For some time I’m using great programmer’s editor, Visual Studio Code. It’s quite fast, has well-designed, clean interface, which focuses on work and is quite extensible. What’s curious, it’s written on Chromium engine and extensions may be written in Javascript or in Typescript.

During development of WordPress theme for my website, I missed Visual Studio Code support for automatic compiling SASS files to CSS. There’s indeed a solution involving Node.js and Gulp and configuring a task runner to trigger compilation, but it seemed too complicated, so I decided to write my own Visual Studio extension: Easy Sass. Its name is based on similar extension: Easy Less, which provides similar functionality for Less sheets.

My extension is available for free on Microsoft Marketplace and its source code is available on my GitHub.
