Nice collection of dashboards. You article focus has been on dashboard, but there many bootstrap templates from front-end. Here I recommend to try the Startup bootstrap builder and their bootstrap templates.

Maybe you could write another article with bootstrap templates for websites or landing pages.

Thanks, looks good!
A small thing might be the missing tool chain (gulp, browsersync) to write faster new things on top.
