Sass Imitator?

So, as my astute readers know. Nathan and I created a language called Sass that is a hightower language for CSS. (A “hightower language” is a high-level language that can be compiled into a more basic language.)

Someone (who seemingly doesn’t know of Sass) created a Python-based CSS language called CleverCSS. Its very, very similar to Sass, but has some cool features in it like functions. I’m not really sure I want Sass to have functions, but I’m really glad to see other people are having similar thoughts to mine.

In fact, CleverCSS is 99% compatible with Sass. Just a few small difference. And, luckily I can claim to be ahead of them by about 6 months of release-time.

Anyhow, if you’re a Pythonist, then go check it out! Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

I've actually seen a couple different things that I would call Sass imitators. I think if you just leave a geek alone with enough spare time, they'll accidentally whip something like that up.
