Kickstrap is a full version of Twitter’s Bootstrap (interested in more Twitter Bootstrap resources? Check out the Twitter Bootstrap Channel on Functionn) with themes, enhancements, and other goodies. It boasts the following features:
- Ready to go: Developers will love the advanced features, but novices need not worry about customization. Kickstrap is drag-and-drop ready to go. I’ve even included two sample html files with everything linked and the best features turned on.
- Cross-everything: Bootstrap did such an awesome job with css @media support, I’ve turned it on by default and responsively-designed the default Kickstrap theme.
- Sparkling HTML: The included starter HTML files are ready to go with code for Google Analytics, CDN-hosted jQuery with local fallback, IE version detection, responsive screen detection, HTML5 Polyfilling (via Modernizr), and several other delightfully nerdy things.
- Styleguide docs: Kickstrap builds on top of Bootstrap, that means Bootstrap’s core layout code is still valid in Kickstrap and documented here.
- Themes Included: Easily activate and install themes. Using a LESS compiler, Kickstrap will override Bootstrap’s default style where needed so your users won’t need to download an extra stylesheet.
- Icon Fonts > Images: The glyphicon library has been replaced with the identical, extended, and awesome Font Awesome and IcoMoon, specially made for Bootstrap. Here’s why icon fonts are awesome.
- Workflow Tools: With the HTML5 Boilerplate Buildscript, easily compress, minify, and optimize your site files automatically.
