brajeshwar/bootstrap-sass-scss-compass - GitHub Built With Bootstrap Some of you may know that I ran Built With Bootstrap many years ago, which wasn't much but became a really nice way for folks to share the sites they were building using the Bootstrap CSS framework. (Please note, I was never affiliated with the Bootstrap CSS team - I did use the framework a lot tho at the time) I'd always wanted to focus less on a specific frontend framework and more on bootstrapping startups, but never quite managed to get the time. One of the reasons that Bootstrap CSS became (and arguably still is) so popular is that it enables entrepreneurs and their teams to move faster towards getting something out in front of their potential audience. That's why I'm super excited to evolve Built With Bootstrap into Bootstrap Forever, a community to help bootstrapped startups build and grow together! Bootstrapping a business is hard, especially if you're running solo! Seeking funding or a quick exit isn't everyone's goal. This will sit alongside a new website (coming soon!)

Beautiful Buttons for Twitter Bootstrappers This is an extension to the Twitter Bootstrap framework. It makes creating pretty buttons easy. (Send improvements to @charliepark.) First, monkey with the sliders on the left. Use your arrow keys for extra precision. Second, copy the CSS in the box below. You should be able to just pop it into your CSS file.

Customizing Twitter Bootstrap's Nav Bar Color in 2.0 - The Nyaruka Blog Twitter Bootstrap is the bee's knees. At Nyaruka we've used it for virtually every single project since it arrived on the scene. And we aren't the only ones. Sites across the web have picked it up as a great tool to get functional, good looking designs up quickly. But there's one downside to the popularity of Bootstrap, it is all too easy to have your site look like every other Bootstrap site. To my eyes, the biggest giveaway that someone is using Bootstrap is the black nav bar. We almost always customize the top bar color for our sites, and though they are still obviously Bootstrap to a trained eye, they add a bit of personality. Of course there's a reason not that many people change it. Thankfully, the upcoming 2.0 version (due out January 31st) introduces a couple variables to make things easier, though you'll still have to do a bit of hackery to deal with drop down menus. In 2.0, Twitter has defined two new variables in the patterns.css file, @navBarBgStart and @navBarBgEnd.
