Contributing to bootstrap-sass

Asset Changes

Any changes to bootstrap-sass assets (scss, javascripts, fonts) should be checked against the convert rake task. For usage instructions, see the README.

If something is broken in the converter, it's preferable to update the converter along with the asset itself.


A bug is a demonstrable problem that is caused by the code in the repository. Good bug reports are extremely helpful - thank you!

Guidelines for bug reports:

  1. Does it belong here? — is this a problem with bootstrap-sass, or it an issue with twbs/bootstrap? We only distribute a direct port and will not modify files if they're not changed upstream.

  2. Use the GitHub issue search — check if the issue has already been reported.

  3. Isolate the problem — ideally create a reduced test case and a live example.

A good bug report shouldn't leave others needing to chase you up for more information. Please try to be as detailed as possible in your report. What is your environment? What steps will reproduce the issue? What browser(s) and OS experience the problem? What would you expect to be the outcome? All these details will help people to fix any potential bugs.


Short and descriptive example bug report title

A summary of the issue and the browser/OS environment in which it occurs. If suitable, include the steps required to reproduce the bug.

  1. This is the first step
  2. This is the second step
  3. Further steps, etc.

<url> (a link to the reduced test case)

Any other information you want to share that is relevant to the issue being reported. This might include the lines of code that you have identified as causing the bug, and potential solutions (and your opinions on their merits).

Pull requests

We will not accept pull requests that modify the SCSS beyond fixing bugs caused by our code!

We use a converter script to automatically convert upstream bootstrap, written in LESS, to Sass.

Issues related to styles or javascript but unrelated to the conversion process should go to twbs/bootstrap.

Pull requests that fix bugs caused by our code should not modify the SCSS directly, but should patch the converter instead.

Good pull requests - patches, improvements, new features - are a fantastic help. They should remain focused in scope and avoid containing unrelated commits. If your contribution involves a significant amount of work or substantial changes to any part of the project, please open an issue to discuss it first.

Make sure to adhere to the coding conventions used throughout a project (indentation, accurate comments, etc.). Please update any documentation that is relevant to the change you're making.

Do not…

Please do not use the issue tracker for personal support requests (use Stack Overflow).

Please do not derail or troll issues. Keep the discussion on topic and respect the opinions of others.
