Less color

Education is not limited to just classrooms. It can be gained anytime, anywhere... - Ravi Ranjan (M.Tech-NIT)

Less color()

It is a string which parses and represents colors. It can be set as a background color or foreground color of the element. The color values specify the color of the element.

Let's take an example to demonstrate the usage of color function in the Less file.

Create a HTML file named ?simple.html?, having the following data.

HTML file: simple.html

  1. <!DOCTYPE html>  
  2. <head>  
  3.    <link rel="stylesheet" href="simple.css" type="text/css" />  
  4. </head>  
  5. <body>  
  6.    <h2 class="style">Welcome to JavaTpoint</h2>  
  7.    <p class="style">A solution of all technology.</p>  
  8. </body>  
  9. </html>  

Now create a file named "simple.less". It is similar to CSS file. The only one difference is that it is saved with ".less" extension.

Less file: simple.less

  1. .style{  

  2. color:(green)  

  3. };   

Put the both file "simple.html" and "simple.less" inside the root folder of Node.js

Now, execute the following code: lessc simple.less simple.css

Less color function1

This will compile the "simple.less" file. A CSS file named "simple.css" will be generated.

For example:

Less color function2

The generated CSS "simple.css", has the following code:

  1. .style {  

  2.   color: green;  

  3. }   

Output
