Django Form wrapper for Twitter-Bootstrap


  1. Install using pip:

     pip install -e git+git://



from bootstrap.forms import BootstrapForm, Fieldset

class LoginForm(BootstrapForm):
    class Meta:
        layout = (
            Fieldset("Please Login", "username", "password", ),

    username = forms.CharField(max_length=100)
    password = forms.CharField(widget=forms.PasswordInput(), max_length=100)

If you want to use the Bootstrap Form wrapper on a built-in form, such as those in django.contrib.auth.forms then you can use the mixin class.

from django.contrib.auth.forms import PasswordChangeForm
from bootstrap.forms import BootstrapMixin, Fieldset

class BootstrapPasswordChangeForm(BootstrapMixin, PasswordChangeForm):
    class Meta:
    layout = (
        Fieldset("Change your password",
	        "old_password", "new_password1", "new_password2"),

When using the mixin directly it must be the first class your form inherits from.

Template Usage

<form action="/login/" method="post" class="form-horizontal">
    {{ form }}
    <div class="form-actions">
        <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">Login</button>
