LessCSS is a language designed to build advanced CSS3 visualization.

CSS3 has many options but it has a low degree of re-usability. LessCSS is a language designed to replace/complement CSS3.

LessCSS is in fact a Javascript program. It can run in any browser, even in any server, if it is required. It allows to use LessCSS directly as native stylesheets. LessCSS allows to define functions, variables, and reuse parts. It has also connectors to be integrated into NodeJS servers, or other technologies like GruntJS or Ruby.

LessCSS is compatible with CSS3, in other words, any CSS3 code is a LessCSS valid code. It will makes easy to use to any designer.
