Dropping SASS for LESS

I’ve been asked in interviews, “which one I prefer and why?”, however I’ve never really had a reason for choosing SASS over LESS apart from I found SASS first! They’re both pretty similar and they’re both really useful.

However, now I’m starting to find reasons with the packages I’m using more frequently.

As I’m moving forward with my Laravel work, I’m finding it an annoying process to administer installing RVM (ruby version manager) and then run gem install sass. With LESS, I can install it with npm (Node Package Manager) and boom, I can code on.

Also, it’s what Twitter Bootstrap is built in, so I can use LESS with “less” pain.

So, for simplicity’s sake, I’m moving to LESS, but thank you SASS, it’s been great.
