What's the difference between "Compiled CSS" and not

Hello, i would now what is the difference when we use “Compiled CSS” and when we not use it.

What does glide recommend?


Eyes ? :rofl:

I’m watching this thread…I’d like to know as well.

it seems like nobody know the answer :rofl: :eyes: :eyes: :eyes:

Here is what Chat-GPT says:

"Compiled CSS refers to the process of converting CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) code written in a high-level language such as Sass, Less, or Stylus into plain CSS that can be read by web browsers.

These high-level languages offer a variety of features such as variables, nesting, and mixins that make writing and managing CSS code more efficient and maintainable. However, web browsers do not understand these high-level languages and need plain CSS to apply styles to web pages.

Therefore, developers use a preprocessor to write CSS in a high-level language and then compile it into plain CSS that can be used by web browsers. This compiled CSS is then included in the HTML code and applied to the corresponding web page."

If I understand that correctly, then the only difference between compiled CSS and “normal” CSS is in the way that it is created/generated. But that doesn’t explain why Glide would give you a separate option to use Compiled CSS. That kind of seems a bit pointless. But I guess there must be some subtle difference :man_shrugging:
