PostCSS is a versatile tool for transforming CSS with JavaScript plugins. It allows developers to write CSS using modern syntax and features like variables, nesting, and mixins, which are then processed and transformed into standard CSS. PostCSS is highly modular, enabling developers to choose and configure only the plugins they need for their project, making it lightweight and customizable.

Compared to traditional preprocessors like Sass or Less, PostCSS offers more flexibility and extensibility by allowing developers to create custom plugins or use existing ones from the vast ecosystem. It is actively maintained and widely adopted in the front-end development community.
