Less CSS - Tips and Trics

Less is declarative language designed to behave and look as closely to css as possible. Less started as an attempt to make css style sheets easier to read and maintain and then added more features and abilities. It evolved so much that it became theoretically possible to do anything with it.

This post shows some less known but very useful less features. It also contains list of potentially useful workarounds and tricks you can use if the default less syntax is not sufficient for what you need. Finally, last chapter shows one practical application of those tricks. We will create mixin to auto generate vendor prefixes for css declarations.
