, and Key Location. Sass has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2082 company stacks & 1445 developers stacks; compared to Pug, which is listed in 173 company stacks and 118 developer stacks.
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?
