Getting Started with Less

The Medium Way (Prepros App)

Getting Setup (medium difficuly way)

The "easy" ways aren't ideal because you:

  1. Codepen isn't practical for a true development environment
  2. less.js isn't practical because you have to include less files.

So, how do we compile the .less files easily?

Just use an app.

Right now the easiest / best app I've seen is Prepros. It's:

  • Works on Windows
  • Works on Mac
  • Has an "Auto-config" to minimize configuration
  • Can minify, live-reload and more on multiple devices
  • Also supports Sass

Another alternative and similar app for this is Codekit.
