does anyone know if a language module for bbEdit exists for the less format? It would be nice if the code folding features of the editor incorporated the nesting features of the less format.

    Its not a perfect workaround, but if you change your language mapping to
    javascript you get the code folding functionality, but you do lose code

    I just opened a new repo on github. For the beginning its more a copy-and-paste-work and the only thing I added on my own was the less comment style.
    It still lacks proper code-folding as well as recognizing the vendor prefixes -o- and -ms-, but when i have more time, I'm going to work on it again.
