Perkins 2 aims to help those who do not fear using some commands and feel like a pro in the process by generating a Perkins Framework structure.
In other words, Perkins 2 is a CLI utility made with NodeJS to make your life a little bit easier. Also you could say it's the Compass of LESS or at least it wants to be :P
- Setup a new folder with the Framework in it
- Serve any folder with the integrated Preview HTTP Server
- Watch changes on app.less and output them to out/stylesheets/style.css
Note: the server plays nice with LESS.js so the function less.watch(); works just fine (this means automatic page changes on save on multiple devices (just like Adobe Shadow) ;)
BTW If you aren't a command-line type of guy/girl you definitely have to use Crunch App made by Matt and Matt.
$ sudo npm install -g perkins
Usage: perkins [command] --options <dir>
preview [path] This option create a Perkins Preview HTTP Server setup <path> Just relax let me take care of building a version of ... well me. watch <path> Watch changes on app.less and output them to out/stylesheets/style.css
-h, --help output usage information -V, --version output the version number -p, --port <port> specify the port  -m, --min minifies every less into out/style.css -v, --verbose output incoming requests.
- Update the p.erkins.com website ;)
