  • Why Bootstrap 3 and not Bootstrap 4? -- Because v3 is last stable and v4 is still alpha version.

  • dependencies managed by Yarn and Bower
  • Font Awesome and Font Lato included
  • prepared theme config file
  • no other plugin dependency


Bootstrap 3 Sass theme is made with bootstrap-sass library, which is official Sass port of Bootstrap 3 framework by Twitter.

Sass compiling

Sass compiling is fully automatic. Just make change at your Sass files, save and reload your website.

For local development be sure, that you have cms.enableAssetDeepHashing config set to true!

At production you can set cms.enableAssetMinify to true for assets minification.

Configure Bootstrap

You can find main file at /assets/sass/site.scss. This is the place where you should import all Sass files.

Bootstrap Sass components are imported at /assets/sass/_settings.scss - just uncommend component you need. Always use only component you really need to make your CSS smaller and your sites faster.

Bootstrap JS components are linked at the bottom of layout /layouts/default.htm. Please comment/delete lines you don't need.

At /assets/sass/_settings.scss you can find all Bootstrap configuration variables which can be changed. It's also great place for your own variables. It will override default Bootstrap variables, so it's means you always compile customized version of Bootstrap!

Theme variables

Theme config file is placed at /fields.yaml. Just add your own variables and use it in the theme:

{{ this.theme.site_title }}

Variables can be changed at Backend > CMS > Themes > Customize.

Add new font

  • place your font to /assets/fonts directory
  • create new Sass file at /assets/sass/fonts
  • import this font Sass file to /assets/sass/site.scss like this:
@import "fonts/font-awesome";


You can update theme dependencies by yourself, but it's not neccesary.

  • update npm by yarn update or npm update
  • update assets by bower update

    Wow, this is weird, I never seen exception like that. I tried fresh installation now, with build 424 and works well. Maybe your PHP settings is too strict? Let me know at vojtasvoboda.cz(at)gmail(.)com
