Bootstrap theme support for Django.

Project description


Bootstrap theme support for Django, includes themes from Bootswatch.

* Bootstrap (
* Bootswatch (


django-bootstrap-themes can be installed via pip:

pip install django-bootstrap-themes

or by copying the `bootstrap_themes` directory into your Django project.


To configure django-bootstrap-themes in your project, first add it to
the installed apps in your Django settings:

# Django apps
# Other apps

Once you've added it to your installed apps, you can use the template
tags to get the CSS and JS files for Bootstrap:

* Loading the templatetags

{% load bootstrap_themes %}

* Getting the CSS files (use the `theme` parameter to select the theme
and the `type` parameter to choose between CSS, minified CSS, or LESS
format for the stylesheets)

{% bootstrap_styles theme='default' type='min.css' %}
{% bootstrap_styles theme='cosmo' type='css' %}
{% bootstrap_styles theme='united' type='less' %}

* Getting the Javascript files (select minified or not with the
`use_min` parameter)

{% bootstrap_script use_min=True %}

As with any Django templatetags, you can use variables for the
parameters, thus making it easy to switch themes, and even make the
theme user-configurable.

If you want to make the theme user configurable, there is a handy
function to return the list of included themes as a `choices` list for
a `CharField`, like this:

from django.db import models
from bootstrap_themes import list_themes

class MyModel(models.Model):
theme = models.CharField(max_length=255, default='default', choices=list_themes())

Then in your templates, you can use the value of the `theme` field as the
theme parameter to `bootstrap_styles`.
