What you'll learn

  • Use the SASS preprocessor and compile its code into CSS.
  • Extend the capabilities of writing standard CSS.
  • Use template selectors and mixins.
  • Create and work with variables.


With the development of technology and the complexity of layouts came the need to automate the writing of CSS properties. The presence of color schemes and additional values that determine the values of properties revealed difficulties in development. To get rid of the routine and turn CSS writing into a process similar to programming were invented preprocessors - special languages that were compiled into CSS. They allow you to create reusable CSS code, use variables, and extend the capabilities of CSS writing. In this course, you will learn the basics of the SASS preprocessor that will allow you to write maintainable and usable CSS code in a short time.
