Project Manager's Developer API

Sometimes I get the feeling, that all a project manager wants is this API:

LESS is more!

The dynamic stylesheet language less has been around for about 4 years now. It is not just a pre-processor anymore. With all initiatives to make native support for less in browsers possible, you must agree with me that it has earned a place in modern websites. I will try to make it appealing to you, so you can see, why you should be using less.  I will show you then an easy way to integrate less into your web application using maven. So if you still have some doubts about the power of less, here are some quick reasons why you will be wanting to use it:


less allows you to define variables. You can do something like:

@myShadeOfGrey: #999999;

# header {
    color: @myShadeOfGrey;
h2 {
    color: @myShadeOfGrey;

and you will be able to try some other colors changing just one line of code.
