".less" files in design mode

Jul 11, 2011 2:15 AM

Is there any trick that would allow to either edit or at least see the page formatted with ".less" css file in Dreamweaver Design mode or Live View ? The only way I discovered to see the resulting page correctly is to see it directly in a browser. If it's not possible in Dreamweaver then it would pose the "Design" mode usability under question for designers using ".less" css technology.


Or perhaps DW has its own css engine instead of using ".less" (to enable css variables, mixins etc) - but I doubt it.

    I take it you're referring to LESS, the dynamic stylesheet pre-processor language.


    Does Live View in Dreamweaver not work for you?

    Are the files named with a normal file extension?

    Did you ever find the problem causing this as i have the same experience. I know there is a current problem viewing .less using Chrome when the address is a local "file://... " .
