Bootstrap

Bootstrap Development

Bootstrap is what we call a framework. A good way of explaining it is like playing with legos. Lets say you’re building a cool skyscraper out of legos, going brick by brick is slow, and you could accidentally put a wrong color brick in there if you’re not paying attention. Bootstrap is like having a collection of different pre-built pieces of that tower that you repeat until you get to the top. So that tower that would take you 5 hours to build brick by brick, you can do in 1 hour. once you’ve got the main parts of the tower all built you can fine tune it with the itty bitty details. Bootstrap is a commonly used CSS HTML and Javascript framework that enables rapid development of responsive websites. It makes coding a site a breeze.

Excellent Features

Preprocessors

Using a preprocessor such as SASS lets you make these changes in a much easier and more organized fashion. Bootstrap on the other hand, has premade CSS and JQuery plugins to ensure mobile-first, better style and responsive rendering of your website. You have everything customized on bootstrap, and you may not need to do any customization (if, indeed you prefer).

Framework.

Bootstrap is a free and open-source collection of tools for creating websites and web applications. It contains HTML- and CSS-based design templates for typography, forms, buttons, navigation and other interface components, as well as optional JavaScript extensions.

Full of features

Bootstrap has everything you need for quick prototyping, from a grid system to icons. Get something visual and functional fast so you can discuss layout and functionality as fast as possible with your team or the client fast (Agile development), worry about the specifics of design later.

Bootstrap is a front-end development framework that enables developers & designers to quickly build fully responsive websites. The framework contains global CSS settings with built-in components and extensible classes in the form of typography, navigation, buttons and much more. It was initially development as an internal tool by former Twitter employees and was later released as an open source project on Github. The framework uses a 12 point fluid grid system and a variety of ready-made UI components.

 

Many people uses it for Responsive Design. Twitter Bootstrap is a superhero in the field of CSS Frameworks. This is definitely true when it comes to building responsive websites. In More Words, Bootstrap is a sleek, intuitive, and powerful mobile first front-end framework for faster and easier web development.

You can use it as below:

  • Responsive Design − Bootstrap’s responsive CSS adjusts to Desktops, Tablets and Mobiles.
  • Mobile first approach − Since Bootstrap 3 and 4, the framework consists of Mobile first styles throughout the entire library instead of in separate files.
  • Easy to get started − With just the knowledge of HTML and CSS anyone can get started with Bootstrap. Also the Bootstrap official site has a good documentation.
  • Browser Support − It is supported by all popular browsers.
  • It contains beautiful and functional built-in components which are easy to customize.
  • Provides a clean and uniform solution for building an interface for developers.
  • Provides web based customization.
  • Best of all it is an open source (No need to pay).

One great thing that separates Bootstrap from other frameworks is that it comes bundled with a selection of reusable components and jQuery plugins. You may use them; you may not. That is the beauty of Bootstrap; you have the choice and control.
