Join John Riviello for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the challenges, part of CSS to Sass: Converting an Existing Site.
- This course includes several videos called challenges. Challenges are quick activities that give you a hands on opportunity to practice and master what you're learning. I'll start each challenge by describing your core objectives for the activity. I'll also review the exercise files you'll be using to complete the challenge, and give you a rough estimate of how much time it took me to complete the challenge. When you've completed a challenge make sure to check out the matching solution video. In each solution I'll show you how I solved the challenge and give you some of my thinking along the way. Again, this is an opportunity for you to master what you've been learning.
I hope you have some fun with them.
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.
