Needed a way to floor percentages to specified decimal places instead of just down to the whole number, and this did exactly that for me. Thanks!

I love your logic!

Thank you.

Thank you, I was about to build one for myself. Your saving me time.

Thank you, great!

If you want 0 digits, it rounds to 2 digits instead.

Here's a fix :

@function decimal-round ($number, $digits: 0, $mode: round) {
    $n: 1;
    // $number must be a number
    @if type-of($number) != number {
        @warn '#{ $number } is not a number.';
        @return $number;
    }
    // $digits must be a unitless number
    @if type-of($digits) != number {
        @warn '#{ $digits } is not a number.';
        @return $number;
    } @else if not unitless($digits) {
        @warn '#{ $digits } has a unit.';
        @return $number;
    }
    @if $digits > 0 {
        @for $i from 1 through $digits {
            $n: $n * 10;
        }
    }
    @if $mode == round {
        @return round($number * $n) / $n;
    } @else if $mode == ceil {
        @return ceil($number * $n) / $n;
    } @else if $mode == floor {
        @return floor($number * $n) / $n;
    } @else {
        @warn '#{ $mode } is undefined keyword.';
        @return $number;
    }
}

nice job

awesome logic @terke.
