Lately, I've discovered Bootstrap, and I can't begin to explain how excited I was. The thing is that, to override Bootstrap, one needs to use SCSS to be efficient (There's also a Less version, but that is not my point)
So reading about SCSS, it seems one needs to be using Ruby and Compass. The thing is I'm a PHP programmer, and until I've fully mastered this language, I can't afford to scatter my efforts. So my question is the following :
- Can Bootstrap, SCSS and PHP be used all together efficiently? Knowing that when I work, I keep modifying my CSS while coding in PHP most of the time.
- If not, is it a viable option to code front-end first using Ruby and SCSS, then compile my SCSS files into CSS and switch to PHP? I don't know but it seems quite time-consuming to me.
If you're a PHP programmer and use Bootstrap at the same time, please share with me your experience. How do you work? What tools do you use, etc... I'm keen for any bit of information you might provide me with.
