Switch to Sass

Published: Oct 13th, 2020

This is part of Joyful Rails, a list of recommendations to make developing your Rails app more productive and joyful.

In this article, we are talking about switching to Sass.


I recommend making the switch before investing any significant effort into your CSS (cascading stylesheets).


Sass is a superset of CSS that makes writing stylesheets easier and more pleasant.


Sass is installed by default so all you need to do is change the file extension.

git mv app/assets/stylesheets/application.{css,scss}
