The "easy" ways aren't ideal because you:
- Codepen isn't practical for a true development environment
- 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.
