Bertrand Mansion's Blog:
Twitter Bootstrap and the QuickForm2 Callback Renderer
September 26, 2011 @ 12:23:41

In a new post Bertrand Mansion shows how he combined the versatility of the PEAR QuickForm2 package and the Bootstrap project from Twitter to quickly make a form using the project's styling (CSS).

I don't know about you, but for me building HTML Forms and styling HTML Forms are maybe the most boring things in web development. It's repetitive and takes a lot of time to do things correctly. That's why tools like Twitter's Bootstrap and PEAR's HTML_QuickForm2 can help with this part of our job. Wouldn't it be nice to have QuickForm2 generate a markup compatible with Bootstrap CSS, so that you could get a nice looking form without to much efforts? Well, that's what I plan to do here.

He starts by creating a simple QuickForm2 form with no renderers attached (no pre-defined styles) and a custom render callback that wraps the items in "div" tags with the correct styles. There's also a custom renderer included for grouping items with additional styling attached.
