Less.js 1.7.5 / 2.0.0-b1

A respected JavaScript library for interpreting LESS syntax, a dynamic stylesheet language created for adding extra features to CSS
LESS stands for Leaner CSS, and is an extension for the CSS language, adding support for variables, nested rules, mixins and operations.

LESS currently supports both CSS 2 & 3 syntax and is a widely used language amongst developers.

Less.js is a JavaScript library capable of reading LESS syntax.

The library is basically a CSS preprocessor, taking .less files and converting their content to standards compliant CSS code, also saving it to a new file in classic .css format which every browser can interpret.

Both LESS (the syntax) and Less.js (the library) have seen usage in large companies around the Internet, starting with Google, Twitter and Facebook.

Main features:

  • Operations
  • Nested Rules
  • Mixins
  • Variables
  • Selector inheritance
  • Its own .LESS file format
  • Runs on server (with node.js) and client side
