‘LESS’– a better way to write CSS

css-less-nnish

Are you a programmer like me who thinks design is a planet just outside your universe? Then you know CSS is fun, exciting and easy until your website grows fat with pages and complicated layouts. If you have ever tried fixing a layout in such a page – you know what I mean. Did I talk about fixing a layout? Oh yeah thanks to all the browsers.

Many at times while writing CSS I wished I could write it more programmatically than just styling them. For e.g. If CSS had allowed variable declarations, I could have simply held the values in variables, perform few operations and re-use them in properties. But that’s too much to ask for from a stylesheet language which should just do styling!

After doing couple of research I came across LESS – The dynamic stylesheet language. I spent a few hours re-styling some of my demos with LESS and I am must say I am thoroughly impressed with it.
