This is the Sass version of Bootstrap. A port of Bootstrap from Less to Sass. This project is focused on being a 1:1 port of the original. Please do not submit issues or pull requests for issues with Bootstrap itself. Those should be pushed upstream in the Less version.
To get started, check out http://getbootstrap.com!
Three quick start options are available:
- Download the latest release.
- Clone the repo:
git clone git://github.com/jlong/sass-bootstrap.git.
- Install with Bower:
bower install --save sass-bootstrap.
You can use the Sass Bootstrap by dropping the compiled CSS into any new project and start cranking.
Because SASS always outputs standard css, just link to the final output like normal:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="./dist/css/bootstrap.css">
For more info, refer to the docs!
You can learn more about Sass at:
Sass runs as a local GEM on your system. You can run
sass --watch lib/bootstrap.scss:dist/css/bootstrap.css
Bugs and feature requests
Please do not submit issues or pull requests for issues with Bootstrap itself. Those should be pushed upstream in the Less version. Please open a new issue. Before opening any issue, please search for existing issues and read the Issue Guidelines, written by Nicolas Gallagher.

Previous releases and their documentation are also available for download.
Bootstrap uses Grunt with convenient methods for working with the framework. It's how we compile our code, run tests, and more. To use it, install the required dependencies as directed and then run some Grunt commands.
From the command line:
npm install -g grunt-cli.
- Install the necessary local dependencies via
When completed, you'll be able to run the various Grunt commands provided from the command line.
npm? Don't have node installed? That's a-okay. npm stands for node packaged modules and is a way to manage development dependencies through node.js. Download and install node.js before proceeding.
Available Grunt commands
This is a convenience method for watching just Less files and automatically building them whenever you save.
Should you encounter problems with installing dependencies or running Grunt commands, uninstall all previous dependency versions (global and local). Then, rerun

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:
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

We have included a Rakefile with convenience methods for working with the SASS Bootstrap library.
rake buildThis will run the less compiler on the bootstrap lib and regenerate the docs dir. The lessc compiler is required for this command to run.
rake watchThis is a convenience method for watching your Sass files and automatically building them whenever you save.
SASS: Conversion less to Sass
The Twitter Bootstrap was lovingly converted to Sass by:
John W. Long
SASS: Conversion Quick Tips
- replace @ with $
- replace . with @include for mixins
- add !default to variable definitions
- replace #gradient > .vertical with @include gradient-vertical
- replace #grid > .style with @include grid-style
- use grid-core and grid-fluid mixins instead of #grid > .core and #grid > .fluid
- use font-shorthand instead of #font > .shorthand
- replace fadein with fade-in
- move @import for reset below mixins, because it uses tab-focus mixin in bootstrap.scss
- explicitly provide .clearfix, .hide-text and .input-block-level for compatibility with LESS output
- pass grid-* mixin arguments to generators, because otherwise the generator mixins will use the default variables pull transition definition into variable
Sass: Installation via Composer
If you already use Composer, the php dependency manager, installing sass-twitter-bootstrap is as simple as typing :
composer.phar require jlong/sass-bootstrap:x.y.z
This will install version x.y.z from packagist.org
You'll probably want to make sure you get minor updates, like this:
composer.phar require jlong/sass-bootstrap:~x.y.z
or like this:
composer.phar require jlong/sass-bootstrap:x.y.*
