Sass (Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets) is a CSS preprocessor scripting language that is interpreted or compiled into Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). SassScript is the script language itself. It allows for things like variables, nesting of rules, inline imports, and more. This makes writing stylesheets in Sass faster and more efficient because it removes redundancy with improved maintainability and readability. Libraries have been developed to allow mixins, functions, loops and other typical programming constructs from languages like JavaScript. These features enable front-end developers to create scalable stylesheets for large projects while keeping the code base maintainable.
