Sass - Parantheses


Advertisements

Description

Parentheses are a pair of signs, which are usually marked off by round brackets ( ) or square brackets [], providing symbolic logic that affect the order of operations.

Example

The following example demonstrates the use of parentheses in the SCSS file −

<html>
   <head>
      <title>String Operations</title>
      <link rel = "stylesheet" type = "text/css" href = "style.css" />
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.5/css/bootstrap.min.css">
      <script src = "https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.5/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
   </head>
   <body>
      <div class = "container">
         <h2>Example using Sass Parentheses</h2>
         <p>SASS stands for Syntactically Awesome Stylesheet..</p>
      </div>
   </body>
</html>

Next, create file style.scss.

style.scss

p {
   font-size:  5px + (6px * 2);
   color:#ff0000;
}

You can tell SASS to watch the file and update the CSS whenever SASS file changes, by using the following command −

sass --watch C:\ruby\lib\sass\style.scss:style.css

Next, execute the above command; it will create the style.css file automatically with the following code −

style.css

p {
   font-size: 17px;
   color: #ff0000;
}

Output

Let us carry out the following steps to see how the above given code works −

  • Save the above given html code in parentheses_example.html file.

  • Open this HTML file in a browser, an output is displayed as shown below.
