WordPress Admin + Plugin Development + Less + Bootstrap = Awesome

10. April 2014

Bootstrap can not be added directly to the admin of a plugin, but you can wrap your plugin in a container and compile the Bootstrap CSS to use it as a wrapper.

I do my compiling using SimpLess

In the past you could do this using SimpLess directly (my-own-bootstrap.less).

This fails with the latest version of Bootstrap. But you can just paste the Bootstrap CSS into the LESS file and compile it that way.

Run it through SimpLess and after that the new CSS can be enqueued in WordPress ! This also works nicely with themes from Bootswatch.

Enjoy!

I am a full-stack developer. My expertise include:

  • Server, Network and Hosting Environments
  • Data Modeling / Import / Export
  • Business Logic
  • API Layer / Action layer / MVC
  • User Interfaces
  • User Experience
  • Understand what the customer and the business needs

 

I love programming,  design and know my way around server architecture as well.  I would never feel complete, with one of these missing.

I have a broad range of interests, that’s why I constantly dive into new technologies and expand my knowledge where ever required. Technologies are evolving fast and I enjoy using the latest.

Apart from that, I am a peace loving guy who tries to have people around him that think the same.  I truly believe in the principle: “If you help someone, someone will help you, when you need it."
