We Love Code

A free template for a website for a fictional developer conference, for both Bootstrap 5 and Tailwind CSS.

About the Design of the Week

This project is a part of our Design of the Week series. Every week we create a unique custom design theme for Bootstrap 5 and Tailwind CSS and give it away for free.

Creating custom design themes for Bootstrap and Tailwind CSS is fun and easy with the Design panel in Pinegrow Web Editor 6. For example, you can just click on the Surprise me button and Pinegrow will come up with a unique design that you can use as it is, or tweak further.

You can download the project and use it for any purpose you want, with the exception that you should not resell the template as it is, or share it for free without attribution to Pinegrow. No attribution is required if you use the design or template to create your own projects.

This week’s design is called We Love Code, a website for a fictional developer conference.

The project is available in two versions: using Bootstrap 5 and Tailwind CSS.

The inspiration behind We Love Code

The main inspiration for the design is this photo by Samuel Pereira. The image comes from Unsplash.

The project has a single landing page that is fully responsive with the help of responsive on different screen sizes.

Theme settings

The following settings were used to create the theme:

Bootstrap Design Panel


The background image options use a simple trick that lets us use the selected image in different ways within the same project: selector is set to .poster, instead of the default body. This gives us the control over where to display the theme image.

To increase the readability of the text over the background we added a transparent layer with a gradient that goes from blue to black.

In the Bootstrap version this is achieved by the CSS background-image inline style property on the overlay:

In the Tailwind CSS version we are using Tailwind controls for creating the gradient background and setting the opacity of the overlay:

Download and use

Download and unzip the project files. Pinegrow works with standard HTML & CSS files. This means that you can use HTML and CSS files from this project anywhere, even without Pinegrow.

To explore and play with the design, open the unzipped folder as project in Pinegrow Web Editor 6 or newer.

Download the Bootstrap 5 project

To use the theme in your project just copy and include the bootstrap_theme/bootstrap.css file.

Download the Tailwind CSS project

Tailwind CSS theme file is optimized to only include the CSS rules that are used in the template. To generate the full CSS file, disable the Just in time compiler option in Tailwind CSS options dialog in the Design panel.
