Bootstrap integrated with EPiServer 7 CMS


Hi there, 

I am wondering if EPiServer can be integrated with Bootstrap framework to create templates? 

If so, anyone has any suggestions? Is the Alloy sample site using Bootstrap framework to design?

Yes - Alloy sample is using Bootstrap 

Web Form Templates

I started with the Alloy MVC 

MVC Templates

Using the MVC I then looked at structure and built a site to a custom bootstrap grid of 24 based on design.

The main things to look for are in global.cs


  • ContentAreaWidths
  • ContentAreaTagWidths (Dictionary)
  • ContentAreaTags


You will also have to extend Resources\LanguageFiles\EditorHints.xml for preview sizes.


You can extend and change all of these as well as creating a custom bootstrap for your design


Hope that helps to get you started.

So Alloy is using MVC as well, isn't it?

If you are using Bootstrap v3 - this package may become handy.
