Pintsize Automates Sass & HTML Template Building

Sass/SCSS has changed the way developers create websites. It saves time, frustration, and offers a powerful new workflow to hasten web projects.

This excitement has naturally caused developers to jump into the ring with their own Sass-related ideas. Some are basic mixins while others are plugins or libraries that run on top of Sass commands.

Pintsize is a Sass template generator for building out full HTML layouts. It relies on Gulp to automate the process which generates HTML columns/rows based on predefined settings.

Granted there are other ways to do this, like a framework such as Zurb Foundation. But Pintsize gives credence to the notion that sometimes we want to create our work from scratch.

Pintsize is easy to install through either Bower or NPM(via Node.js). It runs on top of files much like Sass, and Pintsize actually comes with default SCSS settings for you to use.

To learn more take a peek at the official GitHub Repo and browse through some of the example snippets. I was surprised at the simplicity of Pintsize and I hope more developers can rely on this Sass/HTML template generator for hand-crafted web projects.
