Thinking of using Bootstrap for the admin in the next version. Anyone think this is a good idea? anyone think bootstrap is just a passing fad?

its css, html 5 framwork.

its being used a lot by template designers. its useful because it has all the common html, css elements for building a web site.

say you want to add tabs to a page to split up some content and you have include the bootstrap css and js. you would just add the sample html.

i have already started altering the admin. i have changed the tab system and menu.

Ah, interesting - thanks for the explanation. I haven't played with html5 at all yet. Honestly, since I sell shoes, my first thought was a strap on a boot but knew that was wrong :)

IIRC its built by twitter and its fully responsive, meaning it resizes and adjusts itself to fit your screen size. So you should be able to run your admin on a tablet or smartphone easily.

I think its an awesome idea!!

That would be nice.

How about to use Bootstrap also in front-end?

Shipping methods: Matkahuolto, Posti, PostNord
Payment methods: Advance payment / Bank transfer, Checkout, Paytrail, Maksukaista
Modules: Prinetti, Matkahuolto's adress label, Random Products
vQmod: Checkout prices with tax, Product price input with tax
See my all modules

Hello:

Boostrap is responsive and that is fantastic!

I'm working on my OC store with boostrap theme on frontend and at backend and i'm very, very very happy.

Hi Daniel

This is a great idea, one question though is the next OC version likely to be 1.6.0.

Just that adding bootstrap and the new internal vqmod style modification system is likely to break large numbers of extensions. And changing for 1.5.5.1 to 1.6.0 is more likely to indicate to users that existing extensions will not work than a change from 1.5.5.1 to 1.5.6.0 would.

Thanks

This is some really cool stuff looking through the bootstrap documentation. I managed to throw together a nice HTML5 page together yesterday in practically no time.

ExtJS could be a very good choice too for the backoffice. For example, Pimcore is a CMS (I use) with ExtJS for the backoffice: http://www.pimcore.org. Here you can see examples made with ExtJS: http://www.sencha.com/products/extjs/examples/.
ExtJS for the back (admin) and the couple JQuery/Bootstrap for the front (catalog) seems to be very good choice too.

I can say that there is one problem that I've seen. It lies in the conflict in the name of the function button(), which is declared in jQueryUI and bootstrap.js.

you may also want to consider http://foundation.zurb.com/ as the main framework.

For fonts etc maybe could look at something like http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/

Bootstrap is great, however misses some features (out of the box) used by the backend, e.g.:
  • Rich Text Editor
  • DateTimeField
  • DataGrid
  • ...

Checkout our extensions, or our open source projects
