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#runtime_append_all_bundles()

    Be aware that it must be added before any filetype plugin indent on lines according to the install page.

  • Make a clone of the vim-less repository:

      $ mkdir -p ~/.vim/bundle
      $ cd ~/.vim/bundle
      $ git clone
  • OR use git submodules:

      $ git submodule add bundle/vim-less
      $ git submodule init

That's it. Pathogen should handle the rest. Opening a file with a .less extension will load everything.


Inspiration from vim-haml, scss-syntax.vim and vim-less
