CJSS vs Less: What are the differences?

What is CJSS? A CSS based web framework. First off, everything happens in your CSS file. You can layer this into your websites as you see fit. You can use this to layer on just a little bit more functionality in your CSS here and there or construct an entire page.

What is Less? The dynamic stylesheet language. Less is a CSS pre-processor, meaning that it extends the CSS language, adding features that allow variables, mixins, functions and many other techniques that allow you to make CSS that is more maintainable, themable and extendable.

CJSS and Less can be categorized as "CSS Pre-processors / Extensions" tools.

CJSS and Less are both open source tools. Less with 16.1K GitHub stars and 3.45K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than CJSS with 659 GitHub stars and 19 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to CJSS and Less?
        Sass
        Sass is an extension of CSS3, adding nested rules, variables, mixins, selector inheritance, and more. It's translated to well-formatted, standard CSS using the command line tool or a web-framework plugin.
        Animate.css
        It is a bunch of cool, fun, and cross-browser animations for you to use in your projects. Great for emphasis, home pages, sliders, and general just-add-water-awesomeness.
        PostCSS
        PostCSS is a tool for transforming CSS with JS plugins. These plugins can support variables and mixins, transpile future CSS syntax, inline images, and more.
        Stylus
        Stylus is a revolutionary new language, providing an efficient, dynamic, and expressive way to generate CSS. Supporting both an indented syntax and regular CSS style.
        Compass
        The compass core framework is a design-agnostic framework that provides common code that would otherwise be duplicated across other frameworks and extensions.
