I prefer writing raw CSS to using SASS. Yes, I'd rather lose nested styles and mixins over adding an extra second to my build time. Sue me 🤷♀️
SASS has been on my to-do list for years, but I never really felt the need to pursue it.
Try Less first. It's the same syntaxe as CSS but with nested and variables. You can learn it in minutes.
Once you spend a little time with it learn how to setup and use it can save you lots of time and you will never want to go back to plain .css files. Happened to me. Of course there is some small projects that setting up and running it all the time does not make sense.
I agree, and I made a JS lib to add mixin support at runtime, which tbh is probably worse in the long run, but saves me from cluttering my html with extra classes or needing to build. cssmixin.glitch.me
