Présentation de l'éditeur

In Detail

The CSS preprocessor, Sass, is becoming the de-facto standard for producing cross-browser CSS more maintainable and with more ease. It supercharges CSS with features that make previously difficult and time-consuming tasks trivial. This book concentrates on distilling the techniques in a straightforward manner making it accessible to all, even to those that only know HTML and CSS.

Written by the author of the bestselling "Responsive Web Design with HTML5 and CSS3", Sass and Compass for Designers will explain everything you need to get Sass and Compass installed, mastered, and making your life easier. There will be no perplexing terminology or baffling syntax left unexplained. We'll get you set up and then build a site together, step by step, using the incredible power of Sass and Compass.

We will start with a completely unstyled HTML document and build a responsive Sass and Compass powered website step by step.

Sass and Compass make CSS easy. You'll learn how to manipulate color in the stylesheet with a single command, create responsive grids with ease, automatically create image sprites, and create CSS3 powered rules that work across all modern browsers.

"Sass and Compass for Designers" explains how to produce great CSS easier than ever before.


A step-by-step tutorial guide, taking you through how to build a responsive Sass and Compass powered website.

Who this book is for

If you understand HTML and CSS, this book is all you need to take your code to the next level with Sass and Compass. No prior understanding of CSS preprocessors or programming conventions is needed.

Ben Frain

Ben Frain has been a frontend web designer and developer since 1996. He also works as a technology journalist, contributing regularly to a number of diverse publications on the Mac platform, consumer technology, website design, and the aviation industry.

Before that, he worked as an underrated (and modest) TV actor, having graduated from Salford University with a degree in Media and Performance. He has written four equally underrated (his opinion) screenplays and still harbors the (fading) belief he might sell one. Outside of work he enjoys simple pleasures; playing indoor football whilst his body (and wife) still allows it, and wrestling with his son.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must have book for designers 16 mai 2013
Par unstuffed design - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As a designer,I've been slowly implementing Sass and Compass into my workflow so this book came out at just the right time. On my own, I understood the basics but felt intimidated by going further than just a couple simple variables to change colors and the such. After reading Ben's book, I now feel comfortable starting a project from the command line (yeah, I know right), setting up mixins and variables and even understand @if/@else statements. For me though, the chapter on setting up a responsive grid using the SUSY plug-in was worth the price of admission alone. Did I mention the section on using Compass to manage images and sprites? Yeah, he covers that too (and much more).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Conversational tone illuminates a confusing topic 29 juillet 2013
Par G. Chambers - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is an extremely useful guide to jump-starting your SASS and Compass odyssey. Written in a casual, conversational tone this book offers just the right amount of hand-holding for designers unfamiliar with (or intimidated by) command line terminals. It assumes a pretty thorough background in HTML and CSS, but that is to be expected with this topic. I bought the digital version through Google Play for reading on my Nexus10... it looks great.

Operating in a MS Windows environment I've have been frustrated in the past with on-line tutorials that were incapable of clearly describing the necessary steps for installing Rails, SASS and (finally) Compass. This book accomplishes that task with a good-natured attitude. One thing I discovered is that using the Ruby terminal is absolutely essential before you even begin to work through the SASS and Compass examples in the book.

I do have a couple of gripes. One area it falls short is that there is no instruction for those that are totally new to the command line terminal. One of the first instructions is to "navigate to your project with terminal so that you can command Compass to "watch" the folder. Huh? How the heck do I navigate with the terminal? I did find out but it took a Google search.

The other area is one that, unfortunately, is quite common with technical texts -- occasional typos that throw a speed bump at an already wobbly student. I was generally able to suss the intent of a poorly edited instruction, but those should not be there in the first place.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book. It's an instructive and enjoyable exploration of the nooks and crannies of an increasingly significant set of tools for web development.

I was always against the use of LESS and SASS in my workflow...didn't quite understand how it would benefit from them with the large team that I work with...figured it may be more of a learning curve that I was willing to decide on implementing for everyone else when they need to make a change. Then we started a new project and I was converting some balsamiq mock-ups over to code and thought I'd get this book to give it a try, since I was developing the styles without anyone else's input nor involvement.

Yes. It worked. Not only did it work, but I love the various mixins and how they can help generate a block of color-states based on one initial color declaration. This book had a nice flow to it and I've learned to reference it where needed. None the less, it was a good initial buy on the topic and doesn't conflict with the amount of googling I still do to make things happen.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sass and Compass kickstarter 25 août 2013
Par criscom - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I had been noodling around with Sass and Compass for a while, thinking that I was doing alright. Until I read Sass and Compass for Designers. In a clear and entertaining style, Ben Frain gave me not just a proper introduction to Sass and Compass but opened up, by using excellent examples coupled with clear cut explanations, new horizons on what I can achieve with Sass and Compass.

To just give one example, the way he explains Sass mixins and image sprites, walking the reader through the code step by step in a language that is aimed at the non-tech-non-programmer, is just brilliant. Had I refrained from writing mixins before, now I am fully into it and loving it. Of course, you could find all this information in the internet. But here you have it boiled down to what is essential.

This unusual combination of an entertaining style (go read his blog, it's just as good), a profound knowledge of both the technical as well as the practical side of Sass and Compass development and clear and easy explanations of code, IHO, is Ben's biggest achievement with this book. This book both gave me a lot of background as well as hands-on information that I could immediately apply to my projects. And, last not least, it was a great reading experience, too. A must for everyone seriously into Webdesign.

If you've been wanting to learn Sass for web development, but have been turned off by books and tutorials geared mostly toward programmers, then this is the book for you. Ben Frain gives you wonderfully human advice on crafting your own pre-processor workflow, including details and clear examples that will quickly have you styling sites using Sass and Compass. Along the way, you'll learn important nuggets about CSS3 in general and how Sass and Compass can not only improve your work as a front-end developer, but also save you enough time to finally enjoy your weekends. Particularly well done are chapters on using Sass and Compass to control color choices. I would recommend this book to designers, of course, as the title indicates, but also to any developer looking for guidance within context. Frain explains the complex in clear detail without dumbing things down. Pick up a copy today! The best book on Sass and Compass I've found so far, bar none.
