How do I make LessCSS output css which is then uploaded to webserver


Tags: css,netbeans,less

Problem :

I want to use LessCSS for some of its benefits, but I don't want the user to have to download the less.js file or have it do any processing client side - I don't even want to have LessCSS working on my webserver. I'd like to write some Less, push it through LessCSS and then upload the resulting CSS file to the webserver.

Ideally I'd like LessCSS to process the Less file as when I save it in NetBeans and automagically pop out a css file.

Any ideas where to start?



Solution :

Check out SimpLESS. It's a standalone application, but it will monitor a folder for changes in .LESS files and auto compile them into CSS.
