Do you still need Sass in 2023?


With so many new features being added to CSS in the past couple years, is Sass still needed in 2023? Is it time to remove Sass from your build process? What can native CSS and PostCSS do that can replace Sass functionality?

In this session, I will discuss an overview of new CSS features that replace functionality in Sass:

  • CSS custom properties
  • Nesting
  • New color functions

I will also go over some PostCSS plugins that replicate Sass functionality:

  • Custom media
  • Imports
  • Mixins

Lastly, I will discuss when you might not want to replace Sass *just yet* and how you can use Sass AND native CSS together to take advantage of your existing build process. 

It’s an exciting time to be a CSS developer and the perfect time to learn more about what CSS can do natively without using Sass.
