Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Dive deeper into WordPress and Sass, part of WordPress: Developing with Sass and Grunt.js.
- Just like that we've come to the end of this course. If you've been following along from the beginning, you should now have a clear understanding of how to set up Grunt, Sass and the Grunt autoprefixer for your WordPress projects. And if you happen to be on a Windows computer, you also know how to get Node.js and Ruby up and running. You're now officially a WordPress development automation powerhouse and with the skills you've acquired by watching this course, you can expand your knowledge of Sass, Grunt, and all things that make automation and task running awesome.
Now that you have the core components down I urge you to visit the websites for Sass and the Grunt autoprefixer to get a solid idea of what these tools can do. I've only scratched the surface of what is possible with these tools in this course. So taking a deep dive into Sass and taking a close look at the documentation for Grunt autoprefixer, you're pretty much guaranteed to uncover new tricks you can use to make your development process better and more efficient. For a serious deep dive into all things Sass, you should check out Ray Vijolobo's class Responsive CSS with Sass and Compass.
Ray will teach you to do magic with these tools. If you want to dive deeper into the world of WordPress, we have a long list of courses to immerse yourself in. In particular, I would recommend watching WordPress Building Themes from Scratch Using Underscores. I'm not using Sass in that course, but if you're looking to learn how a WordPress theme comes together, that's the place to start. Now before I wrap up, I always say I love hearing from you about how you're using what you've learned in my courses. And I actually mean that. If you find what you've learned useful or if you've stumbled across some cool tips or tricks, want to show off something you've built, or just have a question, hit me up on Twitter @morten, because that's my name, I will answer you.
Now all that's left for me to say is, (foreign), go get Sassy with your WordPress themes and I'll see you in the next course.
Note: This course doesn't teach Sass itself. To learn more about the language, watch CSS with LESS and Sass.
