    I know it would be a large addition, but with the ability to import new themes and that being, or seeming to be, the best way to change the coloring and general appearance of web site/app, it would be AMAZING if a visual theme builder was built into the application.

    Something like what you see on these sites…

    The standard customizer (http://getbootstrap.com/customize/) lacks a nice visual interface and the others are prone to JS page errors that break your build midway through or possibly disappearing altogether. Really, anything that would allow you to create and edit custom themes merely through changing the less variable values would be helpful to me.

    Sorry if this is a duplicate request. I didn’t see one, so I figured I would put it out there.

    Either way – great application! Thank you. And impressive release schedule. Keep up the great work!

    Hello and welcome to our forums!

    We are planning to add customizability to the Bootstrap theme in the next releases once we have SASS support in place. But we are planning it more in line with the customizer on the Bootstap website, it won’t be visual as the ones you linked.

    But you could use these builders right now and import the resulting CSS as a custom theme in Bootstrap Studio. Does this work for you?

    Sort of. My problem is that the list of tools I provided are all error prone. I had one encounter a JavaScript error while I was working on the theme and it prevented me from exporting the theme. It was a decent slice of time effectively thrown away.

    This of course is not your (Bootstrap Studio) problem; your application works very well. For me, I was just hoping to get a tool that made building a custom theme a little nicer and faster… and reliable. I have been playing with the idea of making one myself, but we will see.

    That said, I look forward to seeing what you do in the next releases. Thank you for the reply and consideration.

    i am definitely in favor of a visual customizer like the one seen on http://bootstrap-live-customizer.com/
    or
    http://bootswatchr.com/create#!

    This would make an already solid tool a great one!
