A utility to make lessc's CLI more performant for large directories of LESS files.
npm -g install less-cluster
less-cluster is designed to be used on entire directories of LESS files, with output generally redirected to a different directory while maintaining the subdirectory structure of the source tree.
Usage:less-cluster [options] [directory] [outputdir] [files...]If the -d/--directory option is not passed, it is interpreted as the firstargument, defaulting to the current working directory.Likewise, if the -o/--outputdir option is omitted, it is interpreted as thesecond argument, defaulting to the --directory.Any additional file arguments will be treated as filters limiting the top-level imports to the denoted files. The dependents and consumers of thesefiles will also be built, as well.Options:-d, --directory Directory to search for LESS source files. [$CWD]-o, --outputdir Directory to output generated CSS files into. [$CWD]-m, --match Pattern matching files to be processed. ["**/*.less"]-w, --workers Number of workers to spawn.
