    He does not go by SASS, he goes by Sass, but this is of course a nice way to make it look more similar. I work as Webdeveloper. Instead of using CSS directly we often use Sass (https://sass-lang.com/). Is this a nazi tool? Am i a nazi now?

    This is a Hugo course so we’re not going to go into any CSS. However, you and I can both agree that the default browser styles leave a lot to be desired. Not only am I going to give you a stylesheet, it’s going to be a Sass stylesheet to make it easy to maintain as you expand your website.

    We’re not going to go into any CSS details in this series to keep the focus on learning Eleventy. That doesn’t mean we’re going to avoid the subject completely however, learning how to build Sass files will be extremely valuable throughout your Eleventy journey.

    What's the best way to go about automatically compiling and serving CSS generated from SCSS, with change detection, and caching? I see the old system has Dancer::Plugin::Preprocess::Sass, but I found no equivalent for Dancer2. Am I stuck porting it, or is there a plugin I might have missed?
  • How to start a TailwindCSS project with SCSS

    SASS is a CSS preprocessor that makes writing CSS more efficient and in my opinion much easier. In this post, I'll show you how you can set up SASS with TailwindCSS in your project. For this purpose we will use Vite as a build tool.

    First of all I'm using Sass and CSS Modules if you've seen some of my earlier posts you'll have seen I used to use styled-components and whilst I think they have their place I'm much happier using CSS Modules.
