Today I had the chance to meet @AnthonyBorton at the .Net Developers Association. He shared some of the cool features from VS2013 and TFS Online (or maybe i should call it “Visual Studio Online”?). I enjoyed some of the new linking inside Team Rooms and quick charting features. I hope people don’t over do it with the charts though 🙂 I do see a winner with some of the new Load Performance features powered by Azure.

How to fix your 3.0 Bootswatch theme for MVC’s Bootstrap 2.3 Responsive templates on Visual Studio 2013

If you are like me, you already downloaded Visual Studio 2013 and probably migrated some solutions to the latest MVC version. It  comes with some great responsive design features out of the box starting with the stock template. On the other end, if are using Bootswatch themes you will see that the latest 3.0 Bootswatch themes for Bootstrap break the responsive design. The top navigation reverts to the small screen size and the Hero-Unit also looks funky. Well don’t despair, thanks to Ghislain Proulx and his article, I was able to update my 2.3 references to 3.0, switch my Hero-Unit for a Jumbotron among  other CSS fixes.

Nuget Packages:

Update-Package Bootstrap
Update-Package jQuery.Validation
Install-Package Respond
Install-Package html5shiv

Update your BundleConfig files, grab your Bootswatch theme, and replace your “~/Content/bootstrap-theme.css” file and voila’.

If you need inspiration try the Amelia theme it is my favorite:

Any additional CSS edits will be application specific; for example, I had to change hero-unit for jumbotron and my spans for col-md-4.

Hope this helps 🙂
