HTML preprocessors and partials
Hey everone! At the moment, I'm working at my very first BIG project.Lately all I've been doing, were simple static web pages, but these days I'm looking for environment that is going to give me easy time when maintaining stuff.I'm using SASS with SMACSS and my CSS is organized, but my HTML is literally huge.Is there any way to break that document in smaller partials, like I would do with SASS partials? Thanks

On the modern web, you usually do that within a framework that uses the Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern.
Basically, you use a template language to create "views" consisting of partial HTML files and then inject data into them.
If you know PHP, check out the Building Websites With PHP course. It shows a simple project using the Slim framework with the Twig template language.
