Hugo Giraudel shares his journey of building SassyLists. SassyLists is a toolbox providing almost 40 functions to help working with Sass lists. The Sass default list API is very light therefore you might need some extra functions, especially if you are building a Sass framework or a robust grid system.
Mixins are one of the most powerful features of Sass. Mixins allow for efficient and clean code repetitions as well as an easy way to adjust your code with ease. If you are using Sass in your development workflow, no doubt you are using some of the mixins that I have covered below but some might also be new and helpful.
During a discussion a few weeks ago with an amazing front-end developer I was blown away that they hadn’t even given CSS preprocessing a go. I was bamboozled.
If you get overwhelmed with all these new fandangle ‘things’ people are talking about, be mindful that you don’t necessarily have to adopt them. Having a basic understanding and awareness of what they do is all you really need to know. If the ‘thing’ really fits into your development workflow, then it’s a win. Dedicating more time to really learn and adopt it should be a no brainer. If it doesn’t, then at least you have the peace of mind that you’re not doing things in a inefficient manner.
