README

kohana-twbs adds support for twitter bootstrap and font-awesome to a Kohana project, importing the dependencies from source with composer to ensure they can be easily updated over time.

Installing the basic library and static assets

Include in your composer.json:

{
	"require": {
		"ingenerator/kohana-twbs" : "dev-master"
	}
}

Run composer to install the module and the external dependencies into your project with composer install.

You should see this module in your modules directory, and the twitter bootstrap and font-awesome packages under your vendor directory. The static font and javascript files can't be hosted from there though, so next you need to enable the module in your bootstrap as usual and then run `minion twbs:publishasssets" to copy the required files from the vendor packages to your document root. You should update your .gitignore file to avoid checking these copied files into source control.

Installing and compiling the less files

For maximum flexibility in customising your site's styles, kohana-twbs defaults to compiling all CSS from the original LESS sources. A minion task is provided to help with this, which also requires you to install recess - the less compiler officially supported by the bootstrap project.

By default, minion twbs:compile-less will compile and minify the site.bootstrap.less shipped in the module's assets/less directory, sending the output to DOCROOT/assets/css/site.bootstrap.css. The shipped file simply combines bootstrap with the font-awesome icon set.

Once you're ready to start customising styles, drop a site.bootstrap.less in APPATH/assets/less - this will be compiled instead of the module's version. All the assets/less files will be included in the recess include path, but the way that recess works is slightly different to the Kohana CFS.

With the options passed by the minion task, recess searches for @import files as follows:

  • the directory containing the file with the @import statement
  • each of the assets/less folders in the CFS, in sequence
  • the font-awesome less folder
  • the bootstrap less folder

Therefore, you cannot just drop in for example a carousel.less file and have it replace bootstrap's own. You have two options:

  • define styles that overwrite/extend the bootstrap defaults, and include them after you include bootstrap.
  • import the individual bootstrap components from your top-level less file, specifying their paths appropriately, rather than just importing the overall bootstrap file.

You can also pass options to the compile-less task to configure other compiler properties including source and destination paths.
