CSS / HTML Features Plan for 7.3.next


CSS preprocessor "frameworks"


  • P1 syntax support - coloring

  • P1 completion for mixins/vars
  • P2 vars mark occurrences, goto declaration, rename refactoring/find usages
  • P2 semantic coloring, folds, navigator content
  • P2 LESS/SASS files autocompile & browser refresh
  • P3? built-in libraries

Responsive design/device-agnostic frameworks

  • Compass (as is commonly used with SASS)
    • P1 completion for the built in variables, "property names"
    • P3? built-in library

TBD what frameworks to support as there's plenty of them
