If you like writing Less instead of CSS, you shouldn’t have to run scripts in your terminal like this is 1992, or install apps that do nothing except babysit your style files.
Crunch 2 is an editor that lets you do what you want. Because Crunch loves you.
Forget Grunt. Forget Gulp. Just write what you like, and save what you need.
Not less stuff, dummy; we mean Less, the CSS preprocessing language. Crunch 1 compiles Less for free, and so does Crunch 2.
See all the @imports for your Less or Stylus project, and nothing else. Until you want to.
Even if you don’t have a file open, Crunch will watch your files and re-compile when needed. How? Magic.
New in Crunch 2: get a running log of Crunch history. (Ha, I just pictured a running log.)
If there’s an error while Crunching a file, you can jump instantly to that line of the file. Pretty much Crunch takes the crown here.
Crunch 2 saves settings in your project, so that compiling won’t create code conflicts. And no one likes conflict.
Crunch 2 is a complete re-write from Crunch 1. We have killed Adobe AIR, and on its corpse we installed a revved-up Chromium V8 engine.
* Just FYI, compiling stuff besides Less requires Crunch 2 Pro. So you’re probably going to want that.
Betas have bugs! If you are the lucky individual who finds one, please report it to: https://github.com/Crunch/Crunch-2/issues. If you want to discuss in greater detail, you can also join the Facebook beta testing group here.
