    Sass makes CSS fun!

    Synopsis first, with real examples. Rather than reading through parts of guides which are either irrelevant or already known, I like to see what it does, as in code/config with comments. When searching for a developer’s product I already know what I’m looking for and how it might look like. Synopsis gives a rich picture, which (even if not very clear in details) either matches expectations or does not.

    Guides are good for learning, manual references are good for referencing to details. Synopses are good for wading through possible options and not wasting your time. Landings are idk what for, most landings are useless marketing nonsense. Delete it, add some examples.

    Good example: https://lesscss.org/

    Mature, industry approved, feature rich, stable and powerful professional makes your hair silky and smooth example: https://sass-lang.com/

  • less.js
