Sassc is outdated vs Dart Sass

The sass folks nowadays tend to implement things in dart sass, improve the documentation, and then let everyone else catch up. I recently ran into this when trying to use @use in a Rails app and realized that it was still unsupported. It’d be rather nice if we just used Dart Sass.

I think the issue is a bit bigger. More and more things that Sprockets relied on in the old days are essentially dead or outdated now. This includes SassC, CoffeeScript (RIP :sob: ), Uglifier and even Sprockets itself to some extent.

Frontend realm moved forward leaving rails defaults a bit behind in recent years. Overall JS and CSS development used to be “simple” or rather straightforward, now it’s not and we need to learn it again.
