Planned Integration of Bootstrap 4

Post by dharward » Thu Jan 11, 2018 2:58 pm

I know that Boostrap is something generally accounted for in your theme, but I was wondering if there was any plan for implimenting its integration in either Joomla 3.9 or 4.0?

I know that most of the Joomlart templates use the current version of Bootstrap 3.3.7. I know that Bootstrap 4.0 is on the verge of being released and I know that 4.0 makes the move from using LESS styling to SASS Styling. This is a pretty major shift and I think has the potential for breaking all of our existing websites if that upgrade were to happen.

What is the current plan for upgrading when Bootstrap 4.0 is released? Will there be settings in the theme backend to remain on 3.7 or will we have to make the change for all of our current LESS stylesheets to SASS?

We are just trying to make a plan as we have a ton of websites using your themes and we know this change is coming and I believe most of the themes we are using load in the latest Bootstrap version automatically and there is not necessarily a specific version tied to a template version unless I am understanding its implementation incorrectly.

Thank you for any information to my questions.
