DotLess Ampersand Support

Mar 20, 2012 at 6:31 PM

It appears '&' is breaking the transform less to css.

For example, if less1.chip.less looks like this:


a {
  color: #fff;


then it is correctly compiled in less1.css as:


a { color: white; }


However, if I have an ampersand like this:


a {
  color: #fff;
  &:hover {
    color: #000;

Then less1.css is blank. Is this because this add-in is using an older version of .less?

Thank you.

Thanks for your response. Sorry for the really late reply! I was pulled onto other projects and just got back to this.

I believe the problem is I was using the older version found here: I grabbed the latest one and it works perfectly.
