SASS vs. SCSS

Educative Answers Team

SASS (Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets) is a pre-processing scripting language that is compiled and interpreted into CSS. SCSS (Sassy Cascading Style Sheets) was brought in as the main syntax for SASS, which builds on top of the CSS syntax. CSS is a subset of SCSS, i.e., all the features in CSS are available in SCSS in addition to the features of SASS.
