Twitter recently joined the companies which provide such tools to web developers which help them do a better work. Let's check out quickly what Bootstrap is about!
1. What is Bootstrap?
It is a front-end development kit, basically an HTML and CSS collection of conventions, all this spiced with the latest browser technologies.
2. What's inside?
Inside there are mainly seven parts:
- reset.less, Eric Meyer's modified css reset
- preboot.css, color settings and all kind of mixins
- scaffolding.less, layout, page template and grid rules
- type.less, font rulesets
- patterns.less, popups, tooltips and such
- forms.less, form style
- tables.less, all kinds of rules for tabular data
As you may see, Bootstrap is based on the Less Framework, because of its obvious advantages.
