I'm new to LESS, and I ask because I'm looking at a Weebly theme with a main.less file plus variables files for two color variations of the theme - variables_gold.less and variables_black.less.
Each variables file contains the same variables but with different values.
There are no
@import lines in any of these files and no references to the variables files in any output code for the site that I can find. All information I've been able to find about referring to separate variables files involves
@import, so I haven't yet been able to find an answer with general web searches. So does LESS just automatically look for other LESS files in the same directory for any undefined variables in a particular
.less file, or must I conclude that the associations between these files are created through some other aspect of the theme's coding that I haven't found? (There don't appear to be any references to any of the above-mentioned
.less files or any equivalently named
.css files in the theme's HTML files or its output HTML that I can find, either, so I don't see it as just a case of different theme color versions having different HTML pages with different details in their
link rel="stylesheet" lines.)
Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.
