Verifications for NetBeans versions

Plugin is not subject to any verification


This module is to allow for tighter integration of netbeans with LessCSS (using the LessPHP standard). Note: I'm merely re-compiling this module to be compatible with Netbeans 7.0. The original plugin can be found at http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/32782

Unable to add /* comments */

Any idea why I am unable to add comments in the format /* comment */ ? I'm pretty new to LESS, I'm not sure if it's something I'm overlooking, but netbeans literally won't let me type these two characters next to each other.

Note to cieszak... I just leave WinLess running in the background and Less files are compiled as soon as they are saved. Works great and even tracks dependencies (i.e. any less file that includes the file just saved gets compiled also). It'd be nice if it were integrated into NetBeans but WinLess will do.

Unable to do a block comment like /* this is a comment */

First of all, thanks for the plugin. It'll do until Less highlighting is native to NetBeans.

One big problem. It won't let me do a block comment like /* this */. I'll type the "/" and can't get it to give me an "*". I can't even paste a block comment from the clipboard.

If you can fix this, you're golden. Thanks!

OnSave Less compilation

Thanks for this great plugin!

Is it possible to add compiler for less?
dotlesscss or other from https://github.com/cloudhead/less.js/wiki/Command-Line-use-of-LESS
(I have Windows)

It may compile less file after save, or somethng like this

Working great on 7.1.1

Thank for this plugin.
It makes writing css with less so much easier.

It doesn't accept the '&' operator but that's not a big deal.

Workings pretty well

Using 7.1.1 it works great for me under most circumstances.

Want help?

I would like to help but couldn't find clear docs on how to setup a netbeans plugin development environment.
I use Linux. Do you have some recommendations?

Still have problems with Netbeans 7.0.1

I understand that there are still problems around this plugin with NB7.0.1. Please file the issues here. Will try to look into it when I can. I will also look into killermonk's issues list at his bitbucket's issue list.
