Stucture Your Sass - Video Available

The video for this session is available at using this link There may be dropouts in the video - it is not your computer.

UPDATE: Thanks everyone for coming and for the great questions! Slides now available at:

So you've heard of SASS, maybe you're using it already. Look how pretty it makes your code! That is until you get a list, in a block, that comes from a view, that also uses some mixins and a media query. How does the SASS code structure fit in with your Drupal theme? What if you want to use your own grid? Should you put those rules in a separate stylesheet or maybe a partial? (Wait, what's a partial??)

This session will cover:

  • How to most effectively use SASS variables, mixins, extends, partials, and more
  • An intro to how the popular Zen base theme uses SASS out-of-the-box
  • How to use SASS to make your theme (and your design!) more semantic
  • An intro to SMACSS (Scalable and Modular Architecture for CSS)
  • How to easily go from prototype to theme, without duplicating your work

And will raise even more questions, such as:

  • Where did all these media queries come from? And..
  • Where did my line numbers go and how do I get them back?!

The target audience is proficient in CSS and interested in making the most out of the SASS (Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets) for their next Drupal theme or project.
