SASS (Syntactically Awesome StyleSheets) is a meta-language on top of CSS that‘s used to describe the style of a document cleanly and structurally, with more power than flat CSS allows. Sass both provides a simpler, more elegant syntax for CSS and implements various features that are useful for creating manageable stylesheets.


  • Whitespace active
  • Well-formatted output
  • Elegant input
  • Feature-rich

Examples of SASS

Similar to flat CSS, selecting elements are done by the elements ID and or class name(s). Here is an example of SASS written with nested rules.

#main p
    :color #00ff00
    :width 97%

      :background-color #ff0000
      :color #000000

Compiles to:

  #main p {
    color: #00ff00;
    width: 97%; }
    #main p .redbox {
      background-color: #ff0000;
      color: #000000; }

For additional documentation on SASS, please visit The SASS Homepage.


  • To my knowledge, there currently are no themes on supporting this technology. I intend to release a SASS compatible version of Basic.
  • SASS requires the HAML RubyGem plugin to be installed. Mac OSX Leopard has native support for SASS (otherwise run $: gem install haml)
  • For installation instructions on installing Ruby/Haml on Mac OSX Tiger, please read: Building Ruby, Rails, LightTPD, and MySQL on Tiger
