Another .less file watcher, but this time with:

  • Dependency tracking (if a file imported by other files changes, they get compiled).
  • Growl notifications (a notification with summary shows up after each time something is compiled).


$ npm install autoless -g
$ autoless --help

Pausing and resuming

You can pause watching files by creating a .lessignore file in your source directory (the one with .less files). When the file is removed, watching is resumed.

You can use that e.g. in Git's pre-rebase and post-rewrite hooks to avoid confusing Git when rebasing.
