Require and intanciate the watcher with the desired arguments: ` var LessTreeWatcher = require('less-tree-watch').LessTreeWatcher; watcher = new LessTreeWatcher('less', 'css', [ '-x', '--yui-compress' ]);

Now you can run watcher.watchTree() to watch your LESS tree or watcher.compileTree() to just compile once.
