Yeah,
I watched this about one year ago and hoped that this will end in a contribution which might be added to standard MantisBT.
I have seen some efforts like this one: Great start, but not enough time to get it finished. :(

I'm actually working on a template system for mantis.

The default theme is based on bootstrap and template is built with Twig.

Image

Progress so far (started a month ago, based on 1.2.14)
- 60-70% pages done (template files and changed php and core/*api files)
- added some twig macros to (dramasticaly) reduce template code
- added some twig functions to call basic functions from template, instead of passing the output as variable to the template ... e.g. {{ _('my_string'') }} is the same as lang_get('my_string') in *page.php
- replaced Graph-Plugin with chart.js (nearly done)
- some js ...

ToDos:
- finish templates, core edits
- add template inheritance
- change custom error handler
- add some twig filters ... e.g. instead of pass username, user_realname, user_avatar as vars to template, it needs only one var user (userID). From template you can call user|profile_link, user|realname or user|avatar(50) ...
- replace all js with bootstrap built-in or jquery functions
- some styling
- tests ...

Let me know if you're interessted in.

S.R., you should
a) write also to the mantisbt-dev mailing list as this is a better place for such kind of discussion http://www.mantisbt.org/mailinglists.php
b) host your code as a fork of our repository https://github.com/mantisbt/mantisbt

Hi,

i have re-designed MantisBT with nice and clean style with little tweaks and re-arranged the modules on display.
i am working on complete responsive design of the Mantis and few other cool features.

The work done so far uploaded at github for free you may download and install the mantis upgreaded version, unfortunatly there is not possible to design a theme with some such nice feature and design which i did for my personal use. But its released for other now.

Download and install just as you did with regular MantisBT installation.

Enjoy.

Nice look. It's a pity that you didn't fork our repository but started your own separate development.
What will happen if we fix bugs in MantisBT? What will happen if we release version 1.3 of MantisBT? ...
My recommendation at the moment: Do not download and install if you want to get updates, fixes and support from MantisBT team.

I also broke the rules and started my own effort for a CSS based heavily on the work of others as I needed to get it done quickly. I will next try to port this into a fork of the 1.3.x branch.

Hi S.R, did you complete your template system. It looks very cool. Maybe you could update here if you read this. Thanks bro.
