Frontend Development with Bootstrap

Posted on Updated on

Bootstrap is an open-source HTML, CSS, JavaScript framework. It’s developed by Mark Otto and Jacob Thornton at Twitter. It is a combination of HTML, CSS, and Javascript code designed to help build user interface components. Bootstrap was also programmed to support both HTML5 and CSS3.

Also it is called Front-end-framework

Features

Here are few of the rich features of Bootstrap which justify its use in creating a responsive web site:

  • Bootstrap Templates– This extremely popular HTML/CSS framework rides on the success of the contributions made by the open-source community. A large number of templates (free and paid) are available to get you started.
  • jQuery– jQuery plugins are an essential part of the framework and include the best of user interface design features such as carousel, typeahead, scroll spy, dialog boxes and a lot more.
  • Built-In Style Elements–Bootstrap combines beautiful typography into sites and applications by including many HTML style attributes such as Fonts, icons, tables, buttons, etc.
  • LESS– Twitter Bootstrap styles are not available in LESS. The code compilation speed is around 6 times faster than SAAS resulting in faster webpage loading.
  • Responsiveness – Bootstrap is responsive. If you shift from a laptop to an iPad and from an iPad to a Mac you won’t have to fret over your work. Bootstrap adapts to the change in platforms with super speed and efficiency.

Advantages of Bootstrap

Save lots of time — You can save lots of time and efforts using the Bootstrap design templates and classes and concentrate on other development work.

Responsive features — Using Bootstrap you can easily create responsive designs.

Consistent design — All Bootstrap components use the same design templates and styles through a central library, so that the designs and layouts of your web pages are consistent throughout your development.

Conclusion

After reading all this, if you think Bootstrap can help you as a web developer then check out the platform here: twitter.github.com/bootstrap/. You can either download a compiled version or get the Bootstrap source which has original CSS and JavaScript docs.

Be aware that you do need a working knowledge of web development concepts like HTML and CSS. The documentation that comes with the platform can help walk you through the different tools and components you’ll be working with, for example Base CSS, Scaffolding, JS plugins, etc. If there’s any other information that you’re looking for, head over to Bootstrap docs.
