Bootstrap SASS Starter Kit

Why another Drupal theme? 

Unlike other popular Drupal themes whose primary purpose is that it can be used a a base theme to facilitate creating your own custom theme, the idea here is that you use this starter kit to create your own bootstrap 5 based theme. This means that all your dependencies are self contained in your custom theme. This removes the headache of having to worry about constantly overriding your base theme while also providing some sensible defaults that work with the bootstrap system. This also allows you to use and compile one of the pre built and tested Bootswatch themes that also provide some guidelines on how to create your own custom theme.
