Twitter Bootstrap Review

Twitter Bootstrap, which was renamed to simply Bootstrap, is am amazing tool for web developers. It is now my favorite way to get a new site going. As a developer, I feel it is powerful and flexible, but not bloated. It is just the right tools for almost any project. Check out their official website here. It comes in a very light and simple package that includes:

  • bootstrap.css - Basic classes for setting up a standard 12 grid, styles for buttons, and things like carousel and hero elements
  • bootstrap.js - Comes with many useful things including drop down menus, default & auto clearing text for input elements
  • glyphicons.png - 140 icons that can be easily used

 

Here is a list of features from their own site:

  • Button groups
  • Button dropdowns
  • Navigational tabs, pills, and lists
  • Navbar
  • Labels
  • Badges
  • Page headers and hero unit
  • Thumbnails
  • Alerts
  • Progress bars
  • Modals
  • Dropdowns
  • Tooltips
