Early Access Program Features

What’s mining: Leaner CSS in RubyMine

Hello guys,

Today are going to show you a brand new feature of RubyMineLESS support. Information about this language can be found here.  LESS coding has never been so easy!

What’s in?

  • LESS syntax highlighting
  • On-the-fly syntax checking
  • All the brilliant CSS editing features are available for LESS as well
  • LESS variables support with code completion, one click go to declaration, usages search and rename refactoring!

Why LESS, you may ask? As far as we are making our decisions on new functionality using your votes, we know that many of you are already using LESS as an alternative to CSS in your every day coding. We’ve got quite a few votes for LESS support: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/RUBY-4419 and voila — it is here!

Also, we are working hard on Sassy CSS support: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/RUBY-5874

P.S. All this cool staff will be available in coming Early Access Preview build of RubyMine 2.5 and also in new versions of other JetBrains IDEs such as IntelliJ IDEA, PhpStorm and WebStorm.

Develop with pleasure!
-JetBrains RubyMine Team
