Short Description and Usage

Paper kit is a beautiful resource built for Bootstrap. We have redesigned all its components with a pale color scheme and paper-like transitions. We are proud of this new Bootstrap skin and the possibilities for customisation.

Using it is very simple and it will enable you to refresh you classic looking application. To get the desired effect you will also need to integrate JS plugins that take a little bit more effort. It the end the result will be worth it.

Getting Started

The Paper Kit is built on top of Bootstrap 4, so you can safely use it on your existing or new Bootstrap project. No line of code from Bootstrap 4 was changed, so you don't have to worry about undesired effects in your work.

We provide all the necessary CSS resources. To get going, just include 'css/paper-kit.css' in your HTML template. Your project will get the new look.

The easiest way to start is to use our start-up template where all the files are already included and ready to use.

Buttons

Colors

We worked over the original Bootstrap classes, choosing a different color pallete. We opted for this beautiful scheme of pale colors:



<button type="button" class="btn btn-default">Default</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Primary</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-info">Info</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-success">Success</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-warning">Warning</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-danger">Danger</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-neutral">Neutral</button>

Sizes

Buttons come in all needed sizes:

<button type="button" class="btn btn-danger btn-sm">Small</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-danger">Regular</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-danger btn-lg">Large</button>

Styles

We added extra classes that can help you better customise the look. You can use regular buttons, filled buttons or plain link buttons. Let's see some examples:

<button type="button" class="btn btn-info">Default</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-info btn-round">Round</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-info btn-round"><i class="fa fa-heart"></i> With Icon</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-info btn-just-icon"><i class="fa fa-heart"></i></button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-info btn-link">Simple</button>

Button groups, toolbars, and disabled state all work like they are supposed to.

Checkboxes

To use the custom checkboxes, you need to include the Sass file called _checkbox-radio.scss.

Usage can be done via Data Attributes:

<div class="form-check">
    <label class="form-check-label">
        <input class="form-check-input" type="checkbox" value="">
        Unchecked
        <span class="form-check-sign"></span>
    </label>
</div>
<div class="form-check">
    <label class="form-check-label">
        <input class="form-check-input" type="checkbox" value="" checked>
        Checked
        <span class="form-check-sign"></span>
    </label>
</div>
<div class="form-check disabled">
    <label class="form-check-label">
        <input class="form-check-input" type="checkbox" value="" disabled>
        Disabled unchecked
        <span class="form-check-sign"></span>
    </label>
</div>
<div class="form-check disabled">
    <label class="form-check-label">
        <input class="form-check-input" type="checkbox" value="" disabled checked>
        Disabled checked
        <span class="form-check-sign"></span>
    </label>
</div>

Radio Buttons

To use the custom radio buttons, you need to include the Sass file called _checkbox-radio.scss.

<div class="form-check-radio">
    <label class="form-check-label">
        <input class="form-check-input" type="radio" name="exampleRadios" id="exampleRadios1" value="option1" >
        Radio is off
        <span class="form-check-sign"></span>
    </label>
</div>
<div class="form-check-radio">
    <label class="form-check-label">
        <input class="form-check-input" type="radio" name="exampleRadios" id="exampleRadios2" value="option2" checked>
        Radio is on
        <span class="form-check-sign"></span>
    </label>
</div>

<div class="form-check-radio disabled">
    <label class="form-check-label">
        <input class="form-check-input" type="radio" name="exampleRadios" id="exampleRadios3" value="option3" disabled>
        Disabled radio is off
        <span class="form-check-sign"></span>
    </label>
</div>

<div class="form-check-radio disabled">
    <label class="form-check-label">
        <input class="form-check-input" type="radio" name="exampleRadioz" id="exampleRadios4" value="option4" checked disabled>
        Disabled radio is on
        <span class="form-check-sign"></span>
    </label>
</div>

Inputs

We restyled the Bootstrap input to give it a different look. You can use the classic look, different colors and states or input groups.

<div class="row">
    <div class="col-md-6">
        <div class="form-group">
            <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Default">
        </div>
    </div>
    <div class="col-md-6">
        <div class="form-group has-success">
            <input type="text" class="form-control form-control-success" id="inputSuccess1" placeholder="Success">
        </div>
    </div>
</div>
<div class="row">
    <div class="col-md-6">
        <div class="form-group has-danger">
            <input type="text" class="form-control form-control-danger" id="inputDanger1" placeholder="Error">
            <div class="form-control-feedback">Sorry, that username's taken. Try another?</div>
        </div>
    </div>
    <div class="col-md-6">
        <div class="input-group">
            <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Username" aria-describedby="basic-addon1">
            <span class="input-group-addon" id="basic-addon1"><i class="fa fa-group" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

Textarea

We added custom style for the textarea, so it looks similar to all other inputs.

<textarea class="form-control" rows="4" placeholder="Tell us your thoughts"></textarea>
