Version 2.0
June 20, 2018

Bootstrap 4 version has its own changelog, because 2 Bootstrap version are completely different. Major part of components have been customized in order to support BS4 and flexbox layout, so components from BS3 can be used in this version. Since all components are the same in all layouts, the template now supports 1 main layout and 4 child layouts - this means only 1st layout includes all components, child layouts include only layout-related files. This makes maintenance easy and fast. Main highlights:

  • Adapted 3rd party components
  • Latest versions of all main libraries
  • Built with SCSS
  • Improved gulp tasks
  • Based on flexbox model
  • Single set of assets for all layouts
  • Moved to modular JS pattern
  • All bugfixes and improvements from BS3 are included
  • Updated all examples
  • High attention to details
  • Improved file structure
  • Improved starter kit
  • Improved vertical navigation
  • Improved multi level navigation in navbar
  • Mega menu has been extended
  • Improved performance
  • Removed old and unmaintained libraries
  • Single SCSS configuration file with all components
  • Improved theming support
  • Simple style editing
  • ... and much more
Important note: since every single line of code is completely different from Bootstrap 3 version, there's no any migration guide: markup, class names, source files, pre-processors and logic are different. But both versions have their own extensive documentation. Bootstrap 3 is officially in maintenance mode since 2017 and from now on I am mainly focused on extending and improving BS4 version.
