LESS CSS completion and compiling

I am wondering what support you have for less css and completion and compiing?  I am working on using twitter boostrap but don't know how that works within PHPstorm.  Do I need a seperate compiler?  Does phpstorm auto complete for less variables referenced in other .less files?  


Hi Dan,

I'm not sure twitter bootstrap and .less have anything to do with each other.

Autocompletion (.less) works in same file only. At least that has been my experience.

PHPStorm currently does not have a .less compiler, but while developing I find it easy to use a javascript, (less.js) then compile on the staging or production server. Seems like I read that better .less suport is on the roadmap for PHPStorm 5.


Hi Dan. At the moment PhpStorm provides completion for selectors only. Completion for mixins (including imported mixins), variables, nested element etc. will be implemented. Feel free to vote for appropriate issues:
