LESS.js for Windows

A simple command-line utilty for Windows that will compile *.less files to CSS using less.js.

Original blog post.

Usage

To use it, invoke lessc.wsf via cscript.exe like so:

cscript //nologo lessc.wsf input.less [output.css] [-compress]

I've also added a less.cmd shim which will simplify it to just:

lessc input.less [output.css] [-compress]

If you don't specify an output.css the result is written to standard output. The -compress option minifies the output. I'll look into implementing the other command-line arguments supported by lessc in due course.

I've added a couple of test files, so you can see if it's working like so:

C:\code\lessc-wsh>lessc test.less
/* Variables */
#header {
  color: #4d926f;
}
h2 {
  color: #4d926f;
}
/* Mixins */
#header {
  -moz-border-radius: 5px;
  -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
  border-radius: 5px;
}
