Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting site preferences for Less and Sass, part of Dreamweaver CC New Features.
- [Instructor] For some time now, Dreamweaver has supported…editing source files for the two most popular…CSS preprocessors, Less and Sass,…but this version of Dreamweaver also compiles them…without the need to install extra software.…The preferences for Sass and Less…are set on a site-by-site basis,…so we need to edit the site definition.…So go to Site, Manage Sites, select the site…that you want to edit, then click this pencil icon,…and then we need to select CSS Preprocessors…from the list on the left, and then, first, General.…
The General panel has options for both Less and Sass.…Just select those that are relevant…to whichever preprocessor you're using.…By default, Dreamweaver automatically compiles…the CSS output whenever you save a Less or Sass file.…If you don't want that to happen,…you need to deselect this checkbox.…You can then initiate compilation manually…from the Tools menu, or by pressing F9.…There are four options for Less,…all of which are deselected by default.…
The first two, Enable strict math and Enable strict units,…
