Use Bootstrap the right way. Automatically include the LESS soure, and selectively override default values.
Use Bootstrap the right way. IAvoid onion layered CSS by building fresh each time, customized for your styles.
This plugin requires Grunt
If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:
npm install grunt-include-bootstrap --save-dev
In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named
include_bootstrap to the data object passed into
gruntinitConfiginclude_bootstrap:options:// All options are passed on to the grunt-contrib-less taskyour_target:// Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
See the grunt-contrib-less project for the available options.
I'd recommend creating a
manifest.less file which
@imports all your other LESS files. You can import any Bootstrap LESS files from any of your files. For example:
// Import Bootstrap source'bootstrap'; // This will import the entire Bootstrap base'responsive'; // Bootstrap responsiveness is not included by default in the file above// Import your LESS files here'variables'; // Will import ./less/variables.less'signup';
Keep in mind that LESS variables are retroactive, so you an override a Bootstrap variable in your LESS files, and it will change throughout the Bootstrap core.
All task options are passed directly on to the grunt-contrib-less task.
In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style.
