Using Compass midway through project

  • # February 10, 2013 at 6:28 am


    I am really eager to get into the world of preprocessing but was wondering whether it is worthwhile/possible to start using Compass and SASS midway through a website which has been using a standard css file?

    I don’t think there’s any reason not to start in middle. The preproccesor will amend your CSS file as needed. You may end up with a little bit of a mess in there, but I don’t think it will “break.”

    Nothing will break. You can write regular CSS in a .sass or .scss file without any problem.

    However you will probably need a little bit of time to write and replace your variables and mixins.
