Wait, so what's the browser compatibility with this?
As much as I love SCSS, and I do, if I don't have to use it anymore in place of standard css, that's ideal
CSS variables are supported in all modern browsers.
For Internet Explorer, I usually use a fallback value:
But then, of course, updating value at runtime won't work in IE. I think that this fallback is sufficient when the changes are only cosmetic.
For Internet Explorer, you can try this polyfill:
It enables nearly full custom properties support for it.
Support is not too shabby: developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/W...
That's support for setProperty itself, not support for cash variables, which won't work with setProperty (or at all on ie without polyfilling - and the best polfyills only support initial evaluation)
So, aside from IE, if your browser is less than a year old (2 years, at least, if you exclude Edge), CSS variables work.
