I had no idea, until seeing this article on css-tricks, that there are these css preprocessors that exist which allow you write in a css-esque language and then load the dynamically generated css to the page on-load. Back when I used to actually do web stuff on a massive scale, Internet Explorer 7 was still new and Firefox was version 2. CSS was primitive and HTML4 was the latest available HTML edition. HTML5 was nothing more than a rumor of an awesome future. Table layouts were common and div-float layouts were viciously attacked.
Coming to a close with this post, I would like to say that my favoriate features of LESS are the nested classes, class extension, and variables. I could do without the functions and if/else bit of it, but since it’s there I might as well use it when appropriate. Like anything, there’s things you like and things that you imagine you can go without. Going without LESS is possible, but why make things harder on yourself when you can do less!
