Building a minified release
The repository no longer contains a minified bootbox.min.js file - this is now only generated
for releases. To build your own minified copy
for use in development simply run
npm install if you haven't already, followed by
This will generate a bootbox.min.js file in your working directory.
A note on Bootstrap dependencies
Bootbox 4.0.0 is the first release to support Bootstrap 3.0.0.
Bootbox 3.3.0 is the last release to support Bootstrap 2.2.x.
Much more dependency information can be found on the Bootbox website.
The latest major release of Bootbox - 4.0.0 - involved a total rewrite of the internal code and introduced an entirely new public API. It has not re-implemented some functionality from the 3.x series as of yet; this will be addressed in the the form of new minor releases. Please feel free to add feedback and requests.
There is no new major (e.g. 5.x) release on the roadmap at present.
Latest Release: 4.4.0
