what is the big deal about this sass/compass thing.. All I see is a tool that generates css styles. Why do we need to be advised to use it?
Tomorrow a "supersasscompass on rails with active record support and orm" will come up, then what? we should all go ahead and jump into something that just generates css styles?
As long as it not supported by the browsers and it requires compiling to run.. it should not be recommended as it is right now, there are many people out there that will take your advice and invest time and money into learning something that they may not have to..
There is a difference in using library like extjs and learning the syntax of tools like compass.
Dont understand me wrong, I see the idea of tools like compass and how they ease mainly the interoperability between browsers but still I dont see why it should be recommended to developers, we can decide to use or not to use it i think.
