Sass is a CSS pre-processor that extends CSS by adding features like variables, nested rules, mixins, imports, inheritance, built-in functions, and more.
It is designed to reduce repetition of CSS and save time, making it easier to maintain large and complex stylesheets.
Sass is completely compatible with all versions of CSS and can be used with HTML.
To get started with Sass, it is recommended to have a basic understanding of HTML and CSS.
Sass can be set up on a project by installing it and then using it to preprocess the CSS syntax.
There are two syntaxes for Sass: SCSS and indented syntax
SCSS is a superset of CSS, which means all valid CSS is also valid SCSS, while the indented syntax uses indentation instead of curly braces and semicolons.
Sass brings in the reusability feature of a programming language lacking in CSS, allowing developers to use variables and blocks of code that can be reused across the project, reducing the chances of mistakes and making it easier to make changes throughout the code
