Subject [ANN] Ant task for converting .less (LessCSS) to regular CSS
Date Wed, 26 Aug 2009 07:19:33 GMT
FYI: I've created an Ant task for converting LessCSS files o regular CSS.

- converts .less files to .css
- supports both lessc and plessc, the LessPHP alternative (at least one is
- supports time-outs
- only processes changed files
- supports separate source/target directories, with include/exclude patterns

It's available under de BSD-license for download from github:

- for lessc (tested lessc v1.1.13) to work to fail properly when lesscs
fails, a minor change to one of the lessc files is required, this may be
resolved in an upcoming version of the task and/or an upcoming version of
- plessc v0.1.6 works well with the task, but has a rather annoying bug
related to negative background positions, see:

Check out the README file for instructions and suggestions.
