Passing Rulesets to Mixins

You have to define the structure of the mixins where you want to pass the ruleset. A normal detached ruleset contains ordinary rulesets like properties, nested rulesets, variable declaration, mixins etc. It is stored in a variable and included into other structure that copies all the rulesets.

Let's take an example to demonstrate how to pass rulesets to mixins in Less files.

Create a HTML file named "simple.html", having the following data.

HTML file: simple.html

Now create a file named "simple.less". It is similar to CSS file. The only one difference is that it is saved with ".less" extension.

Less file: simple.less

Put the both file "simple.html" and "simple.less" inside the root folder of Node.js

Now, execute the following code: lessc simple.less simple.css

passing rulesets to mixins1

This will compile the "simple.less" file. A CSS file named "simple.css" will be generated.

For example:

passing rulesets to mixins2

The generated CSS "simple.css", has the following code:

Output:

passing rulesets to mixins3
