Sass vs styled-components: What are the differences?
Sass: 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; styled-components: Visual primitives for the component age. Use the best bits of ES6 and CSS to style your apps without stress. Visual primitives for the component age. Use the best bits of ES6 and CSS to style your apps without stress 💅.

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?
