One of the major innovations on Stylesheets besides CSS3 itself, is certainly SASS and LESS. These two dynamic stylesheet languages enable us to do more styling with less code. It begins by defining simple styles within variables and mixins all the way up to creating nestings, functions and even dependencies - things that aren't possible within regular CSS.
I wrote a short article where I tried to give you a little glimpse on what SASS does and how it works (LESS is pretty similar to that).
This time I want to take a look at the flipside of these techniques. I want to show you some of the possible disadvantages you should think about, when choosing a CSS language like that.
