Twitter Bootstrap Theme for Drupal 6

I decided to give Twitter Bootstrap a try for my new mobile theme and design website.  Unfortunately, I was unable to find a Bootstrap 2 theme for Drupal 6, so I ported it over myself.  Since I use so much open source software, I decided a few months back that I want to start contributing more to open source. So I thought this theme might be handy for others.  Feel free to download it below and use it for your own projects.

Oh it is important to note that this is a Zen subtheme.  Please download and install Zen Theme for Drupal along with this theme and upload both to your website before activating the Bootstrap theme.

The Backstory

For my latest creation I choose Drupal as my weapon (read CMS) of choice because a) of the flexibility to do 80% of what I wanted it to do long term, b) because I knew it well and c) it’s awesome.  However, I ran into a couple of problems when finding a suitable theme:

Problem 1

Bootstrap 2 Theme available for Drupal 7 not for Drupal 6 and the plug-ins I needed were all in Drupal 6.  Plus the Drupal 7 theme is still in development.

Problem 2

Bootstrap 1.4 Theme available for Drupal 6, but I needed lots of customization to get it working well.

So, that is why I ported over my own theme.

Without further adeu:
