On to a new project, learned tonnes on the last one. - Ive started with a fresh install and am having a look at the variables.less file.
maybe a silly question but when i make changes to it, nothing happens to my site.
do i have to enable something somewhere?
thanks in advance.

Were you using Grunt in your previous project? If not read through this post (the screencast is also well worth considering). You just need to recompile the LESS using the terminal via grunt from the theme root or run grunt watch if you want it to rebuild automatically.

There are quite a few other tips if you look in the workflow category too.

i installed it in the root folder as per the 101, and ran npm install. but I didnt use any of the less files.

also upon starting this project I see I missed one thing … typing grunt!, - its doing its thing now, great!!
