grunt-recess Build Status

Lint and minify CSS and LESS using RECESS

Issues with the output should be reported on the RECESS issue tracker.


$ npm install --save-dev grunt-recess



require('load-grunt-tasks')(grunt); // npm install --save-dev load-grunt-tasks

    recess: {
        dist: {
            src: ['src/main.css']

grunt.registerTask('default', ['recess']);

Lint and compile

recess: {
    dist: {
        options: {
            compile: true
        files: {
            'dist/main.css': 'src/main.less'

A destination is only needed when compile: true. It won't output any warnings in this mode. You can also specify .less files and they will be compiled.


// Default
compile: false              // Compiles CSS or LESS. Fixes white space and sort order.
compress: false             // Compress your compiled code
noIDs: true                 // Doesn't complain about using IDs in your stylesheets
noJSPrefix: true            // Doesn't complain about styling .js- prefixed classnames
noOverqualifying: true      // Doesn't complain about overqualified selectors (ie:
noUnderscores: true         // Doesn't complain about using underscores in your class names
noUniversalSelectors: true  // Doesn't complain about using the universal * selector
prefixWhitespace: true      // Adds whitespace prefix to line up vender prefixed properties
strictPropertyOrder: true   // Complains if not strict property order
zeroUnits: true             // Doesn't complain if you add units to values of 0
includePath: mixed          // Additional paths to look for `@import`'ed LESS files.  Accepts a string or an array of strings.
