Angular CSS SASS Visual Studio

Implementing SASS in Angular Core 2 Visual Studio Template

What did I learn today?

Today I found that the Visual Studio 2017 Core 2 template for Angular does not include any type of CSS preprocessor despite having WebPack installed.  I can understand that they want let people pick the CSS system they prefer but I feel not to include something is a huge miss.  My favorite CSS preprocessor is SASS.

This quick post will describe how to get SASS preprocessing with file watches setup using WebPack in Visual Studio.
