Introducing Bootstrap

Simply put, Bootstrap is a frontend framework for faster and easier web development in the new standard of the mobile-first philosophy. It uses HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. In August 2010, Twitter released Bootstrap as open source.

There are quite a few similar frontend frameworks available in the industry, but Bootstrap is arguably by far the most popular in the lot. It is evident when we see Bootstrap is the most starred project in GitHub since 2012.

Until now, you must be in a position to fathom why and where we need to use Bootstrap for web development; however, just to recap, here are the points in short:

  • The mobile-first approach
  • A responsive design
  • Automatic browser support and handling
  • Easy to adapt and get going
