What is a good SASS editor?

Looking for something that will populate the recommendations list and highlight syntax. I tried both brackets and sublime, but nothing seems happens.

Hi Jaycode!

I think there are packages/modules to make this possible in Sublime. Personally I use Visual Studio Code and there are plenty of extensions that makes the Sass syntax and highlightning work great.

I have a feeling Sublime have this too as it's a really popular editor, otherwise I would really recommend Visual Studio Code.

I hope that helps!


Thanks for the reply stjarnan . For some reason sublime isn't highlighting the syntax. I will search for extensions. I do have the Visual Studio Code, but unfortunately my free trial expired. Would prefer to stick with a free editor until I code professionally for a living :)

Many Thanks! I confused it with just Visual Studio. Names are very similar. Forgot to add the code. Testing it now :)

If you still aren't satisfied with your text editor I definitely suggest giving Atom a try. You can find the options you mentioned in the settings to toggle on and off at will, or you can tailor it to your taste with packages and themes.

I'm pretty new to development and Atom, but am unable to find how to link the .scss and .css files in Atom as shown here in Workspaces. Would you mind sharin any insight that may help?
