Bootstrap Material Admin Theme

Bootstrap Material Theme (Bootstrap v3)


Based on the popular Bootstrap v3 html framework, this fully tested theme will add a stylish Backoffice design to your system.

The Bootstrap theme implements Googles Material Design guidelines for an overall modern approach to user interface design. As always,
the theme is meant to be customized and comes as a simple plug-in component. It includes all the sources, templating toolkit overrides
& class mappings to get you started. Frontend-development is done using LESS, Bower and Grunt.
Additional frontend libraries, such as Chart.js, datatables JS, jquery and momentjs are included in this package.

Please be aware that the theme may receive frequent updates.

Frontend Development


To setup system to compile sass files, the following packages/commands are needed (ubuntu/debian/mint):

sudo apt-get install ruby ruby-dev ruby-full nodejs nodejs-dev npm

On windows download and use the ruby installer and nodejs installers.


Go to @component-name/webapp/@component-name/ and run

npm install
npm install -g grunt-cli

Less (CSS) Compilation

To start watching for less changes to auto compile to css, go to:


and run:

grunt watch

If you run into the error ‘Error: Invalid CSS after ” })”: expected “{“, was “;”‘, run

grunt dist-less && grunt dist-js to bypass the sass-compilation process.

Bower Update

To update the dependencies, run the bower update command from @component-name/webapp/@component-name/:

bower update
