Easily generate a Twitter Bootstrap navbar in your Rails app


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'rails_bootstrap_navbar'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install rails_bootstrap_navbar


The necessary files from Bootstrap >= 2.0 have to be included separately, they are not part of this gem.

At least the CSS files for the navbar are required, and the JS files for dropdowns and responsive features, if you want to use those in the navbar.


The gem bootstrap-navbar is used to generate the HTML. Please refer to the gem's README and the following Wiki entries for detailed instructions on how to generate the navbar:

Usage with Bootstrap 2.x

Usage with Bootstrap 3.x
