Perusion presents free Bootstrap Templates & Demos and free downloads for Interchange.

Demos

We've been working to create some alternatives for the old and tired "standard" Interchange template. Below find links to, and descriptions for two modern Interchange templates based on the widely-used Bootstrap framework.

Both of our newly released templates are free and available to anyone. They do require Interchange of course, but if you are currently using Interchange, or are thinking about building a new website using Interchange, these are the most modern and up to date templates for Interchange available that we know of.

  • Modern responsive template based on original Bootstrap 2.3.2

Usage

It is a simple matter to add one or both of these free Bootstrap-based templates to your current version of Interchange. You simply download or clone either or both of these templates into your existing Interchange VendRoot directory. Once they are in this directory, you can build a new catalog using the template just by running "makecat" and specify one of these alternative templates. All needed files are included.

Specific instructions are included in the strap README, or the strap30 README. Both README's are included in the download.
