No, not at all. SASS must be installed only on your development machine (the computer you write the code on: e.g., the same computer you installed your code editor on). It compiles to regular CSS, and that is what goes on your website. Your server need never know where it came from.

This describes SASS exactly —the only difference is that it’s its own program, instead of specifically being part of a code editor.

WELL, I better take a better look at that then. Slight oversight on my behalf sorry. haha

I always thought SASS was like a php script, where you would upload .sass/ .scss to the server which would process it and cache the “compiled” .css.

I best take a better look at these tools.

Would you consider SASS software just a “converter” which takes .sass and converts to .css to then be uploaded?
