Re: LESS/ SASS/... style usage in GWT ?

With HexaCss for GWT, you can use Sass, Less, Susy, Foundation, Bootstrap and so on. For the programmer you use it the same kind of way as CssResource/ClientBundle, but then you bind your application to external CSS files, and thus can use any CSS Framework. You should have a try !

This is what i use to quickly wrap an existing CSS Framework (bootstrap, skeleton, ...) or to use my own Less or Sass or GSS stylesheet

That might be a dumb question but:

If I don't need theme switcher support then HexaCss doesn't really add any value or does it? I mean I can just generate/use a css file from any css framework / css preprocessor and then create a matching CssResource for its content. Then GWT will do the rest.

So it seems to me that HexaCss is just about dynamic themes while still having some css pruning and minification?
