To start using Clearmin template in a new project you can use this minimal template :

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1">
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="assets/css/bootstrap-clearmin.min.css">

General structure

CSS and JS files

CSS files (<head>) :

  • assets/css/roboto.css (main font)
  • assets/css/bootstrap-clearmin.css (bootstrap theme)
  • assets/css/material-design.css (material design svg icons classes)
  • assets/css/small-n-flat.css (small-n-flat svg icons classes)
  • assets/css/font-awesome.min.css (iconic font classes)

Javascript files (just before </body>) :

  • assets/js/lib/jquery.min.js (required by bootstrap)
  • assets/js/lib/jquery.mousewheel.min.js (catch some scrolling events)
  • assets/js/lib/jquery.cookie.min.js (cookie manipulation plugin)
  • assets/js/lib/fastclick.min.js (enhance mobile device click events)
  • assets/js/bootstrap.min.js (bootstrap js widgets)
  • assets/js/clearmin.js (required by clearmin)

Body classes

  • cm-no-transition : must be present to prevent certain browser to start transition on page load
  • cm-1-navbar : when one navbar is present on your page
  • cm-2-navbar : when two navbars are present on your page
  • cm-3-navbar : when three navbars are present on your page
  • cm-menu-toggled : if you want the menu to be toggled on page load (see next section)

Preserving left menu state between pages

When the user choose to use the condensed version of the side menu, we want it to stay in this state when the user click on another page. To achieve this, a cookie is automatically set to reflect the menu state.

You got two different way to restore this state :

  • Server-side (recommended) : when your server receive a cookie named "cm-menu-toggled" with value "true", just add .cm-menu-toggled class to the body tag.
  • Client-side : Nothing to do, .cm-menu-toggled is automaticaly added to the body when needed but it can cause a blinking reflow on certain browsers (e.g. Google Chrome)
