A quick note on version 2.0

Version 2.0 is almost complete but it's a very different project. Instead of a direct fork I have a build app that does the conversion and packaging. Plus, the plugins are all in NPM separately if you don't want them all.

See for v2.0 details


Look ma', no jQuery!

This is a simple port of with some changes to support use with Ender without jQuery.

It simply requires an Ender build with the Jeesh + Bowser (i.e. domReady, Qwery, Bonzo, Bean & Bowser, although Qwery is optional if you wish to use a different selector engine)

ender-twitter-bootstrap is available in NPM so to build with Ender simply run ender build ender-twitter-bootstrap.


The port is complete, minus any un-found bugs which I trust you will put in a pull-request to fix for the rest of us. Tested in IE7+ and the other usual suspects.

The approach taken is to touch the original Bootstrap files as little as possible and just wrap them in a copy of Ender with a bunch of shims applied that fix up anything that Bootstrap is expecting from jQuery that Ender doesn't have or do (not a whole lot). So keeping the port up to date with the latest Bootstrap code is relatively easy.

At least one use-case that isn't supported is:

$("a[rel=twipsy]").twipsy({ live: true })

This won't work because we don't have live() in bean, it's been deprecated in jQuery anyway. Just call twipsy() and it'll work.

See docs/javascript.html for an updated example using the Ender version and for details on what changes were made to get it working see the diff:

A live example can be found at with zero jQueryness.


You can install this directly into an ender build with:

ender build ender-twitter-bootstrap

and you'll get the dependencies packed too.

Alternatively you'll find a script in the js/ender directory that you can use to build bootstrap-ender.js yourself.
