Twitter Bootstrap on the frontend

Permalink 2 users found helpful
I'm new to concrete5, by new I mean installed it on dream-host with the one-click installer yesterday just to play around. I was pretty shocked at the ease of use. I wanted to do a layout using twitter bootstrap on the front-end, but everything I find talks about how twitter bootstrap is built in, but modified. All the examples also look as if twitter bootstrap is used mostly for block popups and for the dashboard/login area.

Can I just download twitter bootstrap and include it in my theme and write the HTML for the layout? Will this interfere with any existing functionality built-in to concrete5? I apologies if this is asked before, I search but can not find much about front-end development with bootstrap.

I found that page as well. I thought it talks about front end dialog boxes and dashboard ui but not themes. I'm on my mobile right now, I'll check it out again later.

Thanks!

Search for themes that use bootstrap

Actually, that was my first search. So apparently I'm not understanding the result set very well. I'll learn more about c5 themes, then post back if I can't figure it out.

I planned on doing my layout on twitter-bootstrap first then learning c5 Developing. I just thought I would make certain if I do the layout on bootstrap there will be no interference with the version of bootstrap built-in.

I read one post that talks about not upgrading, but I don't understand if upgrading means upgrading the system's twitter-bootstrap, or does adding twitter-boot strap to your themes folder upgrade it? Is the system's bootstrap only available when signed in since from what I read its only for block dialogs and dashboard UI?

Again, Its my lack of knowledge of C5 obviously. I'll switch up my process and learn c5 first to understand the basics of templates/themes and what css/js is available for public viewing site.
