To install latest version via NPM simply run:

$ npm install awesome-bootstrap-checkbox # for Bootstrap 4 version
$ npm install [email protected] # for Bootstrap 3 version

There is a separate file for Bootstrap 4 version.

Then just include awesome-bootstrap-checkbox.css somewhere in your HTML, or add the equivalent files to your Sass / Less configuration. Next, everything is based on code convention. Here is checkbox markup from Bootstrap site:

<form role="form">
  <div class="checkbox">
      <input type="checkbox"> Check me out

We have to alter it a bit:

<form role="form">
  <div class="checkbox">
    <input type="checkbox" id="checkbox1">
    <label for="checkbox1">
        Check me out

That's it. It will work. But it will not work if you nest input inside label or put label before input.

If you want to enable Opera 12 and earlier support just add class styled to input element:

<input type="checkbox" id="checkbox1" class="styled">

Browser support

  • Firefox (3.6+)
  • Chrome (14+)
  • IE (9+)
  • Opera (11.6+)
  • Safari (6+)


It's the same for radios. Markup has to be the following:

<form role="form">
  <div class="radio">
      <input type="radio" name="radio2" id="radio3" value="option1">
      <label for="radio3">
  <div class="radio">
      <input type="radio" name="radio2" id="radio4" value="option2" checked>
      <label for="radio4">

Brand Colors and other features

You may use checkbox-primary, checkbox-danger, radio-info, etc to style checkboxes and radios with brand bootstrap colors.

checkbox-circle is for rounded checkboxes.

Inputs without label text:

<div class="checkbox">
  <input type="checkbox" class="styled" id="singleCheckbox1" value="option1" aria-label="Single checkbox One">

Using Sass

As per example in the demo folder, to use Font Awesome you'll have to @import the following library parts:

@import "../bower_components/bootstrap-sass-official/assets/stylesheets/bootstrap/variables";
@import "../bower_components/bootstrap-sass-official/assets/stylesheets/bootstrap/mixins";

@import "../bower_components/Font-Awesome/scss/variables";

@import "../awesome-bootstrap-checkbox";

Adjust this to the path where your bootstrap and font-awesome files are located.

Using Less

Just like the Sass setup, you'll have to @import the following library parts:

@import "../bower_components/bootstrap/less/variables";
@import "../bower_components/bootstrap/less/mixins";

@import "../awesome-bootstrap-checkbox";

@import "../bower_components/Font-Awesome/less/variables";

Custom icon font

If you want to use another icon font instead of Font Awesome, such as Glyphicons, override the default variables:

$font-family-icon: 'Glyphicons Halflings';
$check-icon: "\e013";

.checkbox label:after {
    padding-left: 4px;
    padding-top: 2px;
    font-size: 9px;

or for Less:

@font-family-icon: 'Glyphicons Halflings';
@check-icon: "\e013";

// Same styles as the Sass example...

Or for plain CSS, override the .checkbox class (and .styled class for Opera):

input[type="checkbox"].styled:checked + label:after,
input[type="radio"].styled:checked + label:after,
.checkbox input[type=checkbox]:checked + label:after {
    font-family: 'Glyphicons Halflings';
    content: "\e013";

input[type="checkbox"].styled:checked label:after,
input[type="radio"].styled:checked label:after,
.checkbox label:after {
    padding-left: 4px;
    padding-top: 2px;
    font-size: 9px;
