Has anyone used JIT in conjunction with any less or sass mixins? Any thoughts to share?
I'm putting a basic set of stuff together for a site build in the future, and I have already got some xsl for outputting retina sized images and paths to be handled by JS with fallbacks for non JS browsing, and it dawned on me that I could write JIT urls into my css, which I use les to compile. I have a mixin for retina images that I was thinking then to update to use JIT.
If I can save some time, has anyone else done it yet?
Nope, but I was planning on writing this, so I am glad I stopped by :)
Actually, when the whole responsive images thing started (about 1.5 years ago I think) the first thing I thought was how JIT in Symphony could be awesomely helpful.
I have not yet done anything with that but would be very interested in trying that out, possibly in combination with e.g. some back-end RESS stuff (there are some extensions being worked on a.t.m. I believe).
I have some cool xsl templates for this stuff. Needs a litle tweaking though to become a utility.
I wrote a RESS-type Symphony extension last year and the first (and only) feature was screen resolution detection. I use it on several personal sites but it didn't generate much interest so I haven't added any features or updated it for 2.3, though I plan to.
I wrote a similar extension to briandrum's (I think I borrowed some of your ideas) that is currently 2.3 ready.
Though I use JIT for responsive images, I haven't used JIT with SASS/Compass. I manually resize any media that goes into my stylesheets (since I know the breakpoint sizes, I optimize manually to guarantee quality and save processor time).
