This gem helps to bootstrap a project using assets. is a derivative work based on Twitter Bootstrap version 3 that comes with a bunch of precompiled stylesheets. In my projects I use bootstrap-sass as the gem providing the Bootstrap javascripts, while I access the precompiled stylesheets (including fonts) via Bootswatch.

Bootswatch_rails uses simple_form and currently this is hard coded. The installer configures simple_form to prefer horizontal forms.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'bootswatch_rails'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install bootswatch_rails


Basically just run 'rails generate bootswatch_rails:install`

TODO: include more information!


Since I have no experience with test driven development (yet), this is still an empty spot. Any help is highly appreciated.
