A few months ago a published an article on a Bootstrap Theme Switcher. I’ve since approved this post and the JavaScript and turned it into a jQuery plugin. This plugin works with the Bootswatch {:target=”_blank”} API to provide the user with the following:

  • Loads a list of available themes from the API into a SELECT or a UL,
  • Dynamically change the site theme to the selected theme
  • Manually change the theme
  • Save the selected theme to a cookie, requires the jQuery Cookie plugin,
  • Loads the selected theme from a cookie, requires the jQuery Cookie plugin,

The plugin also allows you to load a list of local themes in case you to not want to use the Bootswatch site.

Let me know what you think.
