Not natively that I know of - but you can just manually compile your .less from the command line? Then just move the resulting css file to the correct directory in your app.

Hi
Thanks for your reply.I would have liked to use splunk with less on client side ... But ok, I compile my .less file to .css from the command line and it works fine. Just for info : due to my enterprise policy, I'm not able to install software on my computer. But I achieved this by installing Node.js via portable Apps, configuring the proxy in .npmrc file and then installing less using this command : "npm install less". Using "lessc my_less_file.less my_css_file.css" is compiling the css file.

Happy new year 🙂
