Supercharging my css with Scss


At least an attempt. 😄 While Sass is still quite new for me, I am getting to know it better and better these days. The language really helps me to maintain my css files and write them as efficient as possible.

For a long time I relied on frameworks from others to create all the prototypes in html and css. But during the use of the frameworks I often made tweaks or wrote a lot of additional css to fit my own preferences.

Along the way I developed my own vision on how I would like to write css and maintain this on a large scale. Being inspired mostly by the BEM methodology and the Tailwind concept. I am now collecting all the standard utility classes and their sass formats in a repository.

In this way, I am working on my css / scss skills and a stable base for all my prototypes. You can find it here:
