CSS preprocessors are (mostly) a waste of time
LESS and SASS are supposedly some hot shit, letting you do some fancy JS-like logic straight from your CSS. But is it really worth the fuss?
Some thoughts I posted today on our company blog:
When you factor in all the time spent becoming proficient in these, reconfiguring your workflow to incorporate them, getting your clients and freelance developers bought in and integrated, actually building the preprocessor-specific logic, and then the extra care needed to reverse-engineer the preprocessor-generated CSS during testing, I seriously doubt most people using them are actually saving any net time.
Anyone have thoughts on this?
