Turn checkboxes and radio buttons in toggle switches.


Hi, Emanuele here. I am currently the sole contributor of Bootstrap Switch and have been mantaining it for quite a considerable amount of time. The development pace is strongly affected by the personal lack of time and a missing core team behind the project. It would be nice to have someone available for clearing the list of open issues and occasionally implementing new functionalities. If interest, you can drop me a line or pick a bug, kill it and open a Pull Request against develop branch. Many thanks.
