This vim bundle adds syntax highlighting, indenting and autocompletion for the dynamic stylesheet language LESS.

This bundle is compatible with vim-css-color, vim-css3-syntax and possibly other plugins that place code in after/syntax/css.vim or after/syntax/css/*.vim.

vim-less with vim-css-color and vim-css3-syntax (colorscheme solarized)

Installing and Using

  • Install pathogen into ~/.vim/autoload/ and add the following line to your ~/.vimrc:

      call pathogen#infect()
  • Make a clone of the vim-less repository:

      $ mkdir -p ~/.vim/bundle
      $ cd ~/.vim/bundle
      $ git clone
  • OR use vundle, adding this line to your ~/.vimrc:

      Plugin 'groenewege/vim-less'
  • OR use neobundle, adding this line to your ~/.vimrc:

      NeoBundle 'groenewege/vim-less'
  • OR use git submodules:
