Yii Less Extension gives a VERY simple and straight forward way to include LESS files in your Yii view files. Yii Less Extension adds a method to the CClientScript class, namely registerLessFile which is very similary to the registerCssFile method, to directly link LESS files in your Yii view files.

Requirements

Requires Yii 1.1 or above.

Usage

  • Download and extract the extension package to protected/extensions directory of your application.
  • Make the following modifications to your protected/config/main.php under the components section of the config: ~~~ <?php return array(

      // .....
      'components'=>array(
          // .....
          'clientScript' => array(
              'class' => 'ext.yii-less-extension.components.YiiLessCClientScript',
              'cache' => true, // Optional parameter to enable or disable LESS File Caching
          ),
          // .....
      ),
      // .....
    

    ), ?> ~~~

  • In any of your view files just include your less file using Yii::app()->clientScript->registerLessFile("full-or-relative-path-to-your-less-file/style.less");

Examples

  • Adding the following in your layouts/main.php will render <web-application-root>/less-files/site.less file as site.css delivered from your assets. ~~~ <?php Yii::app()->clientScript->registerLessFile(Yii::getPathOfAlias("less-files/site.less")); ?> ~~~

  • The following code will render its corresponding CSS as shown ~~~ <?php Yii::app()->clientScript->registerLess('sample-less', ' body {

      padding: 0px;
      .container {
          margin: 10px;
      }
    

    } '); ?> ~~~ generates: ~~~

      padding: 0px;
    

    } body .container {

      margin: 0px;
    

    } /]]>/ ~~~
