Bootstrap helper for Flask/Jinja2.

Project description


Bootstrap 4 helper for Flask/Jinja2. Based on Flask-Bootstrap, but lighter and better.


$ pip install bootstrap-flask


from flask_bootstrap import Bootstrap
from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

bootstrap = Bootstrap(app)

Resources helpers

When development, Bootstrap-Flask provides two helper functions that can be used to generate resources load code in template: bootstrap.load_css() and bootstrap.load_js()

Call it at your template, for example:

{{ bootstrap.load_css() }}
{{ bootstrap.load_js() }}


Macro Templates Path Description
render_field() bootstrap/form.html Redner a WTForms form field
render_form() bootstrap/form.html Render a WTForms form
render_pager() bootstrap/pagination.html Render a basic pagination, only include previous and next button.
render_pagination() bootstrap/pagination.html Render a standard pagination
render_nav_item() bootstrap/nav.html Render a navigation item
render_breadcrumb_item() bootstrap/nav.html Render a breadcrumb item
render_static() bootstrap/utils.html Render a resource reference code (i.e. <link>, <script>)

How to use these macors? It's quite simple, just import them from the correspond path and then call them like any other macro:

{% from 'bootstrap/form.html' import render_form %}

{{ render_form(form) }}

API documentation will coming soon...
