    Jasny Bootstrap

    Jasny Bootstrap is an extension of the famous Bootstrap, adding the following components:

    To get started, check out!

    Quick start

    Four quick start options are available:

    Read the Getting Started page for information on the framework contents, templates and examples, and more.

    What's included

    Within the download you'll find the following directories and files, logically grouping common assets and providing both compiled and minified variations. You'll see something like this:

    ├── css/
    │   ├── jasny-bootstrap.css
    │   ├── jasny-bootstrap.min.css
    └── js/
        ├── jasny-bootstrap.js
        └── jasny-bootstrap.min.js

    We provide compiled CSS and JS (jasny-bootstrap.*), as well as compiled and minified CSS and JS (jasny-bootstrap.min.*).

    Jasny Bootstrap should be loaded after vanilla Bootstrap.

    Jasny Bootstrap's documentation, included in this repo in the root directory, is built with Jekyll and publicly hosted on GitHub Pages at The docs may also be run locally.

    Running documentation locally

    1. If necessary, install Jekyll (requires v1.x).
    2. From the root /bootstrap directory, run jekyll serve in the command line.
      • Windows users: run chcp 65001 first to change the command prompt's character encoding (code page) to UTF-8 so Jekyll runs without errors.
    3. Open http://localhost:9001 in your browser, and voilà.

    Learn more about using Jekyll by reading its documentation.

    Documentation for previous releases

    Documentation for v2.3.1 has been made available for the time being at while folks transition to Bootstrap 3.

    Previous releases and their documentation are also available for download.

    Compiling CSS and JavaScript

    Bootstrap uses Grunt with convenient methods for working with the framework. It's how we compile our code, run tests, and more. To use it, install the required dependencies as directed and then run some Grunt commands.

    Install Grunt

    From the command line:

    1. Install grunt-cli globally with npm install -g grunt-cli.
    2. Navigate to the root /bootstrap directory, then run npm install. npm will look at package.json and automatically install the necessary local dependencies listed there.

    When completed, you'll be able to run the various Grunt commands provided from the command line.

    Unfamiliar with npm? Don't have node installed? That's a-okay. npm stands for node packaged modules and is a way to manage development dependencies through node.js. Download and install node.js before proceeding.

    Available Grunt commands

    Build - grunt

    Run grunt to run tests locally and compile the CSS and JavaScript into /dist. Uses recess and UglifyJS.

    Only compile CSS and JavaScript - grunt dist

    grunt dist creates the /dist directory with compiled files. Uses recess and UglifyJS.

    Tests - grunt test

    Runs JSHint and QUnit tests headlessly in PhantomJS (used for CI).

    Watch - grunt watch

    This is a convenience method for watching just Less files and automatically building them whenever you save.

    Troubleshooting dependencies

    Should you encounter problems with installing dependencies or running Grunt commands, uninstall all previous dependency versions (global and local). Then, rerun npm install.


    Please read through our contributing guidelines. Included are directions for opening issues, coding standards, and notes on development.

    More over, if your pull request contains JavaScript patches or features, you must include relevant unit tests. All HTML and CSS should conform to the Code Guide, maintained by Mark Otto.

    Editor preferences are available in the editor config for easy use in common text editors. Read more and download plugins at

    For transparency into our release cycle and in striving to maintain backward compatibility, Jasny Bootstrap is maintained under the Semantic Versioning guidelines. Sometimes we screw up, but we'll adhere to these rules whenever possible.

    Releases will be numbered with the following format:


    And constructed with the following guidelines:

    • Breaking backward compatibility bumps the major while resetting minor and patch
    • New additions without breaking backward compatibility bumps the minor while resetting the patch
    • Bug fixes and misc changes bumps only the patch

    For more information on SemVer, please visit

    The major version will follow Bootstrap's major version. This means backward compatibility will only be broken if Bootstrap does so.
