CSS Modular CSS with Sass Sass Grid System Building the Grid Container

Semantic Grid Layout

I have been trying to make the grid layout semantic so that I do not have to use class names like .grid__col--2 in the html markup. I have tried @include .grid__col--2 but this does not work. Help would be appreciated muchly.

Code below...

First up, it would be .grid__col--2 (two underscores between grid and col in the class name), but you can only include mixins, etc.

If you want to use the same styles as an existing rule in the SASS, use extend.

Here's another article that explains the concept well: The Extend Concept

Or if you want to use a framework of some sort, do a search for 'semantic framework'. There's tons of them, and surely one that would suit your needs.

Thanks Guys. I played about with this last night and created @mixins that now work for this.
