Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

JavaScript

Babel is required to process package imports. If you need a different preprocessor remove all packages first.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

                %h1 Rainbow with Sass & Compass

%h2 My Rainbow:

.my-rainbow

%p
  For a website, I wanted to make a reusable mixin
  that uses CSS background gradients to create a
  colour stripe effect. My version was hard-coded to
  take 8 colour values. It also was pretty verbose.
  Finally, it only allowed stripes to go from left
  to right.

%p
  I knew it could be done much better, so I
  %a(href="https://twitter.com/jina/status/225811628338323458") tweeted out a request
  for a Sass expert to show me a better way to write
  my mixin.
%p
  Shortly after I tweeted that, I received an
  %a(href="https://twitter.com/eriiicam/status/225830655622254592") amazing contribution
  from @eriiicam. I was amazed at what Sass is
  capable of doing. They look identical, but with his
  improvements, I can give it as many colours as I
  want, and I can have the stripes go in whichever
  direction I want. It's also not verbose like mine was.

  A huge thanks goes to Eric for his help on this.
  I thought it was so cool that I wanted to share it
  here. While I posted the idea for the mixin, I want 
  to stress that Eric did the Sass Function. I hope 
  you find it as helpful as I did.:)
