If you are looking for Bootstrap without jQuery or vanilla Javascript for Bootstrap, this is the place to get started.

Native Javascript for Bootstrap

This is a set of scripts developed with native Javascript for Bootstrap 3 series, and featuring superior performance compared to the original jQuery Plugins. Thanks to Ingwie Phoenix for contributing with npm/RequireJS/CommonJS compatibility. See demo for scripting examples and instructions.


New releases will be available automatically on jsdelivr CDN repositories and CDNjs repositories.

Bower and NPM

You can install this package by using either Bower or NPM.

$ npm install –save bootstrap.native


$ bower install –save bootstrap.native

Subsystem compatibility

bootstrap.native is compatible with the CommonJS/RequireJS spec (exporting itself to module.exports). It thus can fall back to adding its exports to the window object.


You can use the scripts either using a traditional script-tag like so:

<!-- Using one of the CDN repositories-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>
<!-- Using a local assets folder -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="/assets/js/bootstrap.native.min.js"></script>
<!-- Or using Bower? -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="/bower_components/bootstrap.native/dist/bootstrap-native.min.js"></script>

Note that you may not be able to use files directly from /lib folder because they are missing the utilities. These files are sources for the builds located in the /dist folder.

It’s also possible to use any module loader that supports the RequireJS or CommonJS syntax. An example is RequireJS itself:

<script type="text/javascript">
    var bsn = require("bootstrap.native");
    // Create a button:
    var btn = new bsn.Button(...);

If you are working in a virtual browser environment, the properties of the returned exports are all functions, that expect both, a global window and a global document variable to exist before calling. An example case is during tests, where you may use NodeJS to run front-end tests. These usually will create a virtual Window and Document object. Once these exist, bootstrap.native will function properly.

An example of this would look like this:

var bsn = require("bootstrap.native");
var browser = require("mock-browser");
global.window = browser.createWindow();
global.document = browser.createDocument();

// Now it's safe to use bootstrap.native and expecting the properties to be the actual component classes.
var Button = bsn.Button(); // Create the button class and return it.

var $btn = document.createElement("button");
var myButton = new Button(... $btn and options ...); // Create a button and do a test.

Note About the Factory Methods

As mentioned above, the object properties of the exported object, when using require(), are actual classes when document and window are given - in which case we are sure to be facing an actual browser - and if absent, will be factory methods.

So when using bootstrap.native inside of a NodeJS app, make sure you create a proper Browser-like environment first to avoid unexpected behaviour.

Browser Support

The scripts are developed with clean code mainly for modern browsers that nativelly support HTML5. When using polyfills IE8-IE9 will thank you.

Custom Builds

You can make a custom build of bootstrap-native, including only the modules you need, by using the build.js script.


$ node build.js --help
node build.js [--minify] [--ignore=<modules>...|--only=<modules>...]

  --minify, -m  Minify output                         [boolean] [default: false]
  --ignore, -i  Omit the given module(s) from the bundle                 [array]
  --only        Only include the given module(s) in the bundle           [array]
  --help        Show help                                              [boolean]

Running without --ignore or --only will compile all the modules.
Writes to stdout

*nix users can run ./build.js as well as node build.js.
