Bourbon – A comprehensive library of sass mixins

CSS - Reference / Added on September 15, 2012 / Add to favorites

Bourbon is a comprehensive library of sass mixins that are designed to be simple and easy to use. No configuration required. The mixins aim to be as vanilla as possible, meaning they should be as close to the original CSS syntax as possible.
The mixins contain vendor specific prefixes for all CSS3 properties for support amongst modern browsers. The prefixes also ensure graceful degradation for older browsers that support only CSS3 prefixed properties. Bourbon uses SCSS syntax.

  • I am wondering.. Why use Bourbon over Compass?
    They seem to overlap, and Compass seems to be more widely used.
    I am using Compass, and can’t really see where Bourbon fits into that.
    Or, am I missing something? ๐Ÿ™‚
    Bourbon looks really nice, though.

  • Like many, I use the excellent LiveReload application to streamline development. Using Sass with LiveReload is a piece of cake and I donโ€™t have to use the command line to start my work.
