            Absolutely fantastic, not only does it allow for modularity but it is armed with the most useful features like colour operations and nested styles to make you achive more by writing LESS.

            Customise the UIkit Front-End Framework, because of that is used to create the application CSS. I prefer SASS but is equivalent.

            Sass library that was originally used on the current JourneyMaker app. We've been slowly removing it from the front end.

            We use Less to organize our CSS code with imports, variables, mixins, and more.
