Introduction to Bootstrap


Bootstrap, from Twitter, is currently a popular front-end framework. Bootstrap is based on HTML, CSS, and JAVASCRIPT, which is concise and flexible, making web development faster. It is a CSS/HTML framework developed in collaboration with Twitter designers Mark Otto and Jacob Thornton. Bootstrap provides elegant HTML and CSS specifications, written by the dynamic CSS language Less. Bootstrap has been popular since its launch and has always been a popular open source project on GitHub, including NASA’s MSNBC (Microsoft National Broadcasting Corporation) Breaking News. Some frameworks that domestic mobile developers are familiar with, such as the WeX5 front-end open-source framework, are also based on Bootstrap source code for performance optimization.
