In web development, everyone is familiar with the term bootstrap. Bootstrap framework is very well-known to web developers to provide them with responsive websites. However, not everyone quite knows how a responsive website works when you use bootstrap (aside from the actual developers).

Here is a quick introduction the the structure and function that Bootstrap provides.

Importance of a Framework

Bootstrap has a huge open-source community, making it appealing to its many users. While it is not hugely important that one use a framework, it can help in the following ways:

  • Preventing repeats between projects
  • Utilizing responsive design allowing your website to adapt to various screen sizes – mobile, desktop, and everything in between
  • Adding consistency to design and code between projects and developers
  • Easily and quickly prototype new designs

With Bootstrap, you can easily make sure that your projects will work well in whatever browser you are working on.

Bootstrap consists of Less stylesheets, a dynamic style sheet language that can be compiled into Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and run on the client side or server side. Bootstrap helps control things such as color and padding of various components. This is done with HTML structure, CSS declarations, and in some cases accompanying JavaScript code. Variable layouts are what makes the websites responsive. They provide a uniform, modern appearance for formatting the text, tables, and form elements for the site.

Re-usable components

Bootstrap contains other commonly used interface elements in addition to the regular HTML elements, . The components are implemented as CSS classes, then applied to certain HTML elements in a page.

JavaScript components

Several JavaScript components come in Bootstrap in the form of jQuery plugins. These provide additional UI elements such as dialog boxes, tooltips, and carousels. Components extend the functionality of some existing interface elements, like autocomplete  functions on forms.
