Proton is a <stron>fully responsive mobile first Admin Template based on Twitter Bootstrap 3
. It features a highly flexible multi-column content structure
built using the best Html5 and CSS3 have to offer, while also staying compatible down to Internet Explorer 8.
Proton has a few easy ways to get started, each one appealing to a different skill level and use case. The fastest way is to use the the precompiled and minified version
Using LESS To Customize
All the original LESS
files used for development are included for you to modify. Also available along with the predefined themes you can see in the demo is the theme-creator.less
file. It contains a set of mixins to allow you to create your own custom color theme in just a minutes.
Built With Grunt
If you are working on a large project, requiring frequent changes to Html, JS and LESS files, Proton also comes packed with a set of Grunt development tools to make your life easier.
If you are not familiar with Grunt you will still be able to make all the customizations you may need using the non-minified version, or the development version of Proton. The Grunt version
simply gives more advanced developers a chance to greatly reduce their development time by utilizing simple automatic LESS compiler
triggered on any change to the LESS files. And of course the live reload which gives you the benefit of not having to reload the browser(s) every time you make a change.
Proton was developed using Yeoman generator-webapp 0.4.2
which comes with Grunt 0.4.1
. In addition to a wide range of tools that come out of the box with with generator-webapp, Proton also has the compile LESS files to CSS
and include files and replace variables
Grunt tasks in it’s Gruntfile.js configuration file.
