What is Bootstrap?
For those web developers who don’t know Bootstrap, you should check it out.
The project is a HTML5/CSS3/JS framework that allows you to hit the ground running with adaptive/responsive columns (like 960.gs, but responsive); typography, table, button and message formatting, featuring glyphicons; every component you could dream of, like buttons for pagination, buttons for WYSIWYG widgets, modals, breadcrumbs, progress bars, content tabs, navbars, etc. Can I just say everything yet?
Best of all, it is stunning in webkit-based browsers, free and open source and you’re able to use it in commercial projects thanks to the Apache license.
It builds with NPM (of Node.js fame) and uses LESS if you download the uncompiled version. Using LESS means you can change branding colours, padding, rounded corners, drop shadows, etc. with one variable change and it will effect the whole project.
