Topic: Migrate an existing Bootstrap project to MDB5

somboo free asked 3 years ago

Expected behavior I expect to be able to update my existing Twitter Bootstrap 3 project to refer to MDB5 CDNs, add or remove any files needed, and then go through my existing code to update the UI to use MDB5 components without the need to build a whole new project and start over.

Actual behavior Installation instructions that I've found assume a new project and provide instructions that abstract the details of what MDB5 needs in order to function by telling you to just use the CLI. I want to know what the CLI is doing and what files are needed so that I can replicate that behavior manually within my existing project without having to do a bunch of trial and error.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

Hi. Unfortunately, we do not have instructions for migrating from Bootstrap 3 to MDB5. In the meantime, a lot of changes have happened and it would be a jump two versions up. Besides, as we mentioned in the MDB4 to MDB5 migration guide: we recommend that you create your project from scratch in MDB5, instead of updating old MDB 4 projects to MDB 5.

Thanks for confirming. I just wish I had known about this before I purchased the Pro version for my project. I guess I'll have to consider it a lesson learned.
