Saving time with SASS
Well, most probably you type them by hand and that takes a major portion of the time. Not just that, what do you do when you need to replicate some design properties and use them again somewhere else in the design? If you are a web app designer/developer you face these problem more often.
That’s where SASS (Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets) comes in. What this nifty (Ruby based) tool does is, it lets you type fancy CSS. Ever wanted to use variables in CSS or inherit the properties of a selector without typing a full new selector? SASS lets you do just that and lots of more cool stuff! So if you don’t have SASS already in your workflow, you are definitely spending more time on your css than you should.
Here at Obscure we use this more than any other tool when creating CSS code. SASS lets you type fast, makes editing a lot easier, while improving and adding new styles gets even more fun. I recommend you install ruby and install the SASS gem and tinker with the options to see what all this beautiful piece of software can do to improve your CSS workflow.
