Category: Kendo UI for jQuery
Type: Feature Request
A kendo UI kind of bootstrap / foundation with html elements.
My number one suggestion for Kendo UI would be a Kendo UI kind of bootstrap / foundation. 

We all know Twitter Bootstrap and Zurb Foundation. The main advantage of these html frameworks are in my opinion:

#1. Rapid development of layouts
#2. html elements are supported (forms, tables, buttons)
#3. Reponsive (and in some cases fluid) grid. 
#4. Usuable threwout the internet (ie, firefox, chrome, safari etc).
#5. User Friendly to start and work with.

In the first place I am not suggesting to integrate one of those (that would be my second..) My first suggestion is, make one of your own (fork it or what ever? to start) So that we have not only a html foundation of the project, the elements are also fully integrated with each other. So you can have one uniform theme threw out the whole website / project.

So.. That is my first suggestion, and ofcourse the second one related to this one is, when you guys dont want to create your own, integrate a (lets call it css/html framework) that is fluid (because in my opinion, kendo ui is really for business software, and with fluid width you can have more information on your screen..) 

Hopefully you take this suggestion in consideration. It would really make a different!

Slated for our Q3 2013 release (Nov). That said, we are not planning to add a full-on layout/grid framework to Kendo UI at this point. Instead, we will be making all Kendo UI widgets container aware and also providing a resizing API. Kendo UI widgets will play very well with Bootstrap, Foundation or any grid system you choose to leverage.

Now that Microsoft has adopted bootstrap as the default project template, it would just make sense for Kendo to allow the use of the framework as well instead of some proprietary stylesheet.  I know - easier said than done.

I was trying to use kendoUI together twitter bootstrap, but there seems to bee just too many rendering glitches and problems :(

The main problems seems to arise from the fact that the number of available kendoUI components is quite small compared to e.g. Sencha ExtJS, so Twitter Bootstrap et. co. seems to supply quite allot of this missing stuff, but than it breaks the existing ones :(

Agree with this comment Twitter Bootstrap can do the job for older browsers for newer browsers the HTML 5 built in Features can do the job.

I would change that to be the first suggestion.  Bootstrap is sooooo popular and easy to use, Kendo UI would be better served to just use the standards built into Twitter Bootstrap.  The Bootstrap theme currently in Kendo UI is NOTHING like Twitter Bootstrap.

I mean look how clean the Pagination looks here:

Compared to here:

And the forms here:

compared to here:

Kendo UI's bootstrap isn't nearly as nice as Twitter Bootstrap.

The Boostrap theme needs to look more like Bootstrap, no insight borders on the controls, etc ... right now it's pretty much just the colors.

When can we expect Kendo to work with Zurb? Foundation's development is now a lot more interesting than Bootstrap.

Or add framework-capabilities like

Reuze is a teeny-tiny front end framework that makes structuring HTML and CSS for mid-to-large sized content-rich sites a breeze. It plays nice with other frameworks such as Foundation and Boostrap but also works equally well on it's own.

Quickly create semantic HTML5 code blocks that conveniently sit in 'namespaced' containers ('.ac' for article content as an example) and download the accompanying 10KB (or less) of CSS awesomeness from Github. It's responsive, IE8-friendly and topped up with RDFa Lite goodness!

I think just some guidance on how to use the Kendo UI navigation items with Zurb Foundation would be good.  The standard controls work just fine.

I would like just a Twitter Bootstrap theme, that's all... Just a theme with the same height and default width's on input elements.

Zurb Foundation looks really cool!
