So i've been playing around with the Twitter Bootstrap framework, building new responsive pages for home, about network and otherwise. I just wanted to open a discussion regarding the possibilities of using Bootstrap in hope of discovering (or creating) new ways to further integrate them within the Ning system. Before we go any further, I'll admit that I haven't quite got it perfect yet, thus my reasoning behind posting this discussion. I am interested to hear back from any other NCs who might have experimented with Bootstrap as I cannot find any discussions on the creators forum regarding bootstrap.
Extending Ning With Bootstrap
The possibilities for extending Ning with bootstrap seem endless, using the file manager a bit of hard work and imagination. Here are a couple of new clean pages that I made for my network using Twitter Bootstrap.

Twitter bootstrap also built using LESS for CSS, so I am optimistic about being able to (eventually) fully integrate bootstrap into my entire network, thus allowing me to have features to pull in member profile data, extend the capabilities of my network.
You can customize your bootstrap download to match the color scheme of your network here.
If you are interested in practicing with the same intentions, I will give you a tip. Download the bootstrap folder and place it into your Public Dropbox folderto make changes as you see fit and when you have it the way you like it, then upload it to your network to save a lot of headaches.
If you are interested in discussing my experiments with twitter bootstrap or are in need of some help with your own network, connect with me from my profile on creators and don't be shy.
