About

These are Ruby bindings for the next generation LESS, which is implemented in JavaScript

For more information, visit http://lesscss.org.

Usage

less.rb exposes the less.Parser constructor to ruby code via Less::Parser. You can instate it context free:

parser = Less::Parser.new

or with configuration options:

parser = Less::Parser.new :paths => ['./lib', 'other/lib'], :filename => 'mystyles.less'

Once you have a parser instantiated, you can parse code to get your AST !

tree = parser.parse(".class {width: 1+1}") # => Less::Tree
tree.to_css #=> .class {\n  width: 2;\n}\n
tree.to_css(:compress => true) #=> .class{width:2;}

Development

This repository contains less.js as a submodule, so to run the tests, you'll need to grab that code as well. To do that, run git submodule update --init from the root directory of the project.

To run the tests:

bundle
rake
