Console Chirpy does not minify .less files

Dec 6, 2011 at 11:54 AM


We have recently started using the Console Chirpy, but it now appears that .less files only go through the LessEngine, but not through the YuiCssEngine. I have tried with file names .chirp.less and .yui.less, but in both cases files are not minified. 

YuiCssEngine -- ..\res\css\Currency.chirp.css
YuiCssEngine -- ..\res\css\customIE6.chirp.css
YuiCssEngine -- ..\res\css\customIE7.chirp.css
YuiCssEngine -- ..\res\css\jquery-ui-1.8.13.custom.chirp.css
YuiCssEngine -- ..\res\css\realtime-calendar.chirp.css
LessEngine -- ..\res\css\corpzone.chirp.less // => output unminified 'corpzone.css'
LessEngine -- ..\res\css\Generic2.chirp.less // => output unminified 'Generic2.css'

Because the file name is rename and .chirp is removed, I also can't put 2 lines below each other to minify after the LessEngine. 

How can I change this so that it does minify?

Fix for LessEngine; it should always output expanded CSS.

Probably fix your problem.

It is already spitting out expanded CSS, but I'm looking for the minimized stuff... We're using the console version via a build script. 


I have created a work around now, by manually running the YUI CSS engine after the Chirpy stuff for a particular file. But it's is not ideal in the case that new files get added.
