Css Preprocessor

A CSS preprocessor is a scripting language that extends and enhances the capabilities of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). It improves maintainability, reduces repetition within code and ensures more readable syntax. These preprocessors are similar to HTML templating engines but are dedicated to style file compilation. Notable examples include Sass (Syntactically Awesome StyleSheets), LESS (Leaner Style Sheets) and Stylus, which offer variables, nesting rules, mixins for reusable styles and various mathematical operations among other features not supported by standard CSS. Preprocessors compile into regular CSS files before being sent to the browser for rendering on web pages.
