SCSS (short for “Sassy CSS”) and SASS (short for “Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets”) are both CSS preprocessors. A CSS preprocessor is a tool that allows you to write styles for your website using a special syntax that is then compiled into regular CSS that can be used in a web browser.

SCSS and SASS are both variations of the original SASS syntax. SCSS is an extension of the CSS syntax, and it uses curly braces and semicolons like regular CSS. SASS, on the other hand, uses indentation and does not use curly braces or semicolons.

Here is an example of SCSS syntax:

$font-stack: Helvetica, sans-serif;
$primary-color: #333;

body {
  font: 100% $font-stack;
  color: $primary-color;

And here is the equivalent code in SASS syntax:

$font-stack: Helvetica, sans-serif
$primary-color: #333

  font: 100% $font-stack
  color: $primary-color

Both SCSS and SASS allow you to use variables, nested selectors, mixins, and other features that make it easier to write and maintain CSS styles. They also support features such as functions and loops, which are not present in regular CSS.

The main difference between SCSS and SASS is the syntax. Some developers prefer the SCSS syntax because it is more familiar and similar to CSS, while others prefer the SASS syntax because it is more concise and easy to read. Ultimately, the choice between SCSS and SASS comes down to personal preference.

I hope this helps to clarify the difference between SCSS and SASS! Let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.
