Child Themes and SCSS
Does anyone have any idea on why it seems (unless I'm making some kind of mistake somewhere..) like some Wordpress themes take to child theme and SCSS, while others do not?
I managed to get a child theme going using Sass on the Twenty-fifteen theme, but I have not been able to do the same on a handful of others themes. Some don't create the child themes at all, while others do, but won't let me override the main styles with Sass.
Thanks in advance:-)

Most WordPress themes do not use SASS/SCSS. You should look into grunt/gulp as a solution. You can set it up pretty easily. You could try using https://www.npmjs.com/package/grunt-sass .
Then I would reccomend setting up your gruntfile and node modules 1 layer outside of wordpress. You can have a sass folder and css folder in your theme. Then you can exclude the sass folder from getting deployed.
