Automatic compilation of modified LESS files.

Project description

# lesswatch

Watches LESS files, and automatically compiles them when they
are changed.

## Usage

$ lesswatch <DIR>

## Installation

pip install lesswatch


git clone
cd lesswatch
python install

## External Dependencies

lesswatch used the [lessc compiler](
and it must be on the PATH.

First you need to download and install node.js. Download the latest
stable version of [node.js]( and
extract the contents from the archive: `tar xf node-v0.4.12.tar.gz`.


$ cd node-v0.4.12
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

Then you need to install LESS:

$ npm install -g less

Try `lessc` to see if this was successful:

$ which lessc
$ echo "body { color: red; }" > test.less
$ lessc test.less
body {
color: red;
