Hi everyone, 

the sass theme is ported to Kendo UI for jQuery, and can be used in MVC/ .NET Core. We are working on a brand new themebuilder for the Sass themes and on porting the bootstrap theme, too. 

You can check the new theme in our demos -

Hello.  Will this SASS support extend to all other Kendo UI based themes besides for your react/angular development?  I'd like to use Kendo UI with SASS in a Bootstrap 3/4 or Foundation SASS based web site using .NET Core or .NET MVC versions of Kendo UI.   Please update any ETA on this please.

Is there an ETA on this?  SASS support would be a considerable benefit for my organization.  Do you have a target release?

Hello, when we can expect to see sass support for jquery kendo ui and existing themes (like fiori or moonlight)? Thank you

We haven't researched other frameworks at this point, Hugo. 

However, given that the implementation will be based on SASS imports inside Kendo UI Theme definition (basically .sass file), in theory it should work with other frameworks utilizing SASS as well.

What about other UI frameworks ? Foundation for example ? Will the import also works on this framework ? What about custom frameworks built on SASS ?

How would your proposal differ from the LESS style implementation?

Yes, the theme will allow full customization of Kendo UI widget elements using SASS definitions, Ben. It will also fit naturally in the workflow of a project which utilizes SASS for styling.
Posted on: 22 Jan 2016 11:31
For clarification can I ask is the proposed theme something that would allow styling/theming of all of the Kendo UI elements directly via SASS or is it just indirect control of appearance by way of importing specific variables etc?

I think the real desire is to be able to use the entirety of Kendo UI's theming capabilities in the same workflow as most other libraries, most of which are tending towards being based on SASS.

Just as a note, this is being dispatched in the Telerik developer digest.

Yes, please. SASS is being around for quite a long time so it is good to have it eventually.

It's just because people use Sass now! Not Less any more. Why people use Sass now? Because it is superior to Less and easier to use. Better get through that or you lose the ground quite soon. And I'm saying this as business advice, because I appreciate all your work on JS part. Same goes with supporting Foundation instead of lame Bootstrap.

Hey guys, it's such an easy decision. Please support sass.

Sass support is a no-brainer and must have. 
Posted on: 22 Oct 2015 15:29
Lack of Sass support is a major drawback of using Kendo UI. Crossing my fingers that support will be added soon.

Yeah, well these days Sass is certainly more of an industry standard than less...
Posted on: 17 Sep 2015 09:32
As commented earlier, the most important argument for me is integration in existing SASS-projects. I want to be able to control my styles through sass-files and integrate with existing build processes en software environments. I don't feel like refactoring projects to Less, just to work with kendo, it should be the other way around.

Converting Less to Sass introduces an extra risk in my build process; I cannot control the quality of the conversion process.

My expectation of a paid web framework is that it supports common industry standards, I believe SASS is common enough to be supported. (see Bootstrap argument)
Posted on: 16 Sep 2015 10:22
Bootstrap is moving to SASS. I think you can support both of them...

I would think that SASS support would be a no-brainer at this point.

// Please continue to support LESS as well, SASS and LESS appear to be the main camps...

I'm hoping this will get more attention now that Bootstrap is moving completely to SASS:

Thanks for the feedback, guys. Will pass it to the team.

In the interim you may consider using this grunt plugin to convert less files to sass:

Much, much more people use Sass in production. And as someone noted most frameworks use Sass (eg: Bootstrap 4, Foundation)

Bootstrap already provide sass files through their sister project bootstrap-sass, so it would be convenient if kendo do the same. That will helps with customization and inclusion within other projects, instead of compiling Less or use CSS files and have them separated. On your side you'll probably enjoy features Sass provides over Less, ie:

Considering Zurb Foundation already uses Sass and Bootstrap 4 will be based on Sass, I think it would make for a more compelling integration story with these frameworks.

Converting existing projects to telerik platform that already have sass will be a breeze.
Right now, if I want to use telerik platform, I need to convert sass to less, which is time consuming if there is a lot of sass code.

I find it very useful and it's a pity that is not supported
