Yeah, I agree the css could have more capability of using variables of the Outsystems Platform.



Yes. outsystems definitely needs a css pre-processor.

Yes agree. Hopefully Outsystems will prepare it in future.

Merged this idea with 'CSS Preprocessors to help simplify theming/styling (LESS/SASS)' (created on 2017-06-27 22:49:14 by Jasper Oudenaarden)

The addition of a css preprocessor would be an enormous help for theming and styling.
Today, at the OutSystems Partner Webinar, we've seen some cool features to adjust the theming according to your company specific styleguide. How cool would it be to have this generate an preprocessor file from which you can work from now on. I'm sure there are a lot of OutSystem front-end devs who jump through the roof if this is offered (including myself)

Changed the category to Frontend


I was thinking to submit similar idea, but it is sad to see that this is also buried into dust of the OutSystems PM files :(

Is there an update on this topic/idea? Would be so helpful!

Hi Jasper,

Historically we've been sitting on the fence on this one because there was a Less vs Saas fight and because browser inspection support was not great. Those are mostly things of the past now. In the meantime CSS has evolved, namely with CSS Variables. 

We are using them in the new Theme Editor that was just release in Beta.

Unfortunately other much needed Saas functionality hasn't become a CSS standard, so this is still a very valid request. We have it on our radar, but to be honest it's not on our short-term roadmap (i.e. next couple of quarters).

Cheers,
Tiago Simões
