Compresses the css output from less using clean-css.

lessc usage

npm install -g less-plugin-clean-css

and then on the command line,

lessc file.less --clean-css="--s1 --advanced --compatibility=ie8"

See clean-css for the available command options - the only differences are advanced and rebase which we default to false, because it is not always entirely safe.

Programmatic usage

var LessPluginCleanCSS = require('less-plugin-clean-css'),
    cleanCSSPlugin = new LessPluginCleanCSS({advanced: true});
less.render(lessString, { plugins: [cleanCSSPlugin] })
