Hi Prashant,

That is correct, we have not added in the additional functionality to allow for composed looks. We have found composed looks are better for collaboration sites or other more simple rebranding efforts. If someone wants to attempt a branding overhaul with a framework such as Bootstrap, the idea was that composed looks would not be used.

We will see what we can to do include composed look functionality though.

Thanks for the prompt reply. Do you have any guideline/Idea, I am interested to extend the current bootstrap release to include composed looks and like to contribute to this project as well.

If you have understanding and point to guidelines/good resources to implement this, I can start on this.

Thanks again

Probably the best article I know of can be found at The more difficult aspect of this process will be updating the custom bootstrap stylesheet to make use of the special tagging SharePoint is looking for to replace colors, fonts and whatnot. This is very similar to how themes used to work in SP 2010.
