Description

In case you're unaware, CSS by itself is not very dynamic. There's no support for variables and functions, and dealing with vendor prefixes can be a nightmare! In this course, Improving CSS with Stylus, you'll learn how Stylus solves all of this and more. You can declare variables, functions, mixins, and even improve the visibility of your CSS without having to include colons, semi-colons, and braces. First, you're going to learn how to integrate Stylus within your development environment. Then, you will take a close look at Stylus from a beginner's level all the way up to an advanced level. Finally, you will create your very own project so that you can gain meaningful experience by using Stylus. After watching this course, you'll be ready to starting using Stylus to improve your workflow.

Hi everyone, my name is Gary Simon, welcome to my course, Improving CSS with Stylus. I've been a freelance designer for the last 15 years and I've worked with countless clients on a wide variety of projects.

What if I told you that you could speed up your workflow, considerably, just by changing the way you write your CSS? With Stylus, you can do exactly that. Stylus is a CSS preprocessor, that offers a number of time saving features and functionality when writing CSS.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Integrating Stylus in your Workflow
  • Understanding Stylus Basics
  • Variables & Mixins
  • Functions & Conditionals and much more
By the end of the course, you will have a solid understanding of how to utilize this great CSS preprocessor.

I hope you'll join me on this journey to Improving CSS with Stylus at pluralsight.
