Recently I chose to move from vanilla CSS to the syntactically awesome stylesheeets and this has been a great step in my life. It’s like leaving a klingon which I’ve had as a girlfriend to date a human or vulcan :)
Team-Sass provided a style guide for SASS concerning how we can name our variables for colors. A basic variable naming should be as it is on http://sass-lang.com/styleguide/color/ where all the colors have their names as variables like so:
$hopbush: #c69 $bouquet: #b37399 $venus: #998099 $patina: #699 $nebula: #d2e1dd $dawn-pink: #f2ece4 $wafer: #e1d7d2 $iron: #dadbdf $regent-grey: #808c99 $pale-sky: #6b717f $midnight-blue: #036 $light-green: #98cbad
One of SASS awesome features that I cherish besides the wonders of mixins, inheritance, loops, and the other most lauded features of SASS is its rgba().
It’s syntax is
This way, it’s not limited to just rgb() values for the colors but it converts even hexadecimal colors to RGB for its RGB values
I think everyone that’s not taking advantage of what these pre-processors have to offer is missing out on a lot
