CSS Preprocessors

Basic editing support for Sassy CSS and LESS CSS preprocessor files has been added to Netbeans dev build. The work is still in progress, but the main part is ready to use:

  • syntactic and semantic (parser based) coloring for the language constructs,
  • indentation, simple reformat of code,
  • code folds,
  • file templates

For variables and mixins we provide:

  • go to declaration,
  • mark occurrences,
  • instant rename,
  • code completion (also shows items from imported files),
  • vars, mixins and imported files shown in the navigator,
  • find usages and refactor rename among files.
