Changes that are made in less files that are imported using the @import statement is not detected and therefore not rendered in browsers with localStorage enabled.

This makes it especially hard to work with several files imported into one during development.


styles.less (included in html file via <link> tag)

@import "colors.less";

colors.less (exposed to html file via @import statement in styles.less)

    color: #FF0000;  // changes in this prop is not reflected in the rendered html after initial render


Disable browser localStorage


Please fix this, that's a very annoying issue...


I agree this should be fixed, but for now you can always precompile your Less code into CSS using if your on a Mac or WinLess if your using Windows. Another good option is SimpLess. This results in a much faster website anyway so is a better option really. Just make sure you hang on to the less file incase you want to make changes to it later.
