@apsavin No. I'm just asking. I want to use BEM but most of the work I get in Bootstrap only. I mean people request to use bootstrap only

@jitendravyas I've tryed to do that. Atm just using some blocks like glyphs
The main problem is bootstrap has custom classes and project structure and that's hard to use just needed parts of it

yes
it's hard to use any new approach unless whole team is intersted in it

And to use it correctly we should refactor their modules (widgets/blocks), write dependencies, etc.
ye
Actually, it would be great if bootstrap will support BEM-like naming and file structures

but to do that they will have to be convinced that BEM approach is better for maintainability of large projects

Actually, they should consider it for themselves
They can build anything for end-user
Even several options
I mean several different builds
