Growing with the Web


My name is Daniel Imms and I'm a software engineer from Australia. I live in Seattle and work at Amazon on the Silk Web Browser. I use this blog as a platform to learn, revise and teach various software development topics.

Mozilla Firefox recently implemented the highly anticipated CSS variables spec. Since then, some articles started appearing hinting that they are now largely obsolete with the advent and widespread use of preprocessors like Sass, Less, and Stylus. I would argue however that they provide something that preprocessors can’t, well at least can’t efficiently.
