Bootstrap 4 beta Customiser

I love Bootstrap v4 and now that it is finally in Beta can start to use it in new projects. But I miss the online customizer that was available for Bootstrap v3.

I love Bootstrap v4 and now that it is finally in Beta can start to use it in new projects.

But I miss the online customizer that was available for Bootstrap v3.

Perhaps one day the Bootstrap team will make a v4 customizer available on the Bootstrap website but I thought it might be handy to create on myself.

Presenting Bootstrap Customizer.

I wrote a simple website in PHP and used a Sass library called scssphp.

Bootstrap Customizer is simply a web form with fields for all Bootstrap Sass variables, and upon submission it compiles these variables and the Bootstrap SCSS files into a single Bootstrap CSS file.

Bootstrap Customizer is currently Alpha, and I plan to add some more features as time allows:

  • Option to exclude Bootstrap v4 components and features
  • Save customizations to a database so that they can be modified and recompiled
  • CSS minification
