Recommend reviewing code using?w=1, and doing like-for-like comparisons with preview.

  • Start using admin gem which bundles jQuery, Bootstrap, environment indicator and default application layout
  • Upgrade from Bootstrap 2 to Bootstrap 3
  • Upgrade formtastic, formtastic-bootstrap, chosen and jQuery UI
  • Use a select2 gem for assets
  • Update markup to conform with newest bootstrap patterns
    • Replace grid classes on form elements with appropriate grid wrappers
    • Formtastic picks up most of the form changes, but for forms not using it:
      • Switch from controls to form-group, and ensure there's a form-control class on inputs
    • Add missing -default classes to default buttons and alerts
    • Use Bootstrap 3 kaminari themes for pagination
    • Switch to using Bootstrap 3 glyphicons
  • Update flash messages for new Bootstrap 3 alerts
