  • More about Bootstrap, less about Grails integration

    by Jake Pearce,

    Your message is awaiting moderation. Thank you for participating in the discussion.

    The title and description are fairly misleading - this is more of a presentation on the features of Bootstrap, rather than a presentation on integrating Bootstrap with Grails. Grails is only mentioned when a gentleman in the audience asks him how to integrate forms with Grails, otherwise this is just a Bootstrap presentation.

  • Great presentation and thank you

    by Neal Lawson,

    I agree with Jake that more Grails integration would have been helpful - I just started with Bootstrap in Grails, and I'd love to know your steps on where the bootstrap files were copied and how, exactly, you modified the template - are the files from this presentation available? If not, would you mind?

    Overall, however, Thank you! I could really relate on the JS-CSS-HTML experiences you described. I still work as a back-end programmer for those very reasons, but this has me excited to explore Bootstrap.
