Installing

With the Package Control plugin: The easiest way to install this package is through Package Control, which can be found at this site: https://sublime.wbond.net/installation

Once you install Package Control, restart ST2 and bring up the Command Palette (Command+Shift+p on OS X, Control+Shift+p on Linux/Windows). Select "Package Control: Install Package", wait while Package Control fetches the latest package list, then select LESS when the list appears.

Without Git: Download the latest source zip from github and extract the files to your Sublime Text "Packages" directory, into a new directory named LESS.

With Git: Clone the repository in your Sublime Text "Packages" directory:

git clone git://github.com/danro/LESS-sublime.git LESS

The "Packages" directory is located at:

  • OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/
  • Linux: ~/.Sublime Text 2/Packages/
  • Windows: %APPDATA%/Sublime Text 2/Packages/

Settings

Settings may be accessed through the main Sublime menu:

Preferences > Package Settings > LESS

{
  // Boolean setting to auto-insert a semicolon after a ":" is typed.
  "auto_insert_semicolon": false
}
