Well, it looks like we've reached the end of our introduction to the LESS and Sass tools.…Sass and LESS are an interesting new direction for Web developers, because they introduce…the concept of working in a higher level language than regular CSS, and just treat CSS as an…underlying layer that is part of the overall Web run-time.…So take what you've learned here, and go try out some new ideas on your own. Happy coding!… …
The first section focuses on LESS (Leaner CSS) and how it can be used on both the client and the server. The lessons show how to work with variables, mixins, nested rules, and other features to easily create maintainable CSS.
The second section introduces Sass (Syntactically awesome stylesheets), which contains many of the same features as LESS, along with a few new ones. Joe also compares and contrasts the two tools, and explains how your platform and needs may influence which tool you choose.
