Blank-Bootstrap

Blank scaffold for OctoberCMS which includes Twitter Bootstrap, jQuery and Font Awesome. Built using Less.

Replace theme-dir with whatever fits the site you're building.

Activating the theme

Where name is whatever you specified in theme:install.

Post installation

You can choose for yourself how you add your own styling. My recommendation is creating a subdirectory in assets/less for the project you're building. This theme ships with assets/less/site - keep it or delete it.

Customizing Bootstrap

Customize Bootstrap variables by adding them in assets/less/twbs/custom-variables.less

Choose which Less components you wish to include in assets/less/twbs/custom-components.less

JavaScript

Choose which Bootstrap jQuery plugins you wish to include in the layout file (layouts/default.htm). To minimize the file size, you should only include the plugins you actually will be using.

This theme includes the @framework and @framework.extras JS assets in the layout file. They can be removed unless you actually will be using them.

Removing Font Awesome

  • Remove @import statement in assets/less/app.less
  • Delete directory assets/less/fa
  • Delete directory assets/vendor/font-awesome

Other files

README.md may be deleted.

version.yaml may be deleted.

theme.yaml should be emptied (not deleted).

assets/images/theme-preview.png should either be deleted or replaced with a screenshot of your final theme.

This scaffold also includes the @jquery, @framework and @framework.extras JS assets in layouts/default.htm which can be removed unless you're planning on using them.

Consult the official documentation for more information on theme development.
