Sass vs PreCSS: What are the differences?
What is Sass? Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets. Sass is an extension of CSS3, adding nested rules, variables, mixins, selector inheritance, and more. It's translated to well-formatted, standard CSS using the command line tool or a web-framework plugin.
What is PreCSS? Use Sass-like markup in your CSS. It combines Sass-like syntactical sugar — like variables, conditionals, and iterators — with emerging CSS features — like logical and custom properties, media query ranges, and image sets.
Sass and PreCSS can be primarily classified as "CSS Pre-processors / Extensions" tools.
Sass and PreCSS are both open source tools. Sass with 12.6K GitHub stars and 1.93K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than PreCSS with 1.54K GitHub stars and 83 GitHub forks.
