Wpak Bootstrap Demo Theme v0.3.1

Bootstrap Demo Theme is a WP-AppKit theme based on the Bootstrap Front End Framework.

Its main purpose is to illustrate the different WP-AppKit features and how to implement them in a theme using the WP-AppKit Theme JS API.

Specific WP-AppKit features implementation examples such as the "User Login" feature can be found in the feature-* branches of this repository. For example see the feature-user-login branch.


WP-AppKit plugin install

  • Download WP-AppKit: (As of v0.3, Bootstrap theme requires WP-AppKit >= 0.5)
  • Install WP-AppKit as you would do for any other WordPress plugins (ie. drop the plugin folder in /wp-content/plugins)
  • Activate WP-AppKit using the Plugins WordPress admin panel. (Browse the Installed Plugins list and click the Activate link of WP-AppKit.)
  • Now you should have a brand new /wp-content/themes-wp-appkit folder (yes, this is where app themes are stored)

Bootstrap theme install

  • Create a new folder "boostrap" in the /wp-content/themes-wp-appkit directory
  • Download the Bootstrap theme from this repository and drop the source files to your "bootstrap" folder
  • OR clone this repository in your "bootstrap" folder : "git clone ." (don't forget the final dot so that it's not cloned in a subfolder!)
  • In WordPress, use the WP-AppKit admin panel to create a new app and choose the Bootstrap theme in the Appearance box
  • From there you're free to test in your browser (using the Chrome's Emulation Mode) or directly try to compile

WP-AppKit themes rely on Cordova plugins to:
