Bootcards: A cards-based UI framework with dual-pane capability for mobile and desktop, built on top of Bootstrap
Bootcards is a cards-based UI framework. It is built on top of Bootstrap and uses it's responsive features. Bootcards has a native look on Android, iOS and desktop. Unlike most other UI frameworks, it includes a dual-pane interface for tablet users.
We think Cards are the design pattern for mobile of the future. The near future that is. Cards are appearing already on sites and apps like Twitter, Google Now, Facebook, Spotify, Pinterest, and Amazon. To kickstart your (and our) projects we decided to create Bootcards.
The current version of Bootcards is stable, but always work in progress. We built a demo app showcasing what the framework (and your apps) can look like using NodeJS. You'll find it here (note that adding, saving and deleting items is not implemented). Please let us know what you think!
To build the Bootcards source files using Grunt you'll need:
- Node & NPM
- Grunt: npm install -g grunt-cli
- Ruby: check if it's install by running ruby -v in your terminal. (should be Ok if you're on Linux or Mac OS X, otherwise see http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/)
- Sass: install using Ruby by running: gem install sass
Bootcards uses Grunt to build the source files. You'lou will need Sass too to compile CSS files from the Sass source files.
