How to properly include an if statement inside a for loop in sass?


1 Answer


The reason it is not working is because you have compiler errors in your scss.



Compilation Error
Error: required parameters must precede optional parameters
        on line 170 of sass/c:\dev\workspace\app\tes\test.scss
>> @mixin links($text-dec: none, $color, $font-weight: null) {

solution - required params first

@mixin links($color, $text-dec: none, $font-weight: null)



Compilation Error
Error: You may not @extend an outer selector from within @media.
       You may only @extend selectors within the same directive.
       From "@extend %grid" on line 121 of sass/c:\dev\workspace\app\tes\test.scss
        on line 110 of sass/c:\dev\workspace\app\tes\test.scss
>> %grid {

Solution - extend within a mixin

@mixin test {
    @extend %grid;

.grid__col--#{$number}.theme__colors {
    @include test;
