That said, the markup is complex enough that when developing sites I typically have the docs open in another tab at all times as a reference point, which lead me to start building little HtmlHelper extensions to create the more complicated elements, such as navbars, forms, etc. These extensions have been bounced around from project to project, and have ended up a little scrappy as they’ve been built as-and-when with no real planning, but they have been hugely useful, so I decided it was finally time to look at rewriting them. Check out the Bootstrap Extensions repo over on GitHub, or have a browse through the documentation (design somewhat inspired by the original bootstrap docs!).
The library is by no means complete, as of writing this I’ve only implemented lists, buttons, button groups + toolbars, navbars and progress bars; but it’s a start, and I intend to cover the majority of the more involved elements. I’ll also look at fine tuning the API to make development as pleasurable as possible.
