Haml, Sass

Chris Eppstein Joins Sass Team

Posted December 29, 2008

It’s been too long since I’ve made a post here. I’ve actually had lots of ideas floating around in my head, but they all seemed too small to make a good first-post-in-a-while. I’ve decided that doesn’t matter, so I’m just going to start writing small posts as ideas hit me.

The first one, this one, is an announcement that I’ve been meaning to make. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone paying attention to the Haml lists: Chris Eppstein is now a member of the Sass core team.

Chris has been doing a lot of really cool stuff with Sass recently. He’s the author of the Compass framework, the first Sass framework (as far as I know) which contains ports of the Blueprint and YUI CSS libraries as well as its own core code, all Sassified to make it more modular, semantic, and powerful than the source frameworks. He’s been pushing the boundaries of Sass as a language and in the process helping to form what will become Sass 2.2 (more on that in a future post).
