LESS Engines

Requirements

LESS requires at least one of three possible engines available:

  • oyejorge/less.php *

    This is a pure PHP implementation, which is good for shared hosting, or if you don't feel comfortable
    installing or configuring software on your server.

    It lacks the ability to execute javascript embedded in .less files, so some LESS libraries might not work.

    Requirements:

    1. Libraries
    2. oyejorge/less.php installed such that Less.php is located at sites/all/libraries/less.php/Less.php

Drupal Remote Dashboard (and Server)

The Drupal Remote Dashboard (DRD) is a module for system administrators to monitor and manage any number of Drupal installations at once and it's built to be extensible by other modules.

For example, DRD enables you to place all your monitored sites into Maintenance mode, Clear the cache, run Cron or update.php.

Overriding the basic gift pages with views

As the basic module is very strict with hardcoded lists and displays for the "buy-a-gift"-phase, you might want to use views for customized displays.
