The Bootstrap
[resolved] Where did bootstrap.min.css come from? (4 posts)

    Hi There,

    Congrats on moving over to the forum.

    One of the things I wanted to do with my version of the theme was to limit the max container width to some thing smaller than 940px, more like 880px. So i went off and got the most recent bootstrap. Before I started messing with column widths I just tried to regenerate the existing bootstrap.min.css.

    I downloaded the most recent bootstrap and I installed nodejs, npm, less , jshint recess and uglify-js. When 'make' generated the two css files, bootstrap.css and bootstrap.responsive.css, I uploaded the latter to my server hosting 'the-bootstrap' theme, renamed to bootstrap.min.css (which I think it is). I was expecting everything to look the same, but the result is a page that looks like it has no css applied.

    I investigated the css files and it does look like a css sheet, it just won't link to the theme.

    What is your flow for generating the bootstrap.css, is it different from how I described?

    Thanks! :)

    Right, I don't use the big grey button on the project's homepage.

    I use the bigger blue button on the customize page. With all checkboxes enabled, though.

    Oh cool, I didn't know they had exposed it that way as well, that makes life so much easier. There's me off trying to do it from the command line.

    Another useful link for certain settings. Useful for experimenting with colors to plug into the Twitter customize page.
