LessTif was a free software reimplementation or clone of the Motif computer programming toolkit, developed by the Hungry Programmers.
As opposed to Motif, which was distributed until October 2012 under a proprietary license that could require the payment of royalties, LessTif was distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). The licence of Motif was the main motivation for the development of LessTif.

LessTif aimed for full source and binary code compatibility with Motif. While this was not achieved, many Motif applications run with LessTif and/or can be compiled with it.
LessTif has had no code commits since 2009. It was finally superseded by the release of the original Motif toolkit under an open-source licence in 2012.
