    Comments in Sass

    While we believe that this content benefits our community, we have not yet thoroughly reviewed it. If you have any suggestions for improvements, please let us know by clicking the “report an issue“ button at the bottom of the tutorial.

    In Sass you can define multiline comments the same way as in CSS:

    /* Just some comment
    about some style */

    Unless you use the compressed output format, these multiline comments will be kept in the final CSS.

    You can force Sass to keep multiline comments in the final output by using this syntax with the additional !:

    /*! Just some comment
    about some style */

    You can also define single-line comments:

    // Color my life
    body {
      background-color: mistyrose;

    Single-line comments won’t be kept in the final CSS, no matter which output style you use for compiling your Sass to CSS.
