Is it okay to just use GUI tools like codekit and prepros for compiling SCSS to CSS? Do you guys use it?
I use CodeKit to compile LESS files to CSS. Actually, Codekit does a lot more… it also does JSLinting, compressing image files, automatic browser refresh (also has server pass-through capability and local css overrides), auto-prefixing, minification, uglification, etc. all in a single package.
I’ve also used Web Compiler extensions for Visual Studio IDE for C#/NET projects, but I find it buggy and Codekit works better/more reliably.
But then, I work for myself. No management to tell me what to use. I am the management. If you’ll be working somewhere for someone else, then you may have no choice but to use your employer’s tools/workflow and learn how to set up their config files. But personally, I’ve used Codekit since 2013 for all my clients.
Cool, glad to know this
