SCSS allows writing more advanced CSS code via a custom syntax that ads features not found in the native CSS standard.
The syntax is much simpler and much cleaner, making CSS more manageable and much more powerful.
SCSS comes with a built-in compiler for rendering the SCSS/SASS syntax in CSS.
SASS has been renamed to to SCSS since version 3.x and is responsible for the .scss file extension all developers got to know and love.
Here are some key features of "SCSS (former SASS)":
· Nest elements
· CSS 3 is supported
· Ruby 1.8.7 or higher
