README

Automatically creates a single .css file from a collection of .less files using lessphp

Much thanks to jtgrimes for the less4laravel packages, upon which most of this package is based: https://github.com/jtgrimes/less4laravel

More thanks due to leafo for the lessphp packages, which this package would be useless without: https://github.com/leafo/lessphp

Installation

Add zanemiller/less-one as a requirement to composer.json:

{
    "require": {
        "zanemiller/less-one": "0.2.*"
    }
}

Run the composer update utility with composer update or install with composer install

You now register the package with Laravel. Open app/config/app.php and add find the providers section and add:

'Zanemiller\LessOne\LessOneServiceProvider'

Next find the aliases section and add:

    'LessOne' => 'Zanemiller\LessOne\LessOneFacade'

To use LessOne with the default settings you will also have to create three folders (if they do not already exist in your project).

In the /app folder create two folders called css and less respectivly.

Finally in /public create a folder called css

So your final file structure should include:

/app
    /css
    /less
/public
    /css

Configuration

First publish a copy of the configuration file with Aritisan:

$ php artisan config:publish zanemiller/less-one

The settings files can now be found in /app/config/packages/zanemiller/less-one/config.php

The details of the configuration file can be found in: https://github.com/ZaneMiller/LessOne/wiki/Usage

Usage

LessOne couldn't be easier to use simply call:

LessOne::make()

Where you want the <link> tag to be inserted in your view.
