CSS CSS to Sass Installing Sass and Setting up the Project Course Overview

When to use SASS?

When is it determined to use SASS? Could a a designer outright use SASS from the beginning of a project to style a page? Is it better to use it once the styling through CSS is done?

I use Sass every single time, on every single project, from the very beginning. There would be no point to go back and add Sass if the css is already done, as Sass will generate the css needed. It is just personal preference, but that's what I do.

Hi Benjamin,

For my own preferences I used SASS directly in my big projects. Projects that some team member will use as well. For my small project I used the standard CSS. As you progress in SASS Course you'll learn the difference of the two.

Again this is just my own preference. Hope it clarify your question :) just remember SASS and CSS is basically just the same :)
