Using LESS with WordPress


November 18, 2013

Don't you ever get tired by writing repetitive CSS  ? Have you ever thought to have something like having variables, functions etc in CSS ?  This is where Less CSS comes into the existence. If you are not familiar with LessCss then take a look at their Website. Once you have enough idea about what less is and how easily you can minimize your css codes and save hours of time, Now think how much useful will it be to use it with WordPress ? Doesn't that sounds Cool ?

Using Less with WordPress was never been so easy until when Lessify WordPress Plugin came into existence. Lessify WordPress gives you the power to dynamically compile your less file on the fly. What you need to do is just enqueue your less file in traditional WordPress way and everything else is taken care by Lessify WordPress.

This plugin is based on lessphp by Leaf Corcoran and compiles the less files to css files on the fly. The good thing about this plugin is that it  doesn't always compile the less files. It checks the enqueued less file with the cached file and when it gets any differences then only compiles the less file.
