Your Own Damn [Susy] System
Miriam introduced Susy Two at The Mixin meetup in San Francisco, and then recorded a version of the talk just for you. This is a great introduction to Susy, and the philosophy behind it.
Susy Next: Alpha 5
Susy Next alpha 5 is out, and loaded with changes. We now require Sass 3.3, we no longer require Compass, and there have been major syntax improvements. We're getting real close to launch, and we'd love to know what you think. Play around, and let us know!
Map-Set vs. Map-Merge
The difference between map-set and map-merge? Almost nothing.
Susy Next: Alpha 4
Susy Next alpha 4 is now available.
Susy Next: The Second Alpha
I've just released the second alpha of Susy Next. Go download and play with it!
Isolation and Bleed in Susy
A few new features have landed in Susy 1.0.7,
even as we work on more integrated syntaxes for 2.0.
help you manage the worst effects of
bleed() helps you break items out of the box.
Susy Next: The First Alpha
Last night we released the very first alpha build of Susy Next. This release is extremely sparse. What we have built is a background 'engine' for calculating grid math. There are some rough first steps towards api and syntax, but they are more "proof of concept" experimentation than usable interface.
Sass Layout in 2013 and the Future of Susy
The web is littered with grid systems and 'frameworks' that force your code & design into narrowly defined patterns. Even the most semantic of us have had to push specialized techniques in order to create a usable syntax.
But Sass has come a long way, and I'm convinced that it's time for something new.
What if you had a layout system that bends completely to the needs of your site? What if you could use one unified syntax for handling responsive layouts of any kind? What if you had a modular system that let you mix-and-match to customize for every site, and change your output with simple extensions?
