Pixelkit Bootstrap templates

If you're a web developer using Bootstrap, sometimes the base styles are a tad boring. (Bootstrap, btw, is a CSS framework that makes web development really easy. I used it for http://www.nwprepsnow.com, and odds are that it will be coming to www.spokesman.com too.)

The base styles aren't flashy at all, and if you need just a little more panache and pizzazz, it usually takes a bit of work.

That's where Pixelkit comes in. They've released a set of free Bootstrap UI Kits under Creative Commons and MIT licenses for you to use in your next dev project. (An MIT license means you can literally do whatever you want with it, including modify or re-sell or whatever.)

I'm not a huge fan of all of that skeuomorphism personally, but sometimes it's just the thing your project needs.
