This will be sent later, when Bootstrap integration is more advanced
At the Montreal-Ottawa TikiFest last spring, we made the decision to implement Bootstrap compatibility in an upcoming version of Tiki. The reasons: to refactor and modernize Tiki's visual layout as responsive web design, to ease the way for designers and web integrators to create and modify visual themes for Tiki, and to enable more theme options for Tiki site administrators.
Tiki is a comprehensive web application that takes a different approach than most. Rather than providing a core that outside parties produce third-party modules for, Tiki provides a long list of features in the project code itself. A strength of this approach for visual developers is that all the features and modules that need to be styled are already in the package and available for testing, and all are upgraded together for any new release.
Again taking a different approach, we collaborate on the Tiki project in a very inclusive way. We call it "software made the wiki way". Rather than submitting code to a core team that curates code changes, developers are encouraged to join the community and commit their code themselves.
- For the releases of 3.0 and 3.1 (including license change)
- to Chris Rebert and Julian Thilo for becoming admins and all their hard work
- And or course, to Jacob Thornton & Mark Otto for their fantastic realization.
- On Phenomenal growth and mindshare, now powering 1% of the Web
Tiki Suite: we encourage other apps to move to Bootstrap as well, such as with ClearOS.
About the license change, congratulations and thank you for reaching out to 500 people! It's quite an undertaking to get the consent of hundreds of people. Special thanks to Cameron Eagans, Julian Thilo and Rhodry Korb for making this happen.

Bootstrap is being integrated in Tiki as a core resource, available to all themes and features, in combination with Smarty 3 template inheritance and Perspectives for extensive control over content display.
Developers, designers and others who work with the Bootstrap framework were invited to come by TikiFest Bootstrap in Montreal and Ottawa, Canada. See the page for more details.
