Join John Riviello for an in-depth discussion in this video Integrate eyeglass-spriting's CSS into our website, part of CSS to Sass: Converting an Existing Site.
- Once we've used eyeglass-spriting…to generate a sprite image and its associated CSS,…we now need to use the classes that generate…in our html, so our webpage will actually load the sprite.…First I want to make sure we have grunt watch running…so we can see our Sass changes immediately in our browser.…So let's open the Terminal…and we'll run grunt if it's not already running.…And we have our watch process in place now.…Let's go back to Sublime Text and we'll open up…our index.html file.…We'll scroll all the way down…to our social media icons.…
And if you look back at the generate CSS…the new class names are…icon, dash, the social media network of choice.…So we'll go here and we'll make this…icon-twitter, and I'll copy that for the other ones.…Add the icon dash in front of facebook,…and in front of instagram.…So let's save that.…Then let's go to our styles.scss file,…and then we can adjust the current styles…we have in place for those icons.…So we'll search for social,…here it is.…
We no longer need these classes…
In these Sass tutorials, students will learn the benefits of libSass over the original Ruby Sass, and set up a Sass-friendly development environment with Node.js and Grunt. A unique aspect of this course is learning how to handle challenges specific to integrating Sass with an existing website, such as new debugging workflows and the variables and mixins worth the effort to define. Author John Riviello also introduces a few Sass tools that speed up media query handling, automatic browser prefixing, and sprite generation. At the end of the course, he shows how your setup work pays off, styling a whole new section of the practice site in just 15 minutes.
