Bootstrap Fireworks

Today’s post is about …

A UI Toolkit for Twitter Bootstrap version 2.0. The entire UI recreated as vector images for Adobe Fireworks. (Fw PNG)

Hey, that’s not an extension!

Ok, so this is not about a Fireworks extension, but its the only Fireworks blog that I can post to. :o) Besides, if you think about it, anything that extends the use of Fireworks should be talked about here!

Bootstrap, from Twitter

Bootstrap is a neat little html, css and javascript toolkit that lets you create web apps quickly and easily.

That is, if you can code.

I was using Bootstrap the other week for a personal project that I am currently working on. First I designed the app in Fireworks. Next was finding a way to build it quickly. Bootstrap 2 had just been released, so I decided to give it a try. I was really surprised at how quickly I was able to build my app and customize it to look like my design.

What about non coder designers?

Not all designers are coders. So I thought it would be cool to recreate all the UI elements as vector images so that people who cannot code can still design Bootstrap lookin’ apps and sites.

So what is in it?

Other designers had created their own Bootstrap ui toolkits for Fireworks, but the fidelity was more for wireframing. I wanted to do something more hi-res. All the components are as close to looking like the screen grabs I got from the Bootstrap website as I could get them.

Because they are all vector images, you can select the points and extend them out or in as much as you need to.

All of the states are in there too. So you will find the hover and click state of buttons, tabs and other elements that have states. Also, if something can appear on the left, right, top or bottom, I created those too.

The Glyphicons provided are in a sprite for use in css. For the purposes of prototyping in Fireworks they needed to be broken up. In the icons section, you will see black and white versions of the icons. If you need another color, you only need to adjust the color settings.

All of the UI components are organized in pages within Fireworks. I did it this way because it just made sense to me to do it that way. If that is not working for some of you, let me know and I will reorganize them. They are also organized into the same hierarchy as they are on the Bootstrap site. Base CSS, Components and Javascript Plugins.

There are some things that I did not add. For instance, scrollspy. This is more of an interaction than it is a ui element. You can use the navbar to show this, so I did not include a separate page for scrollspy.

Enough already where can I get it!?!

I hope that this can help you in your designs! Let me know if there is anything I missed or if there is anything you would like to see added!

Comments welcome!

Little Differences

Some have asked what the difference is between this Bootstrap UI tool kit and this one by Hannah Milan. Let’s look at an example.

You can see from the image that there are differences between the Hannah’s 1.4 version and my 2.0 version. On Hannah’s site, http://fireworkswireframingkit.com/, she provides UI components that are primarily for wireframing. When I was creating these vectors, I was going for as hi-res close to the screen shot as I could. Hope that answers any questions! Hannah has done an awesome job on her site, if you are looking for wireframing resources, totally go to her site!

Some screenshots


  1. Is this Twitter Bootstrap version 1.4 or 2.0?

    Also: Have you tried this Fw version (1.4) and what are the main differences?… :)

    • Hey Michel, I added a section at the end of the post to address your question. First, this UI tool kit is of the 2.0 Bootstrap. Second, I was trying to be as accurate as I could with the look. I was literally creating them on top of the screenshots to make them as pixel perfect as I could.

      Hope that helps!

      • Thanks for the clarification! (I also think you should mention that this is Twitter Bootstrap version 2.0, as Adobe Fireworks library (Fw PNG), right at the beginning of the post.)

  2. Hey Grady,

    Thanks for the mention. This is awesome!
    Another resource for the Fireworks Community! :)

    Do you have any plans of adding them to your great work?

  22. This resource is very useful. Just saved me hours. I tried searching for this online and found nothing comparable to what you have here. Thanks to IxDA Utah and Grady Kelly I wouldn’t have found it.

  24. Amazing, thank you so much. I love seeing support for Fireworks. Keep the good work up!

  25. Awesome set of graphics. Now just wondering why you didn’t convert them into symbols.

    • Thanks Alex! – I was planning on making symbols of the elements at first, but then realized that I just wanted to get the resource out there. Symbols are on the list!

  30. Thanks alot. I also had hoped they would be symbols, and then I saw how many pages and elements there are and knew it would take a LONGGG time to make symbols out of everything. and boring.

    But thanks so much.

  31. Fantastic! Thank you SO MUCH!

  32. what an fantastic contribution to such an amazing tool as BS 2.0, but I’m getting a little confused as to what width to design when building a template is it 940px or 1170px as you have set out in your template?

    • Glad you like it Rodger! In creating this, I just copied the scaffolding found here: http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/scaffolding.html

      According to their documentation, you can do a 940px grid. I guess you could resize any of the vectors there to accommodate.

      • I’ve designed a template to 1170px as all the assets you have drawn up in Bootstrap Fireworks relate to this width, so would this be the wrong approach?

        • Can anyone please advise on what width to use when designing with Bootstrap Fireworks……Thanks!

          • Hey Roger,

            If you look at the docs from Twitter Bootstrap … http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/scaffolding.html

            “The default grid system provided in Bootstrap utilizes 12 columns that render out at widths of 724px, 940px (default without responsive CSS included), and 1170px. Below 767px viewports, the columns become fluid and stack vertically.”

            So you can do any of those widths. 724px, 940px and 1170px. When you get smaller, say iphone size, the widths fit the iphone screen resolution and stack vertically.

            Hope that helps!

  33. thanks – it’s great!

  40. great work just wondering how i can use these pngs to customise my own bootstrap ui. Not seeing any info relating to how you customise the ui except colours for buttons and bgs etc..I mean how can i use your pngs to create my own custom forms.

    • Jimmy,

      If you are using Adobe Fireworks, you can simply open the png and edit any of the vector images to your liking. The vectors are intended for creating designs and prototypes, you can design forms, but it will not create working forms.

      If you are looking for tools to customize the bootstrap css, there are may resources for that … http://stylebootstrap.info/

      Hope that answers your question
