Bootstrap the tool that facilitates the development of a web page
by Gaurav Gupta
The evolution of the Internet has been accompanied in its growth by the enrichment of its language to turn a web page into a place where the user can interact making efforts, seeking information and leaving opinions in the same in a friendly and simple way.
The development of web pages, mainly revolves around the HTML language (Hyper Text Markup Language), which in recent years has received help to enhance the design and format of the same part of the CSS language, (Cascading Style Sheet), which contributed also contributed to expediting the load on browsers.
Although the tool that we are dealing with today, Bootstrap , was born in 2011, as an initiative to accelerate the creation of web pages, it has now established itself as an indispensable framework for developers who are dedicated to Creation and web design.
Today it is one of the most popular open-source projects in Github with more than 14,000 collaborators and is highly responsive to having high compatibility with major browsers (this means that developers have the peace of mind that their codes are interpreted correctly and users visualize what they want to express through them.)
But concretely, what is Bootstrap that does not contribute CSS with its style sheet? Basically what the framework does is to preconfigure classes (which are definitions of styles associated with the different tags that we use in the HTML language) and with them allow to greatly simplify the code that had to write before to achieve the same result.
To make it more graphic. If we wanted to design in our page a navigation bar with a menu for the user with the conventional CSS system, we had to use a significant number of attributes whose combination allows us to achieve the goal of achieving a design that we consider appropriate for the style of the page.
With Bootstrap all that group of attributes and combinations of them, is condensed into a class (in this example would be the nav class) and simply placing in the HTML code said class we achieve the same objective as before cost us more time and typing.
This central idea of preconfiguring formats, styles, design and colors in a class allows a wide range of possibilities that have no limits as the codes that are used are not new, but are one hundred percent compatible with accepted codes By the browsers.
