The CSS pre-processor Sass has been around for almost a decade and has grown quite a bit since early beginnings. It’s now one of the preferred methods for writing CSS code to compile and run smoothly.
But those who’ve never tried to learn Sass are likely to be a bit intimidated. While it is general CSS, there’s a lot of terminal commands for installing & compiling the source. Where’s the best place to get started?
A developer named Hugo Giraudel created the very handy Sass Guidelines website which acts like a “best practices” guide for Sass/SCSS. It’s completely free to use as a teaching tool or reference for your work.
This is easily one of the best guides for anyone to learn Sass from anywhere in the world. It offers multiple languages including Czech, German, Danish, Russian… it’s a pretty long list.
You’ll learn everything from the history of Sass/SCSS to general syntax tips & proper naming conventions. The guide also covers typical design techniques like responsive layouts & custom mixins.
Overall Sass Guidelines should be your go-to source for learning Sass/SCSS. Whether you already have some knowledge or know almost nothing about Sass, you’ll be able to pick up all the fundamentals and use them with best practices in mind.
