Created 3 years ago by Chris83How-tos1 comment – viewed 42,648 times – ( +14 ) – version 1.1
I discovered Twitter Bootstrap almost two years ago. After trying it out for a while I fell in love with it. It didn't take long before I realized that it would be great to write an extension that allowed developers to start using Bootstrap in their Yii projects. One night I sat down and started writing what later became my now popular bootstrap extension. Now that the extension is quite widely used in the community I felt that it was time to write about how to use Bootstrap to its full potential. If you use the Bootstrap CSS files you're really missing out on some great features. After reading this article you'll be able to take full advantage of Bootstrap using LESS.

With the adoption of PJax on Yii2 things  have change quite a bit with GridView when it comes to work with them in AJAX mode. It will probably be confusing at the beginning, but then you will soon realize how powerful the new approach is.
