LESS / SASS in Metro style apps? RRS feed

  • Question

  • After a couple test apps, I'm starting to look at CSS as the weakest link: The lack of variables means a lot of repetition of colors, selectors, and property declarations. I've used LESS before for ASP.NET MVC projects, and I'm wondering if anyone has used it for Metro apps? If so, does it work nicely with VS11 or Blend? I'd like to at least have variables for colors, but if it's going to cause more problems than it solves I'll stick with what I've got.

  • Hi Ted,

    This is just a js library so as long as it isn't doing something that would keep it from running properly it should work.  I am aware of a few people who have used various libraries without issue so give it a shot and report back if you don't hear from someone else that has tried this!
