I am practicing building a child theme and wanted to know if there are any tools out there that any of you devs may use for this purpose?
Just a text editor for standard style sheets.
If you're building sass style sheets or using a style framework like Bourbon or Compass, you need to install the Sass compiler, maybe npm and other tools. It depends on how you have your dev environment setup and whether you're using Windows, Linux, or Mac as your OS. I use Mac so almost anything I need can be installed with Brew. See this: https://sass-lang.com/
I use Mac as well and love Brew also. I have used Brew for doing Python work.
Anyway, since Bootstrap 4 uses the Sass preprocessor, could I just use Bootstrap then, or is using a full fledged framework like Bootstrap 4 to help build a child theme superfluous?
I am just trying to come up with the most efficient, productive, and quickest way I can get this done.
