GoodTimes Why Sass in 2023? I see a lot of projects already moving from Sass to clean, vanilla CSS, and it's a bit weird to see you moving from one outdated thing to another.
The current LESS prepocessor backend library has been abandoned and is holding the software down, and will at some point just stop working, there are no
LESS package alternatives, so we have to move to something similar but maintained. There are well-maintained SCSS packages as far as I remember seeing.
Why not vanilla CSS?: That would be our preference, and we're still considering it, but there are simple features such as mixins and nesting that would be lost, which we value.
We're also considering alternative solutions that would allow us to only have the minimal features that we'd like only (like nesting and mixins), but as we haven't started looking into this in more depth, we don't know yet.
