The joy of working with dotless

Posted by Daniel Hölbling on November 17, 2009

Ok, I just spent some time on the imagineClub website adding our board’s bio page. The HTML is not really interesting, but since imagineClub was written while dotless was still in development I wrote the CSS the old fashioned way.

Since dotless has reached some maturity I’ve been dogfooding it on imagineClub to make use of the minifier and the caching, but never had any real LESS code in there.
When I had to fix something today I was so happy to be able to write CSS like this:

    width: 414px;
        float: right;
        width: 300px;
        clear: right;
        font-size: @title-fontsize - 4;
        width: 100px;
        margin-bottom: 4px;

This is how CSS was supposed to be, and with dotless it has become just mindlessly easy to do..
