What is Bootstrap?

Bootstrap is an amazing web design framework that makes it easy to build responsive websites quickly and easily. Bootstrap was originally developed by Twitter to get more consistency across websites. Since it was released as an open-source framework in 2011, it has become one of the most popular web frameworks.

Nowadays, several users are moving away from desktop towards mobile therefore, a lot of websites need to be responsive.
Now, responsive is probably not the best term for what this means as a lot of people think that responsiveness means that the website will load up immediately or it has to be fast but that's not what responsive is at all. Responsiveness just means that it responds to the viewport. That means if you are looking at the same website on a mobile or on an iPad it should have a different layout to be able to best take advantage of the screen.

Now, What does it allow you to do?

Imagine you need a website with an attractive navigation bar, stylish buttons, nice typography, placeholders for text and images, a slider, and more-yet you aren’t a front-end developer. But what if these features were already coded for you, and you just had to write a little HTML to use them? This is Bootstrap. All the JavaScript code and CSS classes needed are already included in the Bootstrap package.

For example: If you want a button like this:

Then you can incorporate a predefined bootstrap class in your code without the hassle of writing long CSS codes.
