LessWatcher
An easy to use, globally installable .less compiler and watcher.
usage: lesswatcher [options]
options:
-h, --help              Print help (this message) and exit.
-d, --directory         Set input directory - where your .less files are located
-o, --output            Set output directory - this is relative to your the directory
where less files are generated from.
-b, --build-only        Performs a build and exits
Example:
lesswatcher -d=styles/less -o=../css
Alternative, a lesswatcher.config file can be placed in the directory where you are calling it from to specify a set of options. For example the following content in lesswatcher.config will set the corresponding options:
{
directory: "styles/less",
output: "../css"
}

About

Most of this project is simply a shorthand to Guilherme Dupont's work on less-monitor. It depends on less-monitor and less to perform all the hard work. I just wanted a quick-and-dirty command that I could run from the CLI without having to set loads of options. Additionally the use of a config file was a feature I thought was necessary.
