This was announced about a month ago, but I wanted to make sure the Rails community is aware that the Ruby implementation of Sass has been EOL'd.
That is, unless, there's at least one new, active maintainer for the ruby implementation of Sass. Preferably more than one.
Rails needs a plan a plan to deal with this before the ruby version becomes unmaintained. If a first-class Sass implementation for the ruby and rails community is desired, hopefully a maintainer can be found. Otherwise, one of the other Sass implementations can be used (most likely through node/npm).
I personally started switching to Webpacker.
@amalrik can you link to the thread on rails main repo for us?
In my specific apps, I have switched to sassc-rails without problem. Although I have no trouble believing there are reasons it can't work universally. I am curious to see what is being discussed on rails repo.
This gem has been deprecated and the recommended replacement is the sassc-rails gem. Its a drop in replacement so we dont need to do anything else. For context see rails/sass-rails#420. It seems v6 of the gem we are using will make it a wrapper for the other gem. We can upgrade already so theres no need to wait for this. Trello: https://trello.com/c/hcmzrcot/772
