Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets
Starting from version 2.0 we also support another alternative to CSS – SASS and its newest version SCSS.
For now SASS support includes:
- Syntax highlighting
- Smart code folding based on indentation
- Comment/uncomment actions
- Dedicated colors page to customize default highlighting attributes
- Smart color-editor with gutters (see screenshot)
Note: Compilation of SASS is not supported via IDE, but it’s easily achieved via stand-alone compiler.
Here you can see SASS editor with smart code folding based on indentation.
The syntax highlighting attributes can be configured in File | Settings | Editor | Colors & Fonts | SASS.
You can also see color boxes on the gutters — these are exactly the colors used within your SASS file.
You can modify them either by editing plain SASS code or using our Color Edtor — just click the corresponding gutter!
Develop with SASS! Develop with pleasure!
