In case anyone is interested, we have a new project for agent XML stylesheets that use the popular Bootstrap styling framework. This is used to replace the default stylesheets that come with the cpaagent. The new stylesheets add a better appearance and also provides a responsive interface that looks good on any device (PC, tablet, mobile, etc.) as well as adds links to run the Probe, Current, and Sample requests using the navbar that stays at the top of the page. The stylesheet requires jquery for bootstrap which also opens the door for many other possible functionalities.

This can easily be customized for OEM's that provide an Agent for their machines where they can use their company colors and logo (with a link back to their website).

This is a new project and we welcome any contributions. If you have any questions, you can use GitHub or email us directly at info@trakhound.org.

This is fantastic, thanks for putting it together and sharing it.

When I was messing with Bootstrap I had a really small site but ran into problems upgrading to new versions of Bootstrap without rebuilding the whole site. When I was looking at a second round of updates I just dug for change under the couch cushions and moved the site to SquareSpace.

I don't see how there could be any security risk or broken features associated with using an old Bootstrap framework, although it would limit the ability to add new features. I also doubt most manufacturers moving to Bootstrap would even notice the lack of new features if they are on an old version of the framework. How do you guys see updates working, though?

Yeah for the basic features needed for this application, older versions of bootstrap should be fine. Possibly as the project grows we can incorporate updated features and any updates can always be installed easily by just replacing the files in the /styles/ directory of the Agent. Since the bootstrap files (and jquery) are referenced locally, there shouldn't be any update issues for previously installed instances as opposed to if they were referenced using CDN links which could possibly cause issues.

Thanks for your interest in this project and feel free to contribute!
