Bootstrap can be mind-blowing when you consider how easily it incorporates so many complex things on a website. But can it get improved upon? Are there tools to make it even more astounding?

Yes! Here’s 10 resources to help you customize your Bootstrap project.

2. Kickstrap

 

A complete kit for making websites. The first of its kind, Kickstrap is a no-install front-end framework with apps, themes, and extras.

You decide which CSS and JS components from Bootstrap to use as you develop but never edit Bootstrap's code directly. This means you can keep the Bootstrap layer up-to-date without overwriting your existing code.

Kickstrap is a composition of HTML, JavaScript, and LESS, a kind of shorthand CSS syntax.

Due to its simple construction and needing no install, Kickstrap has been deployed successfully on all kinds of operating systems, platforms, and languages.
