SCSS VS. INDENTED SYNTAX
Is SCSS different from indented syntax enough that they should have separate tags?
From the SASS documentation:
There are two syntaxes available for Sass. The first, known as SCSS (Sassy CSS) and used throughout this reference, is an extension of the syntax of CSS3. This means that every valid CSS3 stylesheet is a valid SCSS file with the same meaning. In addition, SCSS understands most CSS hacks and vendor-specific syntax, such as IE’s old filter syntax. This syntax is enhanced with the Sass features described below. Files using this syntax have the .scss extension.
The second and older syntax, known as the indented syntax (or sometimes just “Sass”), provides a more concise way of writing CSS. It uses indentation rather than brackets to indicate nesting of selectors, and newlines rather than semicolons to separate properties. Some people find this to be easier to read and quicker to write than SCSS. The indented syntax has all the same features, although some of them have slightly different syntax; this is described in the indented syntax reference. Files using this syntax have the .sass extension.
Information Taken from SASS Documentation
There is a good debate going on, on this question:
Sass is the name of the CSS preprocessor, which has 2 syntaxes: scss and sass. There's no reason to have an scss tag. – cimmanon 15 mins ago
it is a separate syntax stackoverflow.com/a/5654471/1214743 – Malachi 15 mins ago
@cimmanon I'm using the SCSS syntax. Isn't that a reason? – kleinfreund 15 mins ago
No. Look at the tag description for [sass]. It has nothing to do with the sass syntax. If you look over on SO, there is no scss tag, only an alias to sass (see: stackoverflow.com/tags/sass/info). – cimmanon 7 mins ago
is CSS different from CSS3? SCSS can be converted to SASS or indented syntax. they are totally different, and this isn't SO – Malachi 4 mins ago edit
@Malachi CSS3 is an addition to CSS. – kleinfreund 3 mins ago
and SASS 3 is an addition to SASS(2?) which uses the new Syntax. there is a difference – Malachi 2 mins ago edit
@Malachi I think you don't got cimmanon's point. The two syntaxes are both part of SASS. So there is no need for a SCSS tag, but rather a synonym to SASS. – kleinfreund 1 min ago
ok. .net encompasses asp.net and mvc.net are they the same? SASS encompasses indented Syntax and SCSS Syntax. they are separate and do different things – Malachi 7 secs ago edit
