Bootswatch

Bootswatch is a collection of free themes for Twitter Bootstrap. Check it out at bootswatch.com.

Usage

Head over to Bootswatch and download the bootstrap.min.css file associated with a theme. Replace Bootstrap's stylesheet with this file.

The themes are also hosted on BootstrapCDN.

For use with Rails, check out bootswatch-rails (Sass) and twitter-bootswatch-rails (LESS). For use with a Yeoman app or with Bower check out bootswatch-scss.

Customization

Bootswatch is an open source project, and you’re welcome to modify the themes further. If you’re interested, fork or follow the GitHub repository. The files of interest are in the gh-pages branch.

Each raw theme consists of two LESS files. One is variables.less, which is included by default in Bootstrap and allows you to customize these settings. The other is called bootswatch.less and introduces more extensive structural changes.

Check out the README in the swatchmaker directory for step-by-step instructions on building your own swatch.

API

A simple API is available for integrating your platform with Bootswatch.

The swatch objects are housed in an array called themes, and each swatch has the following properties: name, description, preview, thumbnail, css, css-min, less, and less-variables.

CORS and JSONP are supported. Send your request to http://api.bootswatch.com.
