This module allows for tighter integration of NetBeans with LessCSS (using the LessPHP standard). It currently provides syntax highlighting.

This is my first module. There will be improvements to it as I continue to add new features. This is a Beta project currently.

Autocompleting CSS properties

I would like to autocomplete css with this less plugin. I have NB 7.3 and it does not use any of the CSS templates (default or mine own).

Autocompleting CSS properties

IS it possible to autocomplete css properties names and values with this plugin? I can use autocomplete in css files but not in .less files.

Better module for NB 7

This module doesn't work well on Netbeans 7, but there is another plugin: http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/34929/scss-support . This is for SCSS, but correctly-highlights LESS.

Works (for me), but

Works for me in NB 7.1.1
Will it be updated for 7.x?
It's pretty basic (still helpful enough), adding formatting would also be nice a nice start for enhancing this too...

Can't paste from clipboard in NB 7

Get a java.lang.IllegalStateException when trying to paste something from the clipboard into a .less file with this plugin.

Looks like it needs some updating for NB7.

Love the LessCSS

I ran across this module in netbeans and found out about LessCSS, it has cleaned up my CSS and provide so much more power in my ability to build web applications. Keep up the work on this module!! (And update it for NB 7.0)
