Compass is an open-source CSS Authoring Framework and Compass uses Sass. Sass is an extension of CSS3 that adds nested rules, variables, mixins, selector inheritance, and more. Sass generates well formatted CSS and makes stylesheets easier to organize and maintain. Sass supercharges CSS with features that make previously difficult and time-consuming tasks trivial.

Sass and Compass for Designers will teach readers how to install Sass and Compass and maintain Sass and Compass powered projects, as well as how to build a site using the incredible power of Sass and Compass.

The book will start readers off with a completely unstyled HTML document, showing them step by step how to build a responsive Sass and Compass powered website. It then moves deeper into how to manipulate color in the stylesheet with a single command, create responsive grids with ease, automatically create image sprites, and create CSS3 powered rules that work across all modern browsers.
