Use All the LESS CSS Powers Directly in Dreamweaver!

  • Variables - Variables allow you to specify widely used values in a single place, and then re-use them throughout the style sheet, making global changes as easy as changing one line of code. 

  • Mixins - A Mixin in LESS is basically a common group of CSS properties grouped into one, which can then be inserted into various other LESS selectors. You can think of it like a variable, with several different properties.

  • Nested Rules - Rather than constructing long selector names to specify inheritance, in Less you can simply nest selectors inside other selectors. This makes inheritance clear and style sheets shorter.

  • Functions & Operations - Operations let you add, subtract, divide and multiply property values and colors, giving you the power to create complex relationships between properties. Operations should only be performed within parentheses in order to ensure compatibility with CSS. Functions map one-to-one with JavaScript code, allowing you to manipulate values however you want.
