Preboot is a collection of LESS mixins and variables for quickly writing CSS. As the precursor to Bootstrap, it serves as a lightweight and interface agnostic approach to jumpstarting your next web project. Use it how you see fit.
Preboot requires LESS. Head over to their documentation and familiarize yourself with the project. Once you're up and running, including and using Preboot is a breeze.
We highly recommend using Preboot in conjunction with Normalize, a powerful tool for more consistent rendering of web components across various browsers and devices.
Preboot was originally released in March 2011 under the name Bootstrap.less. Sensing the need for a larger and more comprehensive framework, I copped the name and created Bootstrap based on the original variables and mixins work here. To avoid obivous naming issues, I renamed this Preboot and essentially didn't touch the project for two years.
Fast forward two years and I'm backporting many of Bootstrap's variables and mixins back into Preboot as v2.
Disclaimer: Preboot v1 (Bootstrap.less) was released under a Creative Commons license and is still available. Preboot 2 is now under MIT.
Quick release to capture the commits added after the v2 release.
Complete re-engineering of the project. Highlights include:
@brand-success, scaffolding settings like
@link-color, and typographic shortcuts for font stacks, sizes, headings, and more.
.text-truncate(), and more.
Tagging the latest code as v1 for archiving purposes ahead of the Preboot 2 launch.
