Bootstrap is Twitter's toolkit for kickstarting CSS for websites, apps, and more. It includes base CSS styles for typography, forms, buttons, tables, grids, navigation, alerts, and more.
To get started -- checkout http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap!
You can use the SASS Twitter Bootstrap by dropping the compiled CSS into any new project and start cranking.
Because SASS always outputs standard css, just link to the final output like normal:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="bootstrap-2.0.3.css">
For more info, refer to the docs!
You can learn more about SASS at:
SASS runs as a local GEM on your system. You can run "sass --watch lib/bootstrap.scss:bootstrap-2.0.3.css"
For transparency and insight into our release cycle, and for striving to maintain backward compatibility, Bootstrap will be maintained under the Semantic Versioning guidelines as much as possible.
Releases will be numbered with the follow format:
And constructed with the following guidelines:
- Breaking backward compatibility bumps the major
- New additions without breaking backward compatibility bumps the minor
- Bug fixes and misc changes bump the patch
For more information on SemVer, please visit http://semver.org/.

We have included a Rakefile with convenience methods for working with the SASS Bootstrap library.
rake buildThis will run the less compiler on the bootstrap lib and regenerate the docs dir. The lessc compiler is required for this command to run.
rake watchThis is a convenience method for watching your Sass files and automatically building them whenever you save.
We have included a makefile with convenience methods for working with the Bootstrap library.
- dependencies Our makefile depends on you having recess, uglify.js, and jshint installed. To install, just run the following command in npm:
$ npm install recess uglify-js jshint -g
makeRuns the recess compiler to rebuild the
/lessfiles and compiles the docs pages. Requires recess and uglify-js. Read more in our docs »
make testRuns jshint and qunit tests headlessly in phantom js (used for ci). Depends on having phatomjs installed.
make watchThis is a convenience method for watching just Less files and automatically building them whenever you save. Requires the Watchr gem.
