Any plans to support sass as well as less?1 user found helpful
I do prefer Sass over Less, it's more powerful and it appears to have more activity in terms of libraries and future development. Less is still great, but i'm a bit more confident with the future of Sass.
My guess though is that Less's PHP compiler is perhaps a bit easier to integrate than the PHP version of the Sass compiler, so it could come down more to technical limitations than pre-processor choice. I reckon it might get a bit messy when you need to include Compass and other libraries, whereas I think Less would be more straightforward. (I know there is a decent PHP SCSS compiler out there though)
Personally if I ever do look to build a heavily configurable theme that uses Sass, I'd probably roll my own dashboard page to make the edits and worry about what is needed to get that to work for Sass then. Editing colours is one thing, but I also like the idea of being able to turn things on and off, change sizes, etc.
So I don't think we'll see Sass integrated anytime soon, while Less is much more straightforward.
but my question today is the same:
is 5.7 supporting sass? are there any themes in sass (scss)?
how would i convert the elemental less int sass?
thanks for any information.
There is a Sass and Less section on this page that covers converting Sass to Less manually and with automated tasks.
thank you for the feedback.
converting less to scss is no option. client requires bootstrap scss because their other sites run on scss.
is it possible to build a pure sass concrete5 theme (v.5.74) ?
Otherwise you just use the compiled css and who cares what it was compiled with.
It allows the developers to use any preprocessor there is to write their CSS. And it all works within concrete5 without any external tools. It also allows developers to use preprocessors for JS in case they need to use them (e.g. CoffeeScript).
We would love to hear some feedback on this package! Possible bug reports can be directly reported into the GitHub repository's issues.
We are also hoping to get these features integrated into the core. If you have some thoughts on this, feel free to share them at this related GitHub issue:
One question though, the readme says:
"This will reference three CSS files (specified above) within your theme's css folder, preprocess them and combine them into a single CSS file that is downloaded by the client.".
