Bootstrap for Vanilla has been rewritten from scratch on top of Bootstrap 3 in this second installation of the most popular theme for Vanilla Forums. Kickstart your Vanilla-powered community forums with a fresh and solid theme that is ready to be customized to your heart's desires.
To get started using Bootstrap for Vanilla, either:
- Download the latest release
- Clone the repository directly into your Vanilla
$ git clone kasperisager/vanilla-bootstrap bootstrap
Bootstrap for Vanilla was scaffolded using Ninja. For instructions on how to install the development dependencies and front-end components, please refer to the Ninja documentation. Once you've got everything set up, use the following tasks to re-compile the theme assets:
Starts an instance of tiny-lr (a tiny LiveReload server) that watches the compiled assets for changes and pushes these to your Vanilla installation automatically whenever they change.
Bootstrap for Vanilla supports tools such as Bootstrap Magic out-of-the-box. All custom variables go in
less/variables.less and will override all those set by both Bootstrap itself as well as any extensions made by Bootstrap for Vanilla. For more in-depth customizations,
less/custom.less has been made available.
If you come across any bugs or if you have a feature request, please file an issue using the GitHub Issue tracker. Bootstrap for Vanilla won't be supported through http://vanillaforums.org so please stick to using GitHub for inquiries about bugs and feature requests. Thanks!
