Sass: Sass (Syntactically Awesome StyleSheets) is a CSS preprocessor that allows you to use variables, nested rules, mixins, and functions in your CSS. It is a scripting language that extends the capabilities of CSS and makes it easier to write and maintain large stylesheets. Sass code is written in a file with a .sass or .scss extension, and then it is compiled into standard CSS, which can be interpreted by web browsers. The main advantage of using Sass is that it makes it easier to write and maintain large and complex stylesheets, by providing a more structured and organized way to write CSS.

Example:

CSS




// Define a variable for the primary color
$primary-color: blue;
  
// Define a mixin for creating rounded corners
@mixin rounded-corners($radius) {
  border-radius: $radius;
  -webkit-border-radius: $radius;
  -moz-border-radius: $radius;
}
  
// Use the variable and mixin in a nested rule
.button {
  background-color: $primary-color;
  color: white;
  padding: 10px 20px;
    
  &:hover {
    cursor: pointer;
  }
    
  .icon {
    float: left;
    @include rounded-corners(5px);
  }
}


Output:

.button {
    background-color: blue;
    color: white;
    padding: 10px 20px;
    }
.button:hover {
    cursor: pointer; 
    }
.button .icon {
    float: left;
    border-radius: 5px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
    -moz-border-radius: 5px; 
    }

Sass Script: SassScript is the scripting language used in Sass files. It is a scripting language that’s used within the Sass code. It allows you to use variables, mathematical operations, and functions to write dynamic stylesheets. SassScript is used to define variables and perform calculations, which can then be used in the Sass code.SassScript is a powerful feature that allows you to write more efficient and dynamic CSS. It can be used in combination with Sass preprocessor, to make styling more efficient and maintainable.

Example:

CSS




$primary-color: #4d4d4d;
$secondary-color: #333333;
  
.container {
  width: 80%;
  margin: 0 auto;
  padding: 20px;
  
  h1 {
    color: $primary-color;
  }
  
  p {
    color: $secondary-color;
    font-size: 14px;
  }
}


Output:

.container {
  width: 80%;
  margin: 0 auto;
  padding: 20px;
}
.container h1 {
  color: #4d4d4d;
}
.container p {
  color: #333333;
  font-size: 14px;
}

Difference Between Sass and SassScript:

Sass SassScript
Sass is a CSS pre-processor that extends the capabilities of CSS, allowing developers to use variables, nested rules, mixins, and other features. SassScript is the scripting language used within Sass to provide the additional functionality.
 Sass uses a .sass file extension, and uses indentation rather than braces to indicate nesting. SassScript uses a similar syntax to JavaScript, with variables and operators such as “+” and “-“
 Sass is used to pre-process and compile CSS stylesheets.  SassScript is used to provide additional functionality within Sass, such as variables and mixins.
