Why is Bootstrap so Popular?

This post highlights several Bootstrap features that make it a popular choice for HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

If you decide to search for the top five frontend frameworks today, there is a high probability that Bootstrap will be mentioned among them.

This is no coincidence, as Bootstrap has consistently offered immense value to developers who use it.

Bootstrap was officially released in 2011, and has gone through various changes and updates in order to become the stable and reliable framework that it is today.

Let’s discuss what exactly Bootstrap is, and why it is so popular.

What is it?

Bootstrap is an HTML, CSS, and JavaScript framework that helps developers build mobile-first responsive websites in little to no time. Bootstrap does the background work for its users, which leaves them with more time to focus on the website design and how they want their website to appear.

Bootstrap has been used to build many great websites such as Taskade.com, CRIT-research, saleor.io, Super Mario Odyssey, and many more.

To see some more amazing websites created with Bootstrap, you can check out this link for Bootstrap website examples.

By calling Bootstrap a framework, It means that it was created to be part of the building blocks of the application being built, and it can be customized to one’s own taste and style. Frameworks like Bootstrap do not function on their own — we still need to write code that utilizes the framework’s features.

Now let’s talk about why Bootstrap is as popular as it is.

An impressive documentation

In the developer community, and the world at large, documentations are like maps: official guides on how something works and the ways in which it can be used. Bootstrap has a very impressive documentation. Extremely detailed, and beginner friendly.

A person new to Bootstrap can visit the website and get started with its features in less than ten minutes. Its features are well explained, and visual examples as well as code examples of how it works are included in the documentation. You get to see how features work, the code responsible for creating such features, and a visual representation of that code on a web page.

There are so many Bootstrap components ranging from Jumbotron, a lightweight component used to showcase key marketing messages on a site, to Carousels, which are “slideshow for cycling through a series of content.” With such a feature-packed toolkit, it gets quite easy for a new person to become overwhelmed. However, the documentation takes care of that issue with well explained, easy to understand writing that makes you want to start using Bootstrap immediately.

A welcoming community

We all thrive when there are people backing us and when we have a community that we can go to whenever we have issues or want to display something new that we came up with. Bootstrap provides just that for developers when it comes to community.

Due to being around for quite a while, it has gathered a lot of users who have become near experts or even experts when it comes to using Bootstrap. This makes it easier for newbies to get help when they ask for it, and also to solve problems they come across when using the toolkit.

When you surf the net for Bootstrap tutorials, you will find hundreds of them. There are a lot of tutorials to guide users on how to use Bootstrap, and on how to customize it in order to create amazing pages. However, this does not mean that the documentation does not do enough. Rather, it shows that people have learnt from the documentation, and have also found new ways to achieve various things that they now want to share with the world.

On Bootstrap’s website, there is also a link to a Slack channel, which is for all things Bootstrap. You will easily see a lot of groups and communities on the Internet dedicated to working with Bootstrap and helping beginners advance in their Bootstrap journey.

A powerful grid system

One of the amazing features of Bootstrap is its grid system and the responsiveness that it offers. When used appropriately, Bootstrap makes responsive design relatively easy.

Bootstrap operates a 12 column grid system, which gives users the freedom to customize their pages differently for various device view widths.

For instance, one may decide to make items on a page occupy the full view width on smaller screens and a quarter of the device’s width on extra large screens. This comes naturally with Bootstrap, so there is no stress when trying to implement the feature.

Bootstrap has the ability to make its components, images, and the webpage as a whole responsive through the use of its predefined class prefix.

Its responsiveness caters for all screen sizes ranging from extra small to, medium, large, and extra large.

How Bootstrap grid system works across multiple devices.

Responsiveness is an extremely important feature, because now, more than ever, there are many different devices used in viewing websites and web applications, and a website that is not responsive creates a bad user experience. Using Bootstrap’s grid system makes responsiveness one less thing to worry about while working.
