Sass as well as SCSS are two terms we hear in the discussions quite commonly when we consider custom website development in general. When we take the term to an extended debate, most of the people do not have a clear idea of both these terms. 

Here is an attempt to explain both terms with considerable amount of clarity, and state the difference between the two. It is worthy to go into the history of development of both terms for better understanding. 


When we talk about Sass as a language, in full, we should identify its parent language, Haml, a language with semi-colons and was a more free flowing one without definite indentation. It was a collective effort of Ruby developers. Sass, initially was quite distanced from usual CSS. The sign used to mention Variable (!), and the one used to indicate the assignment(=) are instances to the point. 


The Syntax of Sass was varied, and bit complicated till the release of the version 3.0 in May 2010. This new syntax having completely changed codes is named as SCSS. (Sassy CSS). The aim behind developing SCSS from an unfixed thing like Sass was to make a syntax which resemble closely to CSS,  Hence SCSS as a syntax resembles more closer to the CSS with Variables mentioned in ($), and assignment signs changed to(:).   

Merits of Sass Syntax

Even if the Sass syntax looks disarranged, it is a concise one. All developers will find it easy to type. A major benefit programmers enjoy while programming with Sass is that they do not have to type plenty of braces as well as semi-colons to accomplish the tasks. Single characters like = and + play a big role in completing the tasks. 

Sass syntax ensures clean coding, for it confides more on clean coding. A small change in the “indent” can disturb the flow of entire codes. Developers need to be careful while programming with Sass, for a small change in the Indenting make lead to undesired results. Clean coding serves as a merit, but developers should be vigilant while dealing with nested codes in Sass. 

Merits of SCSS Syntax 

SCSS is typical CSS with a few valuable additions. It makes programming so easy for the beginners. The starters do not have to look into Sass for inspiration. They can just trigger the task with the basic knowledge of CSS. The codes are plain, as well as easily readable,hence the beginners find it simple to work with. 

You will find it interesting that every plugins as well as tools we use in Saas are created using SCSS. SCSS having a high amount of CSS flexibility is in trend right now, and is more used that older SCSS. 


Developers always have their own preferences in the selection of syntax.  These days most of them choose SCSS over Sass. Sass codes are clean, but SCSS is more CSS compatible and easy to work. The intended syntax, Sass is losing its luster day by day, for everything in Saas is developed using SCSS  and only SCSS is currently available for custom website development, and other purposes.
