Here is a list of five of our favorite themes and site collections. In future videos we will be getting into much more detail on how bootstrap themes can be imported and used inside Odoo.

  1. WrapBootStrap.Com - This quality website features perhaps the most complete collection of bootstrap themes in all categories. While many of these are not free even the most expensive themes typically only run $35-40 and typically offer a great deal of value for the money. With hundreds of templates to choose from there is a bootstrap theme on this site for just about everyone.
  2. SB Admin 2 - This is an admin theme that we plan to provide future videos on exactly how to import a more dynamic theme with javascript into Odoo. If you work with Bootstrap this is a great free theme with plenty of built in features.
  3. - This site has a great collection of clean themes that are both free and can be downloaded (at this time) without having to login to the website. We most certainly will be moving some of these quality free themes into Odoo and provding you videos and source on how we accomplish each conversion.
  4. AdminLTE Bootstrap Template - This is another free bootstrap theme that we will be building instructional videos on how to move into Odoo.
  5. - While this site may not have as many premium templates it has a very solid selection of free templates and custom templates that provide a different look and style than many of the standard bootstrap themes.
