Installing Bootstrap

The best way to install Bootstrap and working with VS would be installing it with NUGet

1. Create a new Project, (ASP.net WebForm Project)

2. Open Package Manager Console and type

PM> Install-Package Twitter.Bootstrap –Pre


3. All bootstrap files should now be added in in project:


4. Now delete other files like site.css etc that was supposed to be used in default asp.net themes.

5. Open Site.Master page and add Bootstrap min Css so that it use bootStrap css.


6. Save an View Page in Browser: (For Default.aspx)


We would also require to add following JS files :

<!– JavaScript plugins (requires jQuery) –>
   <script src=”http://code.jquery.com/jquery.js”></script>
   <!– Include all compiled plugins (below), or include individual files as needed –>
   <script src=”js/bootstrap.min.js”></script>

   <!– Optionally enable responsive features in IE8 –>
   <script src=”js/respond.js”></script>

Now we can continue to edit our template. You can continue to Getting Started .

The current release of the bootstrap is : http://blog.getbootstrap.com/2013/07/27/bootstrap-3-rc1/
