LESS TextMate Bundle

This bundle adds CSS syntax highlighting to .less files and parses them to .css files on save (^S). To learn more about LESS, see the docs.


npm install less

Save to CSS (^S)

Runs lessc on the current file, saving to the same file name with a .css extension (e.g. style.less => style.css). When there is lessc: somefile.less somewhere in the current file, that file is compiled instead.

Save to Rails CSS ( ⌘S)

Same as Save to CSS but instead of saving the same directory, it places it in the appropriate subdirectory in public folder.

Language Grammar

Not all LESS-specific grammars are added yet, if you'd like to do so, please fork and send a pull request.
