Getting Sassy with CSS

Note: this is an archived site. The current site can be found at http://drupalcampla.com.

The past couple of years have seen a lot of changes in the way we handle design, user experience and css.

We now have the ability to take control over our stylesheets with true awesomeness that includes:

  • preprocessing
  • nested rules
  • variables and mixins
  • inheritance
  • math!
  • and more!

With the advent of responsive design, SCSS is critical to enabling themers to keep their stylesheets clean, logical and, most importantly, maintainable.

This session will introduce Sass/SCSS, and show you how to get started. It is meant for people who are comfortable with CSS but haven't yet taken the next step of using SCSS in a Drupal theme.

Feel free to use the comments to request specific topics, as well, as I am happy to craft the session for the people who plan to attend!

I would like to learn how to use nesting in a more general way. Many times overdoing nesting can become an issue as one may end up with css rules that are too specific to page elements. I'd love to hear our take on this.
