Bootstrap Basics

Bootstrap

    Bootstrap is the most popular free, open source HTML, CSS and Javascript framework. It was developed by twitter for quickly creating responsive web applications. It provides design templates for common user interface components like buttons, dropdowns, forms, tables, navigation etc. You can use it with any web application built with any server-side technology like .Net, Java, PHP, Python and more. The advantage of using bootstrap is that it helps us create responsive web applications, faster. Like Flexbox, Bootstrap automatically adapts to different screen sizes for optimal viewing and user experience.

     Bootstrap saves a lot of development time. Instead of writing a responsive website from the ground up, Bootstrap provides ready-made blocks of code you can use and customize to suit your specific needs. It has a large community base as well as excellent documentation, meaning it can easily be used for rapid development of responsive websites with little technical preparation. Using Bootstrap for a webpage or application gives it a level of professional consistency, that most of the world is already used to, even if we are reusing code.

Layout Grid

One of the most powerful aspects of Bootstrap is the built-in grid system.  It’s based on 12 columns. Containers can be set to Small, Medium, Large or Extra Large width for responsive viewing across all sizes of viewing platforms.
