I use bootstrap in all my projects, but I only use the grid and the helper classes (visible-xs, pull-left, text-center, etc.). The rest of the components I code them myself.

To my opinion the bootstrap grid system is just horrible. The whole mobile first approach is just terribly bad. For example when you have a 3 column grid and you watch it in portraid mode on an iPad, it already stops floating all columns and you see everything underneath each other.

That’s my biggest ( and only ) problem with bootstrap. i do like the basic table styling etc though.

I use a custom starter sheet with my own grid and basic styling for text and form elements.

So, basically guys, the common ground of this would be, getting the bootstrap column/grid system, and building the rest of the items upon that, am I getting this right ?

What about the JavaScript elements? I’m not overly fond of using the ones that boostrap provides. I’d much rather use my own code…

How do you guys go around this? Your own JS elements, or the BootStrap ones?

+ 1, at the only condition you customize all the elements because there is too much website with the same alertbox, buttons, navbar….right ?

Regarding the js elements, I personally just use some of them such as tab, tooltip, modal and dropdown. The slider (carousel) is definitely useless against flexslider which is so much useful :p.

Cheers,

From the JS components of bootstrap I use only the accordion and tabs. As for the others, there are so much better plugins.

In Bootstrap 3 you can use this class:

.col-sm-

^ stacks horizontally on iPad in all modes (land/port) and vertically on iPhone in all modes (land/port)

See all options here: http://getbootstrap.com/css/#grid-options

To answer the OP, we used to write our own grids etc., but I am now looking into the possibility of using Bootstrap in our plugin/theme development, will see how that goes :)

I am not sure I understand what you meant by that, maybe this?: http://www.bootply.com/132799 (fixed vs fluid width container; fixed is jumpy when you resize the window)

I see! looks nice.

But they didn’t use to have that and then i already had my own grid for that ( which is basically the same ).

So to reset my opinion: Yes – bootstrap is good for people who want a new framework and want to start right away! :)

Thanks for showing this though! :)
