Our labs section is a collection of simple utilities which make our lives easier and which we want to share with you.

Over the years we have developed several features we and our customers find useful in day to day website development. We have decided to share these features with the world, in particular with a Business Catalyst community, and give something back to the community.

Some of the apps here will be in alpha and beta versions, so please go easy on us :). If you think some of these can be improved or if you have an idea for a new feature, please get in touch.

HTML Form to Bootstrap Form markup converter

Business Catalyst form builder is an amazing tool. But when it comes to a HTML markup it produces there aren't that many options. It simply dumps a form as a table. This may be fine for a lot of sites, but if you're working on a lot of Business Catalyst sites and you're using Bootstrap framework, it can be a laborious task converting all the forms from a HTML table into Bootstrap markup.

Since a lot of our work is helping Business Catalyst partners in building the sites for their clients, we have developed a converter which allows you to simply paste in a HTML form code BC produces into a text box, hit submit button and as a result get a properly formatted Bootstrap form, which you can then paste into a webpage. It contains all the Bootstrap classes and markup, while retaining the field names, so that the Business Catalyst form can function properly.
