plonetheme.bootstrap integrates Twitter Bootstrap CSS/JS framework into Plone. You can checkout the framework at http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap

It overrides some templates and uses javascript to transform some markup in order for it to work correctly.

It's not perfect, but it's close.



Latest Twitter Bootstrap requires jQuery 1.7.x, you can install it in Plone pinning plone.app.jquery in your buildout to version 1.7.2. You will also need to pin plone.app.jquerytools to version 1.5.1 to guarantee jQuery 1.7.x compatibility:

plone.app.jquery = 1.7.2
plone.app.jquerytools = 1.5.1

Twitter Boostrap itself is provided as browser resources by the addon collective.js.bootstrap.


This product is based in Twitter Bootstrap version 2.3.x.

This product adds both the basic CSS file and also the Responsive one to have a mobile-enabled site from the start.

The generated markup is based on 'fluid CSS' and it contains a 12 column grid.

The basic HTML markup is a mix of plonetheme.sunburst and Twitter Bootstrap and it uses the same approach of constructing the columns as Sunburst Theme: a simple view that returns the classes needed to have the correct column widths.

If you want to change those widths, just override the view following the common Plone overriding patterns.

This product is intended to be used in two scenarios:

  • As a theme from Plone
  • As a base theme to build Plone themes for your site following 'old practices'

Some designers prefer to work following the old best-practices instead of using the Diazo-way-of-theming, this product is for them. You can create a theme package (check templer skeleton generator), and base your theme on this one.

If you have any problem using this product or find any bug, please report it using the GitHub issue tracker.
