Sass also allows us to perform mathematical functions to compute measurements— including colors.
Here is how Sass computes colors:
- The operation is performed on the red, green, and blue components.
- It computes the answer by operating on every two digits.
$color: #010203 + #040506;
The above would compute piece-wise as follows:
01 + 04 = 05 02 + 05 = 07 03 + 06 = 09
and compile to:
Sass arithmetic can also compute HSLA and string colors such as
Try it. Add red and blue to make the font color of
.math purple the following property:
color: red + blue;
