Syntax Highlighting for LESS files in Notepad++ (UDL v2.1)

What's This Thing

Just an xml file that gives you syntax highlighting/coloring for .LESS files inside recent versions of Notepad++ (the ones that support the User Defined Language).

How to Use it

  • Download the less.xml file
  • Open Notepad++
  • Go to Language -> Define your language..., click on Import... and select the less.xml file you've downloaded
  • Close and restart Notepad++
  • Done

Notes

The color scheme is purposedly built for the Bespin theme (a dark theme), but changing the background color should be quite easy (it's an xml file in the end;).

Here's a preview of how it looks like:

Thanks to Raúl Salitrero who made the initial version (see http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/notepad-plus/?title=User_Defined_Language_Files#L).

Use it however you like it.

Contributions

Some kind souls contributed a few mods inspired by alternative themes.
