Always give credit where it's due. Parts of this script is modified from Mikeal Rogers's watch script (https://github.com/mikeal/watch)
Install LESS (http://www.lesscss.org/) and make sure the
lessc binary is accessible to the script. Installing LESS with the
--global flag will make the binary accessible to your system.
npm install less --global
