Yet Another connect-less Build Status

The other existing less handlers for connect.js did not quite work for the site-manager. We needed a bit more flexibility than the other implementations had.

This version supports passing multiple directories, which are all searched for less files. The less files are compiled when requested the first time, unless debugging is enabled.


npm install connect-less-jolira


Search for .less files in /var/www and /home/fido/www:

var connect = require("connect"),
    less = require("connect-less-jolira"),
    app = connect.createServer();
app.use(less(["/var/www", "/home/fido/www"]));

Any file with extenstion .less will be compiled on-demand and returned as ``text/css`. E.g.




Logs can be turned on using:

export NODE_DEBUG="connect-less"
