Transpiled Basscss Sass partials

This repository is provided as a convenience for users working within a Sass build process. Basscss is written in spec-compliant CSS, including some new features like custom media queries and custom properties, and is distributed across multiple modules.

If you have any choice in the matter, I recommend using a CSS postprocessor like cssnext instead of Sass.

Getting Started

npm install basscss-sass
bower install basscss-sass

Sass Tips

  • Never use @extend. @extend is an anti-pattern, and Basscss is not intended to work with this functionality in Sass.
  • Avoid Mixins Mixins lead to unnecessary complexity, are generally poorly understood, often lead to code bloat, and do not align with Basscss's design principles.
  • Avoid Nesting Selectors To maintain the composability of Basscss, avoid nesting selectors as much as possible.


The scss files in this repository are not source files. They are transpiled from their respective CSS modules using the css-scss module.

Do not edit the scss files in this repository.

If you've found an issue with the transpiler, file an issue on css-scss.

If you'd like to make modifications to a Basscss module, first, open an issue in the module's repository. Read the design principles and consider the implications of the change in the larger Basscss ecosystem. If a change does not follow the design principles, it will not be considered.

Feel free to fix typos and make copy suggestions for the readme, or to suggest fixes for the build process or tests in this repository.
