What is Bootstrap?
Hello, in this blog, I’ll explain what Bootstrap is, the well-known CSS framework. Bootstrap has become a must-have tool for front-end developers.
It’s also a front-end development framework that enables developers and designers to quickly build fully responsive websites. If you’ve ever built a website and had to do all of the custom design with CSS, you know how time-consuming it can be. Bootstrap removes the need to write a lot of CSS code, allowing you to concentrate on web design. It’s still 100% free!
So, why is it good for developers?
Bootstrap’s Responsive Images
Bootstrap has its own code for resizing images automatically based on the current screen size. Simply give your images the .img-responsive class, and the predefined CSS rules will take care of the rest. With the addition of classes like img-circle, it can even change the shape of your images without having to switch back and forth between the code and your design software.
The documentation for Bootstrap is among the fines.
On their website, every line of code is described and explained in great detail. Code samples for basic implementation are included in the explanations, simplifying the process for even the most inexperienced of beginners. It’s as simple as picking a component, copying and pasting the code into your page, and tweaking from there.
Bootstrap, like many other open-source projects, is supported by a huge community of designers and developers. Developers can easily modify and add to Bootstrap’s code base since it is hosted on GitHub. It also makes it simple for people to cooperate, provide advice, and communicate with their peers and other users. There’s a Bootstrap Twitter account, a Bootstrap blog, and even a Bootstrap Slack room. That doesn’t even take into account the abundance of developers willing to assist with technical issues on Stack Overflow, where all questions with the bootstrap-4 tag can be found.
Bootstrap’s Responsive Grid
No need to spend hours coding your own grid — Bootstrap comes with a built-in grid system! You can now go ahead and start filling your containers with content. Using their extra small, small, medium, large, and extra large breaks, you can easily define custom breakpoints for each column. You can also simply use the default, as it may already meet your site’s requirements.
Bootstrap includes a slew of components that you can easily incorporate into your website, including:
- Navigation bars
- Progress bars
Not only will it be simple to add eye-catching design elements to your website, but you can also rest assured that they will all look great regardless of the screen size or device used to view them.
I hope this blog has helped you understand why you should consider using bootstrap! Below I will add their documentation page so you can get a better understanding!
