    I have a project where depending on the page the color theme (monochromatic) changes. A class is applied to the body indicating the color scheme.

    I’m working in SCSS and and I can’t help but feel I could be doing this more efficiently, but can’t quite figure out how.

    I created a simple example on illustrating my current SCSS workflow.

    Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated.


    Learn to love mixins and placeholders. They’re what allow you to DRY up your Sass / Scss wherever possible.

    I forked your pen and wrote a super simple mixin at the top. There’s probably better ways of doing it / more optimizations you could make so tinker around.

    Thanks. I never knew about using “.#{$class}” in a mixin. That’s helpful. It makes my SCSS considerably more dry that’s for sure. I’m going to have to play with that. Thanks for the feedback and fork.
