Playing with the toys… Bootstrap, from Twitter

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

BootstrapRecently I discovered Bootstrap from Twitter. As mentioned on the website "Bootstrap is a toolkit from Twitter designed to kickstart development of webapps and sites. It includes base CSS and HTML for typography, forms, buttons, tables, grids, navigation, and more." And it is very nice.

But you never truly know how good a tool will be until you try it. In the last few days I have used Bootstrap for two small projects – one internal project at SiteHost where I work, and then again today when I built a webpage for my mothers shop in a couple of hours: www.chandelle.co.nz.

I have to say I am impressed and will be using Bootstrap again for sure. It does for CSS layouts what jQuery does for JavaScript – streamlined, elegant, and so easy to use. Highly recommended.
