Sass

Sass is a tool that falls into the category of a CSS preprocessor language. CSS preprocessor languages allow you to more easily write reusable, maintainable, and flexible CSS. They accomplish this by providing a syntax that allows you to be more expressive with the creation of your CSS, and then they convert that syntax into the plain old CSS that you would have normally written. In addition to making your CSS more readable and maintainable, another reason to use Sass in your F# web projects is because of the option for the use of significant whitespace rather than braces.

Note

Sass is not the only CSS preprocessor language option. Other popular options include LESS and Stylus. In the interest of space, I have chosen to focus only on Sass; however, I encourage you to also check out other options to determine which is best for you.
