Less shade()

The Less shade function is used to mix the color with black as you decrease the proportion of the color. The parameters used for shade color operation are:

  • color: It is used to specify a color object.
  • weight: It is an optional parameter that is used to specify weight of the element by providing percentage balance point between color and white.

Shade Function Example

Let's take an example to demonstrate the usage of shade color operation in Less file.

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


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

For example:
