  4. Update

With this extension, you can use Less CSS files with registerCSSFile.

The code is based on zsoltlengyelits, LessCSS-for-Yii extension. I've updated it so,

  • it uses the assetsfolder defined by CAssetmanager
  • You have a global caching setting, instead of per file
  • Updated to the latest lessc parser which includes a compress css feature
  • It uses CClientscript to register the outputted css automatically

Requirements

Yii 1.1 or above

Usage

Copy the folder to your extension folder (protected/extensions).

Extend CClientscript:

'components' => array(
        'clientScript' => array(
            'class' => 'ext.LessClientscript.LClientscript',
            'caching' => true, //use the cached css file if available
            'compress' => false, //remove whitespace and linearize to 1 line
		)
	);

Done!

Now you can add it in your view or controller:

Yii::app()->clientScript->registerCSSFile('src/app/admin/stylesheets/test.less');
