Bootstrap Theme Kit: Make your own Bootstrap Themes
This is simple starter project to help you get started quickly when making a custom Bootstrap theme.

This readme is the short version of that.
What this project does
This repository includes a project structure with a build script that builds a custom CSS version of Bootstrap 4, using Gulp. You can clone this repository, run the Gulp task and go right into modifying variables and adding styles. There's also an HTML file that contains a neatly organized collection of Bootstrap components that fit a 1920x1080 display, so you can instantly see the outcome.
There is a short demonstration of this project on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gi5ffoE3mPc
