Patch the old Form classes in web.py to create Bootstrap-compatible forms

Project Description
# Effortless Bootstrap Web/Form Monkey Patch

Bootstrap your old web/form.py forms!

## Synopsis

Just because web.py hasn't been updated since 2012 doesn't mean you have to
settle for outdated HTML layouts. Scrap that 2001-era table-based form layout,
and use this module to create shiny, new Bootstrap 4-alpha forms!

Two ways to be happy:

1. Patch the old form classes.
2. Use our backwards-compatible form classes.

Either way, *you won't have to change a bit of your program logic.* It's a
just small change at the top of the program.

## How To Patch

To update your old webforms, just import and use the `patch()` function.

from effortless_bootstrap_web_form_monkey_patch import patch
patch()

Now you can continue to use your old web.py forms normally.

## How to Use Backwards-Compatible Classes

To use all-new but all-backwards-compatible classes, just import this package
instead of web.form.

import effortless_bootstrap_web_form_monkey_patch as form

Now you can continue to use your old web.py forms normally.

## Remember to Update Your Templates

Oh yeah, make sure you update the templates to use Bootstrap. The most
important piece to remember is to wrap all Bootstrap items with a `.container`
div.

<div class="container">
<form>
$:form.render()
</form>
</div>

And of course you need the CSS. If you don't want to host it locally, use their
CDN by adding this piece to the header.
