Twitter Bootstrap Theme, for Pinax

A theme for Pinax based on Twitter's open source Bootstrap framework.

Quick Start

Include "pinax-theme-bootstrap" in your requirements file and include "pinax_theme_bootstrap" and "django_bootstrap_form" (which is installed alongside this theme) in your INSTALLED APPS.

Make sure both template loaders and staticfiles finders includes app directories.

Site name comes from Sites fixture.

Your "site_base.html" should extend "theme_bootstrap/base.html" and should provide "footer" and "nav" blocks (the latter should just be a ul of li of a links).

Your pages should have blocks "head_title" and "body" and should extend "site_base.html".

The url name "home" should be defined as the homepage.

Upgrade Notes

  • To upgrade an existing site running on the prior version of this theme, it is recommended that you read through the official migration guide.
  • Forms Rendering: Versions prior to 4.0 used django-forms-bootstrap. We have switched this app to django-bootstrap-form so you'll need to make the necessary updates to your templates and INSTALLED_APPS.


This theme is officially supported when used in conjunction with Pinax starter projects. If using the theme with Django < 1.4, you will need to install a recent version of django-staticfiles as we use the {% render %} template tag.


To modify your site's navigation bar, implement the "nav" block in your site_base.html using the following pattern:

<ul class="nav navbar-nav">
    <li id="tab_first">
        <a href="#">First Link</a>
    <li id="tab_second">
        <a href="#">Second Link</a>
    <li id="tab_third" class="dropdown">
        <a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown">
            Some Dropdown Menu
            <b class="caret"></b>
        <ul class="dropdown-menu">
            <li><a href="#">Some Link</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Another Link</a></li>


This theme supports both django-pagination and Django builtin pagination. See PaginationTemplate for information how to switch between them.


The 2.x line of pinax-theme-bootstrap with support for Pinax 0.9 will soon be phased out of major updates. We will be releasing a 3.x line that will break backwards compatibility but fully support Pinax 1.0 projects. This is a change towards a more semantic versioning strategy in lieu of merely indicating which version of Bootstrap media is included. The 4.x line now supports Bootstrap 3.0, while the 3.x line supports Bootstrap 2.x.
