LESS - Merge Space


Advertisements

Description

The Merge Space feature adds property value with space.

Example

The following example demonstrates the use of the merge space feature in the LESS file −

<!doctype html>
   <head>
      <title>Merge Space</title>
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "style.css" type = "text/css" />
   </head>

   <body>
      <h2>Example of Merge Space</h2>
      <p class = "class">Hello World!!!Welcome to Tutorialspoint...</p>
   </body>
</html>

Next, create the style.less file.

style.less

.mixin() {
   transform+_: scale(1);
}

.class {
   .mixin();
   transform+_: rotate(2deg);
}

The merge uses + or +_ flag to keep away from the unexpected joins on each join. The transform property modifies the space of CSS formatting model and can be used to rotate, scale, move, etc and perform other functions on elements.

You can compile the style.less to style.css by using the following command −

lessc style.less style.css

Execute the above command, it will create the style.css file automatically with the following code −

style.css

.class {
   transform: scale(1) rotate(2deg);
}

Output
