    Express LESS

    On-the-fly LESS-to-CSS conversion middleware.

    For more information on LESS visit lesscss.org.

    Installation

    $ npm install express-less
    

    Usage

    var express = require('express'),
        expressLess = require('express-less');
     
    var app = express();
    app.use('/less-css', expressLess(__dirname + '/less'));

    Now request to /less-css/styles.css will return rendered contents of ./less/styles.less. Note the change of file extension from .less to .css.

    Additionally, you can ask LESS to compress the result:

    app.use('/less-css', expressLess(__dirname + '/less', { compress: true }));

    For detail information on LESS errors use the debug option, e.g.

    // Enable error reporting permanently
    app.use('/less-css', expressLess(__dirname + '/less', { debug: true }));
     
    // or only for development environment
    app.use('/less-css', expressLess(__dirname + '/less', {
        debug: app.get('env') == 'development'
    }));

    You can enable the cache system to improve performance:

    app.use('/less-css', expressLess(__dirname + '/less', { cache: true }));

    Tests

    $ npm test
