Description

LESS is a dynamic stylesheet language designed by Alexis Sellier. It is influenced by Sass and has influenced the newer "SCSS" syntax of Sass, which adapted its CSS-like block formatting syntax.

 
LESS is open-source. Its first version was written in Ruby, however in the later versions, use of Ruby has been deprecated and replaced by JavaScript. The indented
syntax of Less is a nested metalanguage, as valid CSS is valid Less code with the same semantics.
 
LESS provides the following mechanisms: variables, nesting, mixins, operators and functions.
 
LESS can run on the client-side (Internet Explorer 6+, WebKit, Firefox) and server-side, with Node.js or Rhino (JavaScript engine).
