Description

What you’ll learn

  • You will be able to use the application SimpLess to easily compile your less files into beautiful CSS
  • You will be able to write and easily maintain object-oriented CSS with variables, mixins and functions
  • You will understand how to work faster with mixin libraries such as the Semantic Grid and LESS elements that includes a collection of the most commonly mixins

What is LESS ?

Less is a CSS is a superset of CSS and a pre-processor programming language, often referred as “Dynamic CSS“.

  • LESS syntax is modelled after traditional CSS
  • LESS compiles into standard CSS3
  • LESS allows you to extend your CSS with great features such as :
    • Variables for faster maintenance
    • Mixins as re-usable objects
    • Nesting for a cleaner stylesheet structure
    • Math calculations with the Operators.
  • Less code and more work done !

Why use LESS ?

While CSS is a great language, it has its limitations.

For example, if you have a color code used multiple times in your stylesheet, you need to edit this one multiple times to update your design. Very tedious process!

LESS is great for the following reasons. :

  • Allows to cut down one code and save time
  • Reduce repetition (DRY) and mistakes
  • It makes logical sense to break out CSS into multiple files with the feature

Every web developer or front-end UI engineer should use LESS over traditional CSS

=> What you will learn:

In the first section, you will :

  • learn how to define Variables for faster maintenance.
  • learn how to declare Mixins as reusable objects
  • learn about Nesting for a cleaner stylesheet structure.
  • learn how to perform mathematical calculations with the Operators

On a more advanced level, we will discuss about:

  • Built-in functions
  • Parametized and Guarded mixins
  • The @import directive to include external stylesheets in one single document.

In a last chapter, you will apply what you have learned with a hand-on project.

=> The objectives of this course is to help you

  • create smarter and cleanerer stylesheets,
  • cut down on code,
  • keep your code DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself) and organized.

=> By the end of the course,

  1. you will understand how to use the LESS features and compile the less stylesheets into standard CSS
  2. you will understand how to easily integrate mixins libraries as well as external resources such as Font Awesome and Google Font into your project.
  3. You will also be able to install and use the application SimpLESS to compile your less files into beautiful CSS.
    1. SimpLESS is a GUI application for Less and Sass compilation.
    2. SimpLESS is simple to learn for first-time users and it is compatible with both PC and MAC.

    In Getting Started with LESS, learn to take your CSS to the next level and write better styling code. With several demonstrations and examples. you will see the power of the pre-processor language.

      Who this course is for:

      • Any beginner making their first steps with a pre-processor language
      • Anyone willing to work on the client-side – NO knowledge of the command lines or server configuration is required
      • Some coding skills are required for the best learning experience

      1. Donny Phan

        Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

      2. Madhav raj Verma

        Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

      3. Sachin Gupta

        I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

        Amazing 40 days course.
        Angela is a great teacher.
        The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
        This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

        Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

      5. Ben K

        Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

      6. Omid Alikhel

        I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

      7. Devang Jain

        The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

      8. Szymon Kozak

        I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

      9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

        Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

      10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

        I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
