Twitter Bootstrap is a front end framework to develop web apps and sites. It provides the basic modules used in such development projects (like Grid, Typography, Tables, Forms, and Responsiveness). It also comprises other useful and free front end components like Dropdown menus, Navigation, Modals, Typehead, Pagination, Carousal, Breadcrumb, Tab, Thumbnails, Headers etc. With such tools a web project could be completed pretty quickly and easily.
For most of the newbies here, which include me ;), it provides a very good base to start the web development without even knowing much of HTML or CSS. Even with very little knowledge in this field, one may develop great sites by deploying it directly or first customizing it to look exclusive and then using it…
To use Bootstrap in an HTML page, simply download the CSS stylesheet and include a link to this script in the HTML file:
<link href=”http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/twitter-bootstrap/2.3.2/css/bootstrap-combined.no-icons.min.css” rel=”stylesheet”>
Bootstrap consists essentially of a series of ‘LESS’ stylesheets which implement the various components of the toolkit. The central configuration stylesheet can’t be utilized for all types of adjustments… many of the changes could be applied only through these ‘LESS’ declarations.
