less variables which are not scoped should be available to overwrite using a importless.json config file.

importless.json config

specifies the global variables that should be overwritten and the value with which they should be overwritten by.

Example importless.json

  "variables": {
    "icon-font-path": "build/fonts/",
    "notification-base-color": "#FAFAFA"

list variables available for overwrite

importless should provide a function that returns the global variable names as an array.


Not sure how the actual overwriting is being done. Need to investigate if the parse tree can be modified and then compiled.
Modify parse tree and then call .toCSS() to compile.

re overwrite:

the less parse tree has a .toCSS method, so overwriting properties and then compiling should be easy
