For quite a while I have been using the basic jquery objects to build up a somewhat spartan RoseNMS. With the newer versions of TurboGears using bootstrap for the underlying CSS framework I thought there were plenty of bootstrap related themes, surely I can find one that suits. The theme had to have enough examples to fit a Network Management System, rather than just a blog statistics page like most seem to do. It also had to have a license I could use as it forms part of RoseNMS.
After some searching, I have chosen the Gentelella bootstrap theme by colorlib. This is a nice clean theme that has plenty of example features which I can build into RoseNMS items. It wasn’t just a matter of loading the theme and off you go; the various components needed to be converted into ToscaWidgets 2 widgets to be useful.
