LESS Preprocessor (Compilator)

SharkSkin includes an integrated PHP LESS preprocessor, which compiles all .less files into one big minified CSS file on the fly.

  • You can edit the .less files directly via FTP and you don’t need a LESS JS. Evenmore, the LESS preprocessor takes variables from the Magento backend allowing modification of the original parameters by the user (colors, fonts, etc.).
  • The modified parameters are then replaced in the original CSS instead of an inline CSS, which increases greatly the page load speed and reduces the time for development.
  • Fixed header with menu, search, account and shopping cart links available from any page
  • The LESS preprocessor have two modes of caching – normal and aggressive which then reduces greatly the server load and increases the page load speed even more.
