I need to compile CSS.less files, however node.js is very resource-consuming which therefore cannot be used in our current hosted account. To work on themes, documentation recommends to change mode to client side compilation. Accordingly, asides node.js what do I need installed on windows 10, and how do the revisions take effect once I switch to server side compilation as I move from development mode to production mode?
Accordingly, stylesheet revisions when frontend development workflow is set to server side throws errors, and when switching to client side less compilation it also produces errors, however when switched back again to server side less compilation, the edits do "compile", even though this seems like an atrocious way to go about doing this. This is unclear exactly how the CSS is being compiled.
All I need are minor revisions to a template which should be done by inspecting elements in the browser, and then making the revisions in the less files or by adding a custom css file when needed.
