Don't use NodeJS pre-packaged installer because it will install it with sudo and you don't want that, also don't install it via brew or other package manager because for some reason unknown to me all of them install it somehow wrongly. It's better to built NodeJS from sources.

tar -xzf node-vX.X.X.tar.gz
cd node-vX.X.X
make install

NodeJS should be installed, then type npm install less -g

Download Twitter Bootstrap, go to css folder, create bootstrap.less file and copy content of bootstrap.css there (LESS is superset of CSS so it will be fine).

Create file bootstrap-widget.less and put import bootstrap styles into namespace.

.bootstrap {@import "./bootstrap.less";}

Now run LESS and convert it to CSS

lessc bootstrap-widget.less > bootstrap-widget.css

You should get file bootstrap-widget.css with all bootstrap styles put under the bootstrap namespace.
