LESS Compiler

Description

Write LESS, edit your variables and compile your stylesheet from your dashboard.

Read the documentation

  • Register and enqueue your LESS sheets the same way you would do for your CSS.

    `
    

    wp_enqueue_style( ‘my-less-handle’, ‘http://example.com/css/mystyle.less’, $deps, $ver, $media );
    `

  • Configure the plugin with the less_configuration filter.

    Configuration of the plugin is optional, but you should at least register your variables if you are using a CSS framework.

  • Set a LESS variable value

    `
    

    less_set( $variable, $value );
    `

  • Get a LESS variable value

    `
    

    less_get( $variable );
    `

You will most likely use these functions in your theme’s functions.php.

The plugin uses the Less.php Compiler.
