One downside of using Kickstrap is it’s using
.less extension. LESS is a new way to write CSS, introducing variables, operations, and functions. Think about programming language to generate CSS. LESS is compiled to
.less file to CSS using third party app like LESS.app (Mac OS) and WinLess (Windows).
.less is promising, the application and usage in developer community is still yet to be proven. I myself encounters problems with
“That’s ok.”, I convince myself. “I will set up my IIS to host my HTML file that contains link to LESS”. Well, after setting up the a web server (IIS in my case), the default site’s settings are not set to take LESS file extension. To do this, I have to add new MIME type to my site. See this post on how to solve this problem.
The same thing happens to .KS file, a configuration file for each app / theme / bootstrap UI in Kickstrap. I had to set my site’s MIME type to take .KS as well.
Kickstrap is still in beta version (as of this writing) but it’s already look very nice and bright. Whether to use this in your production environment is another question.
