What is Less?
Who uses Less?
Why developers like Less?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Less in their tech stack.
ReactQL is written in TypeScript to provide full types/Intellisense, and pick up hard-to-diagnose goofs that might later show up at runtime. React makes heavy use of Webpack 4 to handle transforming your code to an optimised client-side bundle, and in throws back just enough code needed for the initial render, while seamlessly handling
import statements asynchronously as needed, making the payload your user downloads ultimately much smaller than trying to do it by hand.
React Helmet was chosen to handle
<head> content, because it works universally, making it easy to throw back the correct
<title> and other tags on the initial render, as well as inject new tags for subsequent client-side views.
<style> tags when using #StyledComponents.
React Router handles routing, because it works both on the server and in the client. ReactQL customises it further by capturing non-200 responses on the server, redirecting or throwing back custom 404 pages as needed.
Koa is the web server that handles all incoming HTTP requests, because it's fast (TTFB < 5ms, even after fully rendering React), and its natively #async, making it easy to async/await inside routes and middleware.
Which #GridFramework to use? My team and I closed on Bootstrap !
On a related note and as far as stylesheets go, we had to chose between #CSS, #SCSS, #Sass , Less Finally opted for Sass
As syntactically awesome as the name announces it.
We in our #Frontend team prefer to use the modern and clean syntax of #CSS instead of Sass or Less. On bundle step, we use post-processing by PostCSS to add prefixes, minify code, uploading assets and more. PostCSS get CSS more powerful, it‘s a fantastic tool.
love me some less. been less styling for around 3 years. makes working with bootstrap and responsive website a breeze. so much power in the language. Less
