Sass is a meta-language on top of CSS.
Installation: Sass is part of Haml, which is available via git.
gem install haml
Sass can be used with Ruby, Ruby on Rails or as a command-line tool.
To run Sass from the command line
sass input.sass output.css
Sample Usage (with variables)
!main_color = blue
!site_background = white
:color = !main_color
:family verdana, arial, sans-serif
Sass can calculate
!color2 = !main_color*0.33 + !site_background*0.67
!color3 = !main_color*0.67 + !site_background*0.33
:color = !color2
:background_color = !color3

- Sass and CSS cannot be mixed. Existing CSS has to be translated to Sass first. The commandline tool "css2sass" can help.
