An overview of bootzee.com, how to select a template, edit files, add images and link your site to a domain.
To start using bootzee.com for developing templates or sites, simply sign in to create an account. At the moment only Google sign in is supported. Since most web developers will have accounts for Analytics, Webmaster Tools or Google+ we don't believe this to be an issue. However, you can always just sign up for a new Gmail account or, alternatively, create a Google account out of your current non Google email address here.
If you have questions, feedback or suggestions, head over to our Google+ Community, you can add a post there or contact us directly via our Google+ page. Alternatively send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Images are uploaded to to Google's Cloud Storage, from there we are issued an image serving URL This URL needs to be inserted into your image links, you can get to this URL either from the My Images section or from the image drop down in the the side bar of the editing page. You have the option of copying just the URL or it can insert an img tag at the current location for you, with the option of adding an alt text attribute. There is an image resizing function - you can add arguments to this URL to get the desired size and crop parameters. The available arguments are:
To use Less for developing your CSS files, simply switch on Less mode when you create a new CSS file. For an existing CSS file we do need you to empty the file first, so as not to overwrite anything you've already developed, simply copy and paste it somewhere else if you want to keep the existing CSS.
For css and js files, there is an option to minify the output, so the browser client receives a reduced payload. Minify should be switched on once the development is done, once switched on, it will minify on-the-fly on next request and then the system will cache that version, until the next edit.
