CSS Class, LESS Variable completion.

CSS Class, LESS Variable completion.

Postby jemware on Wed Aug 15, 2012 5:04 pm

I installed the latest Sublime Text build on a Mac running 10.8
Through Package Installer I installed the LESS syntax. However, now sublime text has stopped suggesting completions for my defined class/id names and LESS variables. I say it has stopped now, because I have not run into this issue on other computers.

Is there a setting for this? Or does Sublime Text 2 handle these kinds of completions differently?


*UPDATE: Solved*

I found the solution here: https://github.com/danro/LESS-sublime/issues/9
It seems that after build 2203 some CSS completions have been introduced that override/block custom variable completion.
(on mac) Go to:
~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/CSS
and remove/move:


And voila, you have custom variable completions back in LESS. You lose some new CSS stuff of course...so there ought to be a better solution out there.

+1 on this issue.

I'm having the same issue - when Set Syntax is in CSS mode - all is fine with suggestions, switch to Less Syntax mode and Sublime will hint for the keyword but not the value..

This totally cripples completion of basic css selectors, like line-height, border-top, etc. Though it does indeed add the autocompletion back for .less files.

Any further resolution to this issue? I just started working with sublime, and having to choose between .less and straight .css syntax completion—when I've got active projects using both—is maybe a deal breaker for me :(
