'a simple file watcher,capable of watching a single file or dir to help you make sport work of those pesky less files"
Is Less-Touch reborn to be more functional and fast and less redundant
' npm install lessy '
" var lessy = require('lessy'); //get a lessy object, it requires two arguments - output : where you wish your generated css files to be saved - imports : where you keep your other less files( usually in the same as the less folder,if u seprate your less files though(note thats a bad idea generally)),supply the directory path so it can handle less @imports directives var compiler = lessy('./css','./less'); //to watch a single file compiler.sync('./less/style.less'); //supply a second arguments if u wish to rename the file compiler.sync('./less/style.less','styledup.css'); //to watch a directory compiler.syncDir('./less'); //if u wish to change the update timer( the interval it watches the files and folders) compiler.ms = 1000; //make it one second,instead of half the second(500) default time //then startup your compiler compiler.bootup(); "
- capable of watching only a single file - capable of dealing with @import directives by requiring you to specify your location for your less files - capable of watching a directory and updating itself with the lists of files added - a better time based loop
