Anyone want to collaborate on a WordPress Theme?

I like the basic yet elegant look of Twitter Bootstrap, so I decided I would try creating a WordPress Genesis theme based on Bootstrap, which I intend to start using on my blog.

It's a big job, so I'm opening it up for others to help out. I've made a start and put the project on GitHub, but there's still a long way to go. It would be really helpful if I could get some pros on board. :)

Update: I'm not interested in this project anymore.

Hey Charles, very cool! You might want to try connecting with this guy: https://github.com/GrindPress/Bootstrap-genesis-child. Looks like he shares your sentiment and interest :)

Thanks for the link Zac. But there's a slight problem. That theme has no CSS, only SASS and LESS. I have no experience with either of them in any form, let alone as part of a WordPress theme.

I'd love to try out that theme, but I think I'll need some help installing it. It won't work out of the box will it?

Hey Charles, yes you have a good point. I would still reach out to him though to, at the least, have a good contact with someone thinking like you ;)

I started building a Bootstrap-inspired Wordpress theme as well (following along with a recent Treehouse blog post) and remembered seeing this forum post. I'll take a look and see if I can contribute anything. I'm still getting my feet wet, so it may be some time before I'm brave enough to commit any changes.
