Twitter Bootstrap Orchard Theme
Pictures are worth a thousand words, so here are some images of the new Twitter Bootstrap Orchard Theme. First, full support for the fixed topbar navigation as well as all the various typography and widgets that come with Bootstrap. You have all the lovely buttons, form elements, alerts, grid, pagination, breadcrumbs, and everything else that comes with Bootstrap. Although I tried to minimize the shape overriding, I have provided shape alternates where appropriate so everything works perfect out of the box. So much nicer than the Theme Machine.
Bootstrap comes with a simple, but effect grid system based on 960.gs and I have used it to theme a typical blog, portfolio, FAQ, etc. in Orchard. I am still tweaking those a bit so I will display those photos some other time. Just know that Bootstrap from Twitter is a pretty nice theme to get you up and running with a website or web application. I think it will make a nice default theme for my Orchard Websites should my clients wish to go that route.
I am also taking parts of the HTML5 Boilerplate to provide some common sense defaults without weighing down the lightweight, simplicity of Bootstrap. More on all of this later.
Bootstrap from Twitter is an awesome toolkit for developing websites and web applications and will make a wonderful Orchard Theme.
