I love Bootstrap v4 and now that it is finally in Beta can start to use it in new projects.
But I miss the online customizer that was available for Bootstrap v3.
Perhaps one day the Bootstrap team will make a v4 customizer available on the Bootstrap
website but I thought it might be handy to create on myself.
Presenting Bootstrap Customizer
I wrote a simple website in PHP and used a Sass library called scssphp
Bootstrap Customizer is simply a web form with fields for all Bootstrap Sass variables, and upon submission it compiles these variables and the Bootstrap SCSS files into a single Bootstrap CSS file.
Bootstrap Customizer is currently Alpha, and I plan to add some more features as time allows:
- Option to exclude Bootstrap v4 components and features
- Save customizations to a database so that they can be modified and recompiled
- CSS minification

Bootstrap 4.x doesn't give you white buttons by default, but sometimes white buttons look better, particularly for something like a search box using an input group with button addon placed on a navbar.
