Twitter Bootstrap for Rails 3.1 Asset Pipeline using Haml/Sass/Coffeescript
Twitter Bootstrap is a design toolkit to kickstart the graphical part of webapps.
Usage in your Ruby on Rails app
Include Bootstrap in Gemfile:
Select your preferred Sass style
Select the your preferred sass-style in config/application.rb:
config.sass.preferred_syntax = :sass
config.sass.preferred_syntax = :scss
where the last one is the default.
Add an initializer “config/initializers/haml.rb”:
Haml::Template.[:format] = :html5 Haml::Template.[:attr_wrapper] = '"'
Install the assets
Remove the following files:
Install application.js.coffee and application.css.sass (or .scss):
rails g bootstrap:install
To create a new haml layout:
rails g bootstrap:layout [LAYOUT_NAME] [*ﬁxed or ﬂuid]
'LAYOUT_NAME' is the name of the layout. 'fixed' and 'fluid' is the style of the layout.
rails g bootstrap:layout application fixed
Make sure, that you do not have erb-versions of your layouts like 'app/views/layouts/application.html.erb' since they will be preferred by rails.
Themed generates Twitter Bootstrap compatible scaffold views:
rails g bootstrap:themed [RESOURCE_NAME]
rails g scaffold post title:string description:text rake db:migrate rails g bootstrap:themed posts
If you want to modify the themed templates, you can install them into you local app directory:
rails g bootstrap:templates
You will find them in 'lib/generators/bootstrap/themed/templates'.
The main part of bringing Twitter Bootstrap to Sass is done by Christopher Cocchi-Perrier: sass-twitter-bootstrap-rails
hsc-twitter-bootstrap-rails depends on the sass-twitter-bootstrap-rails gem.
