Sublime Text 2 and .less Syntax Highlighting

So you've hopped onto the Sublime Text 2 bandwagon and ready to roll with {less}. Now you simply want to enable syntax highlighting while working on .less files...right? Well, it's actually quite simple!

First, open a .less file in Sublime Text 2. Then View > Syntax > Open all with current extension as... > CSS

OR...

After originally publishing this, of course I stumble across a github project called Less-sublime. Using the Package Control plugin, it's an absolute breeze to setup. Even if you don't, simply follow the installation directions on the github project.

So there you go...two methods for getting {less} syntax highlighting for you! Either way works great, but obviously the github project offers a bit more {less}-specific syntax support.

Hope that helps...cheers!

@Matt,

I'm finding myself using it more than I thought I would...I still use Dw for some things though. However, I rarely launch CF Builder anymore. Glad you put me onto this!

Cheers!

I've been using it this week and like it. Y'all need to install the Zen Coding package.

If you haven't already check out https://github.com/SublimeText/ColdFusion also available via Package Control.

Perfect! Just what I was looking for. Installed in a snap with Package Control!

Many Thanks,
Nick

Great but I wonder how I can edit my theme so that lines with // turn grey like normal css comments?

@artdog: You can also try this syntax highlighter specifically created for .LESS files:

If anyone is wondering, the installation through Package Control is not working but no problem, you just need to download the latest version, unzip on you "Packages" directory and rename it to "LESS", restart sublime and you're ready to rock.

Sometimes Legal documentation are most valuable but some time these documents are just peace of papers. Same as a degree having great value for that person which is winner of this degree but same degree having zero value when the achiever of the same degree are died. It means every thing have a value on time with the passage of time they become zero.
