C6

Hate waiting for SASS compiling your stylesheets with Compass over 10 seconds everytime? C6 helps you write style sheets with efficiency.

C6 is a SASS 3.2 compatible implementation written in Go. But wait! this is not only to implement SASS, but also to create a new language for better consistency, syntax and performance. And yes, this means we're free to accept new language feature requests.

Ambiguity

The original design of SASS contains a lot of grammar ambiguity.

for example, as SASS uses interpolation:

#{$name}:before {

}

Since nested properties are allowed, in the above code, we don't know if it's a selector or a property namespace if we don't know the $name variable.

Where before might be a property value or a part of the selector.

links:

To handle this kind of interpolation, we define a type of token named template:

#{$name}:before a {

}

In the above code, #{$name}:before a is treated as T_SELECTOR_TEMPLATE token, which type will be resolved at the runtime.

FAQ

Why do you want to implement another SASS compiler?

The original SASS is written in Ruby and it's really slow, we take 11 seconds to compile the stylesheets of our application, libsass is fast but it does not catch up the ruby sass implementation , and you can't compile them with Compass. Since Go is simple, easy & fast, thus we implement SASS in Go to move faster.

Further, we want to design a new language (ECSS temporarily named) that is compatible with SASS 3.4 or even SASS 4.0 with more powerful features.
