Bootstrap v2.3.1 Build Status

Bootstrap is a sleek, intuitive, and powerful front-end framework for faster and easier web development, created and maintained by Mark Otto and Jacob Thornton.

To get started, checkout http://getbootstrap.com!

Quick start

Three quick start options are available:

Versioning

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 following format:

<major>.<minor>.<patch>

And constructed with the following guidelines:

  • Breaking backward compatibility bumps the major (and resets the minor and patch)
  • New additions without breaking backward compatibility bumps the minor (and resets the patch)
  • Bug fixes and misc changes bumps the patch

For more information on SemVer, please visit http://semver.org/.

Bug tracker

Have a bug or a feature request? Please open a new issue. Before opening any issue, please search for existing issues and read the Issue Guidelines, written by Nicolas Gallagher.

Keep track of development and community news.

Compiling CSS and JavaScript

Bootstrap includes a makefile with convenient methods for working with the framework. Before getting started, be sure to install the necessary local dependencies:

$ npm install

When completed, you'll be able to run the various make commands provided:

build - make

Runs the recess compiler to rebuild the /less files and compiles the docs. Requires recess and uglify-js.

test - make test

Runs jshint and qunit tests headlessly in phantomjs (used for ci). Depends on having phantomjs installed.

watch - make watch

This is a convenience method for watching just Less files and automatically building them whenever you save. Requires the Watchr gem.

Should you encounter problems with installing dependencies or running the makefile commands, be sure to first uninstall any previous versions (global and local) you may have installed, and then rerun npm install.

Contributing

Please submit all pull requests against *-wip branches. If your pull request contains JavaScript patches or features, you must include relevant unit tests. All HTML and CSS should conform to the Code Guide, maintained by Mark Otto.

Thanks!
