About This Class

What is LESS ?

Less is a CSS is a superset of CSS and a pre-processor programming language, often referred as "Dynamic CSS".

  • LESS syntax is modelled after traditional CSS
  • LESS compiles into standard CSS3
  • LESS allows you to extend your CSS with great features such as :
    • Variables for faster maintenance
    • Mixins as re-usable objects
    • Nesting for a cleaner stylesheet structure
    • Math calculations with the Operators.
  • Less code and more work done !

Why use LESS ?

While CSS is a great language, it has its limitations.

For example, if you have a color code used multiple times in your stylesheet, you need to edit this one multiple times to update your design. Very tedious process!

LESS is great for the following reasons. :

  • Allows to cut down one code and save time
  • Reduce repetition (DRY) and mistakes
  • It makes logical sense to break out CSS into multiple files with the feature

Every web developer or front-end UI engineer should use LESS over traditional CSS
