Full Description


Bootstrap is a sleek, intuitive, and powerful front-end framework for faster and easier web development.
This is a docker image provides full compile kit for Bootstrap.


This docker image is available as an automated build on the docker registry hub, so using it is as simple as running:

$ docker run shouldbee/bootstrap-compile-kit

At first, you need to copy node_modules to host from the container, due to Grunt needs local NPM modules.

$ wget
$ unzip
$ cd bootstrap-3.2.0/
$ docker run --rm -v `pwd`:/host shouldbee/bootstrap-compile-kit cp -r /node_modules /host/node_modules

To further ease running, it's recommended to set up a much shorter function so that you can easily execute it as just grunt:

$ grunt () {
  docker run -it --rm --net host -v `pwd`:/host -w /host shouldbee/bootstrap-compile-kit grunt $@

This will create a temporary function. In order to make it persist reboots, you can append this exact line to your ~/.bashrc (or similar) like this:

$ declare -f grunt >> ~/.bashrc


Usage from Getting started · Bootstrap

grunt dist (Just compile CSS and JavaScript)

Regenerates the /dist/ directory with compiled and minified CSS and JavaScript files. As a Bootstrap user, this is normally the command you want.

grunt watch (Watch)

Watches the Less source files and automatically recompiles them to CSS whenever you save a change.

grunt test (Run tests)

Runs JSHint and runs the QUnit tests headlessly in PhantomJS.

grunt (Build absolutely everything and run tests)

Compiles and minifies CSS and JavaScript, builds the documentation website, runs the HTML5 validator against the docs, regenerates the Customizer assets, and more. Usually only necessary if you're hacking on Bootstrap itself.
