Destroy the localStorage copy of less.js client-side-generated CSS
// Destroys the localStorage copy of CSS that less.js creates
function destroyLessCache(pathToCss) { // e.g. '/css/' or '/stylesheets/'
if (!window.localStorage || !less || less.env !== 'development') {
return;
}
var host = window.location.host;
var protocol = window.location.protocol;
var keyPrefix = protocol + '//' + host + pathToCss;
for (var key in window.localStorage) {
if (key.indexOf(keyPrefix) === 0) {
delete window.localStorage[key];
}
}
}

Anyone have a better solution than this? I'm running chrome with the cache disabled, but ideally the development environment should work as expected.

I've tried this code, but my template still using the less files. The error shown "Uncaught ReferenceError: less is not defined". Anyone can help? It is frustating hahaha~
