I’m currently working on a website for my local Scout group and I decided to use the excellent Bootstrap framework.

My issue was that bootstrap didn’t conform to the Scout branding guidelines. So I decided to extend the classes myself to bring the style of the site into the guidelines.

Once I got started I realised that others might find it useful; so I developed it into a separate style-sheet, wrote it in LESS to compile with Bootstrap nicely extend the classes.

So here it is!

Scoutstrap: A bootstrap extension to develop on-brand websites for the Scout Association.

It’s my first proper use of GitHub, GitHub Pages and LESS so any issues, then add it as an issue and I’ll get around to fixing/sorting them. This is aimed at Bootstrap Version 2.3.2 and not the recent Bootstrap 3.0 which I aim to develop for in the near future.
