Compiling Sass

Compiling Sass is the process of converting your Sass code into standard CSS code that can be understood by web browsers. There are several ways to compile Sass code, including using a command-line tool, a desktop application, or an online service.

Here's a simple example of how to compile Sass code using a command-line tool:

1. Install Sass: First, you need to install Sass on your computer. You can do this by running the following command in your terminal or command prompt:

npm install -g sass

2. Write your Sass code: Next, you need to write your Sass code in a file with a `.scss` or `.sass` extension. For example, you might have a file called `styles.scss` with the following code:

$primary-color: #007bff;

body {
  background-color: $primary-color;

h1 {
  color: $primary-color;

3. Compile your Sass code: Once you've written your Sass code, you can compile it into CSS code using the `sass` command. For example, you might run the following command in your terminal:

sass styles.scss styles.css

This will compile your `styles.scss` file into a `styles.css` file that you can include in your HTML code.

4. Link your CSS file: Finally, you need to link your compiled CSS file to your HTML code. For example, you might include the following code in your HTML file:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">

And that's it! Your Sass code has been compiled into CSS code and is ready to be used in your web page.
