Mark Otto and Jacob Thornton developed Bootstrap on Twitter as a means to improve the consistency of the tools used on the site and reduce maintenance. The software was previously known as Twitter Blueprint and is sometimes referred to as Twitter Bootstrap.

Responsive design allows a web page or application to determine the size and orientation of the visitor's screen and automatically adapt the display accordingly; the first mobile approach involves the use of smartphones, tablets and mobile applications focused on specific tasks, are the primary tools of employees to perform work and meet the requirements of these technologies in design.

Like any efficient front-end framework, Bootstrap includes CSS, HTML, and JavaScript or JS components. It adheres to flexible web design standards, allowing you to develop flexible sites with all complexities and sizes.

Since it is constantly updated, Bootstrap usually includes the latest and best features. For example, he added topics that were consistent with Google's material design guidelines shortly after they were published, and were updated to use Sass as a CSS preprocessor.

  • Extended documentation

Minuses:

  • The original file size is 276 KB due to an excessive number of rarely used styles
  • An excessive number of HTML classes and Dom elements can be messy and confusing
  • Ideal for beginners and those who prefer a robust external interface.
