How to... Bootstrap

The Complete Guide to Bootstrap 4

I have worked with Bootstrap a lot. I've contributed to the Bootstrap docs, and rank first for Bootstrap on Stack Overflow. I feel more than prepared to share with you everything you need to know about it. With this article, I hope to demystify Bootstrap in a clear and understandable way.

First, let's talk about you. I hope that if you're reading this you have a good understanding of HTML and CSS. If you haven't built any Websites, don't know what CSS Specificity is, or don't know the difference between using #abc and .abc in CSS, this is NOT the article for you. Instead you should learn the basics of HTML and CSS.

"I've tried using Bootstrap, but it seems like getting
anything to work is difficult or impossible."

I hear you. You're not alone. I've answered over 2,000 Bootstrap related questions, and have seen many frustrated Bootstrap users. Do yourself a huge favor: Read this article, the documentation, and don't try to force things. In about 30 mins, I will show you that Bootstrap is easy, elegant and sensible.
