    Create reusable groups of declarations with Mixins. A good use case is when many vendor prefixes need to be used. Code it once and call it anywhere:

    @mixin column-count($nb-columns) {
      -webkit-column-count: $nb-columns;
      -moz-column-count: $nb-columns;
      column-count: $nb-columns;
    // Calling the mixin:
    .two-columns { @include column-count(2); }


    The above snippet will yield the following CSS:

    .two-columns {
      -webkit-column-count: 2;
      -moz-column-count: 2;
      column-count: 2;
