lesshat - Smart LESS CSS mixins library.

  •    Javascript

To use lesshat, you need node/npm installed then run npm install lesshat --save to install and save lesshat into your package.json. From here, you just need to reference the node_modules/lesshat/lesshat.less within your .less stylesheets. Why lesshat? In August 2012, while we were developing and extending CSS Hat for LESS we needed universal mixins. Unfortunately, none of available were good enough that would satisfy our needs and that’s why we created new custom ones on our own, which have become the most popular mixin library for the whole LESS CSS.

atom-pigments - An Atom package to display colors in project and files.

  •    CoffeeScript

Pigments will scan source files in your project directories looking for colors and will build a palette with all of them. Then for each opened file, it will use the palette to evaluate the value of a given color. The legible source paths can be defined through various settings either at the global or per project level. By default colors in every file will be highlighted, to limit the display of colors to the desired filetype only please see the Defining Where Pigments Applies below. Pigments supports out of the box most of the color transformations functions and expressions of the three biggest CSS pre-processors out there, namely LESS, Sass and Stylus. However, it doesn't mean pigments is able to parse and understand all of these languages constructs. For the moment, Pigments' aim is to support the widest range of usage, even if it implies reducing its ability to parse certain complex constructs. You can refer to the parser specs for an exhaustive list of the supported expressions.

harp - Static Site Server/Generator with built-in preprocessing

  •    Javascript

Harp is a static web server that also serves Jade, Markdown, EJS, Less, Stylus, Sass, and CoffeeScript as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript without any configuration. It supports the beloved layout/partial paradigm and it has flexible metadata and global objects for traversing the file system and injecting custom data into templates. Optionally, Harp can also compile your project down to static assets for hosting behind any valid HTTP server. Pre-compilers are becoming extremely powerful and shipping front-ends as static assets has many upsides. It's simple, it's easy to maintain, it's low risk, easy to scale, and requires low cognitive overhead. I wanted a lightweight web server that was powerful enough for me to abandon web frameworks for dead simple front-end publishing.
