Sass Workflow

Hi all,

Now I'm just about to finish the great new Sass Course, Sass Basics. And I thought it was high time I got my hands dirty and started to apply what I've learned to a mini project. Just a small project to produce a landing page for one of my clients.

So I went in straight away and started writing some variables and mixins to try and make some organised code.

Now I struggle all the time to retain concepts I've learned, which in itself is not the same was not learning. Eventually, I just decided to write vanilla CSS into my Sass file and then mess around converting the CSS into Sass.

But I'm not sure what the best workflow actually is.

  • Should I write CSS and the refactor?
  • Write Sass code straight away?
  • Or does it simply depend on the project you're working on?

Thanks :)
