Using LESS for Squarespace 6 CSS Development

Less Dynamic Stylesheet Language

Rumor has it that Squarespace v6 will use LESS (client side method I assume) for CSS developement. Alex Ball at Developer Drive is doing a blog series on how to use LESS and why you will love it. I guess I’ll have to take his word for it.

Today, I’m proud to start a series of posts that will focus on LESS, the dynamic language that takes your CSS and puts it on steroids. LESS let’s you use variables, mixins, nested rules, and even functions within your CSS. It’s extremely powerful and can dramatically speed up your development. There is a little bit of a learning curve to it, but once you wrap your head around it, you won’t type CSS again without using LESS.
