#Bootstrap Lite: a Backdrop Bootstrap-based theme
It's a clean and minimal Backdrop-oriented Bootstrap-based theme inspired by the Drupal Bootstrap theme. It is a totally separate project from the Drupal Bootstrap theme with no guarantied compatibility between the two themes.

Demo site.


  1. BootstrapCDN based.
  2. Bootswatch support (via BootstrapCDN) included. Easy to pick a Bootswatch free theme.
  3. Font awesome support included.
  4. Other tweaks:
  • Navbar settings (fixed, static, top, bottom).
  • Navbar user menu with cog icon.
  • Breadcrumbs tweaks.
  • Ability to use fluid or fixed width.
  • "XX time ago" for nodes and comments instead of regular time.

Excluded from original Drupal Bootstrap code

  • Starter kit. But you still can create a sub theme. See Developing themes
  • Tooltip. The feature is there, but you need to follow the documentation to make it work.
  • Popovers. The feature is there, but you need to follow the documentation to make it work.
  • Anchors settings. I believe this one needs to be done via a module.
  • Well settings.



  • The navbar content is controlled by a layout block - "Header block". By changing settings for the "Header block", you can control the visibility of the menu, logo, sitename and site slogan.

- Tooltops, Popovers implementation in a better way to integrate with Backdrop.
- Add the ability to have different container settings for different layouts. For example: fluid for Default Layout and fixed for Default Administrative Layout.
