What is BOOTSTRAP exactly?

Bootstrap is ‘mobile-first’ front end framework developed by a couple of engineers at Twitter (hence the name), it was originally designed to help provide some consistency across tools the guys were building internally. Since its first public (open source) release in 2011 (see the blog post here) it has found huge popularity among web developers for its ease of use and feature set, and in 2012 was the most popular project on GitHub. that allows for developing websites and custom applications that are cross-browser and cross-device compatible (responsive). Some of the key features of Twitter Bootstrap are:

  • Responsive design Base CSS For Typography, code, Tables, Forms, Buttons
  • Web UI Component Dropdowns, Buttons, Navigation menu, Labels, Breadrumbs, Pagination, Thumbnails, Alerts, Progress bars
  • JavaScript plugins Modal, Dropdown, Scrollspy, Tab, Tooltip, Popover, Alert, Button, Collapse, Carousel and Typehead
  • Built on LESS A CSS grid system for designing adaptive websites
  • Cross platform Ensures that the output is consistent across platforms & browsers
  • Integration Simple, fast and easy to work with existing sites
  • Compatibility Takes into account the future design & development standards e.g. HTML5 & CSS3
  • Open Source Allows developers to participate and add their contribution to be used by other bootstrap developers

BBOOTS fans say:

User Review (customized template : Dave has been an absolute pleasure to work with! First of all his communication through email has been incredibly good and he makes sure everything you want is done to the way you want it. What impressed me the most is that with just being given the basic idea of what I wanted for my custom theme he offered several ideas of his own which were far better than what was originally presented. Not only that, he offered to install everything himself rather than just email the files over, as I wasn’t too confident with the way this theme works. The theme itself is amazing, even without any custom mods. If you’re hesitating, just don’t ;). Thanks again!

This has to be the best PHPBB theme on theme forest. The support is top notch and the theme is simply put stunning. I bought this theme because I wanted to have a nice site with solid hosting. Idk who he uses for hosting, but all I have to say is that everything the author has is incredible. I will be buying from you in the future, and I hope that you continue to put out more themes. Oh, and thanks for the extra help in setting me up, I really appreciate it!

shadow257- Happy customer, Custom Integration

Fresh air finally. I was just sick of the official phpbb team not being able to come up with a modern theme. This is absolutely brilliant! It really is THE ONLY FULLY RESPONSIVE phpbb theme around built from scratch. I tried too many and wasted money and time until BBOOTS. Thanks for releasing this. Lots of love :-)
