Ich bin auf Arbeit ja nicht nur Full Stack #Webdev, sondern auch Teamlead. Eine meiner Aufgaben (die ich mir selbst gegeben habe) ist, meinem Team teils die Fundamentals von Dingen zu erklären.

Einfach weil heutzutage (Durch Bootcamps, Tutorials und sonst was) viele in den Beruf gehen und direkt mit #Sass, #Symfony / #Laravel, #Vue / #React etc. anfangen. Ohne #CSS, #PHP, #HTML und #JavaScript im Kern richtig kennenzulernen.

Und jedes Mal, wenn ich eine solche Session hinter mir habe, fühle ich mich einfach gut. Meist egal wie es mir vorher ging, danach ist einfach eine positive Grundstimmung in mir.

Wenn ich irgendwann mal keine Lust mehr habe, selbst beruflich als Webdev zu arbeiten, werde ich definitiv versuchen irgendwo als Lehrkraft reinzukommen. Ich kann mir echt vorstellen, dass das etwas ist, mit dem ich glücklich und alt werden könnte.

Consejo rápido de SASS: Utiliza @use en lugar de @import, ya que se encuentra descontinuado y está desaconsejado por los propios desarrolladores. Se debe a que utilizar @import produce colisiones entre las variables porque todo se vuelve global, incluyendo funciones y mixins.

"Is it time to Drop #Sass ?" - yes, but only if you don't use some of its best features (maps, arrays, functions & loops). I use --vars in every project now but reports of Sass' death are greatly exaggerated (via @cferdinandi)

I’ve amazed myself with the two little JavaScript tools I’ve written in the last couple of weeks.

1: using plop to create a component scaffolding tool to make sure new components have the correct set of files and folder structure

2: a bespoke little thing that looks at an existing Sass file and generates a design tokens json file to help with retrofitting.

A good overview of how the new native #CSS #nesting feature differs from the nesting logic in #sass and why it generates significantly different results.

And because it fits so well thematically, here again a very good explanation of how the `:is()` selector actually works.

Finally, got my #sass stylesheets working in my #angular project - one of the issues was cause by maps and functions -
so this was ok $themeColors("danger"),
but lighten($themeColors("danger"), 5%) would blow up.

changed to use map-get($theme-colors, "danger").

There is some tweaking still to be done, because of moving from bootstrap 4 to 5, but at least it's compiling.

Overall, CSS has gotten SOOOO much better to work with - once nesting is fully rolled-out, I could probably leave Sass behind for most instances... or maybe not. IDK, still like mixins 🙃

I actually like writing web server based software, I even like doing HTML based UIs. What I really dislike is CSS, by all its power it's a trainwreck to happen.
SASS and LESS and the rest of the tools only make it fractionally better and they add another lever of fuckery to the mix.
Sometimes I look back at the time when notepad was enough to build a website — I can do without table layouts, though (and spacer.gif).

Everyone here is sassy today. The Teen was commenting on how I got my sass from Vegan Lawyer GF (she is quite sassy) and I said my sass is more mature, more refined sass. He missheard and asked "mortified sass? whats that? Is that like when a Bard rolls a nat. 20 and sarcasms them to death? "

No, its more like when you point to the Ogre's terrible feet and go WHAT ARE THOOOOOOOOSE? And he runs away embarrassed.

Mortified Sass would be a great band name.

I'm not saying that #jquery is bad, or that you should stop using it, or remove it from your app. It was instrumental in my initial #javascript training, and sometimes it's just easier to use than #vanillajs.

What I _am_ saying, however, is that #javascript has matured since then, and I want to have fewer dependencies in my projects these days.

Thus, I'm planning to eradicate it from anything I work on if I can.

#css got better, too, so I'm probably gonna stop using #sass so much, as well.

I'm in a next context, where the generated css files (from sass) for some reason get some spaces in custom properties removed (--hs-primary: 150 17% becomes --hs-primary: 15017%) and some calc() values also get plus signs removed (1.25rem + 4vh becomes 1.25em4vh) so the entire sites breaks.

I have no idea what to do here. It all works locally and its a private project, I can't even give access to the code. #nextjs #sass #css #react

There's one important thing you should know about the new CSS Nesting capability. It differs from SCSS in an important and admittedly a little bit annoying way. That said the workaround is very easy.

#CSS #webdev #nesting #scss #sass

  CSS Nesting will work very similar to SCSS but with 1 very important difference. 

/* The code below will work. */
article {
  .second-paragraph {
    color: red;
/* The code below won't work.*/
article {
  p {
    color: blue;
  For technical reasons element selectors can't be the item in a child selector. I don't know all the reasons but likely it has to do with CSS properties beig written similarly, and generating the CSSOM. Backward compatibility of CSS, etc.

The solution - honestly is very easy and will make sense if you've used SCSS.

article {
  & p {
    color: rebeccapurple;

/* That also let's you do intersting things like this */

article {
    /* which means article.featured */
  & p {
    color: rebeccapurple;

Saw this pixel heart ❤️ on #CodePen, done with ~80 #HTML elements & ~20 #CSS declarations.

So I redid it with a single div and 7 CSS declarations, including layout & prettifying

For anyone wondering what the point of still using #Sass is... well, situations like this where it really helps to be able to generate gradients in a loop.

So, we now have CSS custom properties (variables).

CSS nesting is soon to come.

We even have <details> <summary> for show hide toggling content.

We have flex box and grid for layouts.

They are almost or soon to be natively supported in all modern browsers.

Do we really need SASS?

When vanilla CSS can do so much, why people make it complicated?

So it's been a few days since I've started using #css cascade layers. Now I am wondering if there are some niceties when it comes to integration with #sass, especially when it comes to modules.

sass module @use have to appear first in a file, so now I have been putting a _layer-order.scss there and @use that. But I wonder if there is a cleaner way.

Ideally, I wouldn't have to necessarily wrap my sass modules code in a @layer at all but instead do that wherever they are @use'd.

Thank you, Angie.

That's... eye-opening.

Never worked with #Sass, #Stylus etc. so #Less familiar with the idea of nesting #CSS #selectors.

Honestly... struggling to see why selector nesting is so popular. Unnested selectors seem like they have the greatest clarity & legibility and... they don't feel verbose (?)

Beyond that, Option 3 looks the best of the options showcased (so it's a relief that this option has come out dramatically more popular than the other two).

I now typically create my own set of SASS files (core, colors, sizes, etc.) and then create a site.sass where I import them all. In VS2022 I setup my compile and minimisation and voila, life is reasonably easy. (the new CSS vars are similar).

Have just been reading the instructions for a css library called Bulma that a (highly respected) friend is raving about. May be something there... Will I or wont I have a go is the question...

The folks working on the #CSS specs are still deliberating over the best way to handle nesting. And that's fine and right and good.

But as someone who's used the PostCSS plugin for nesting which is essentially "Option 3" (see below) and is closest to #Sass nesting without being quite that simple, I think that's clearly the right way to go and works quite well.

I saw in a #CssWg github thread a while ago, about #css cascade layers, that it's no longer a strain on performance to use `@import`, but I can't find it. Plus, has someone tried that out? What happens, when each component has its own CSS file that gets imported? With layers, scoping & container queries, I am starting to loose the necessity for #SASS, but I am still heavily relying on it for splitting my code, to get a sense of component-level-css.
