Myth CSS Preprocessor with Pure CSS Syntax

With the popularity of Sass & LESS there’s no doubt that pre-processing is the way of the future. But do these 2 engines have to be the only way?

As it turns out, no! One great option is Myth created by Segment.io as a clean CSS preprocessing system.

It runs on top of traditional CSS code with very similar syntax requirements. You can find the whole library on GitHub completely free of charge.

The idea of Myth is to behave like a polyfill for future versions of the spec. This means CSS4 concepts can be rendered neatly or collected with fallback codes for legacy browsers. Myth is the way CSS preprocessing should work – a clean fill on top of natural CSS syntax.

    It seems somebody got jealous of the attention PostCSS was getting so they created Rework. Then somebody got jealous of the attention Autoprefixer was getting, so they created this Myth thingy.

    Now let’s wait until this gets very popular and lots of projects depend on this, so they write a brand new, fluid-interface, promise-based, ES6-ready, next version (or competing project), so we have something new to give our attention to.
