      If/Else Statements 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.

      An if statement is handy for checking if a variable exists or matches something:

      $var: true !default; // Can be overridden elsewhere
      
      @if $var == true {
        // Conditional code
      }
      
      $other: single;
      
      @if $other == single {
        // Code for if it’s single
      } @else if $other == double {
        // Double code
      } @else {
        // Default if it’s neither
      }
      

      Make sure that if your variable properties are stored with quotes around them, your @if statement checks that too. (e.g. $other ==‘single’).

      if statements can be useful for mixins for checking variables or in libraries to include or exclude code.
