About Bootstrap 3

What is it?

Bootstrap is a free collection of tools for creating websites and web applications. It contains HTML and CSS-based design templates for typography, forms, buttons, navigation and other interface components, as well as optional JavaScript extensions.


Bootstrap has relatively incomplete support for HTML5 and CSS 3, but it is compatible with all major browsers. Basic information of compatibility of websites or applications is available for all devices and browsers. There is a concept of partial compatibility that makes the basic information of a website available for all devices and browsers.

For example, the properties introduced in CSS3 for rounded corners, gradients and shadows are used by Bootstrap despite lack of support by older web browsers. These extend the functionality of the toolkit, but are not required for its use.

Since version 2.0 it also supports responsive design. This means the layout of web pages adjusts dynamically, taking into account the characteristics of the device used (PC, tablet, mobile phone).
Bootstrap is open source and available on GitHub. Developers are encouraged to participate in the project and make their own contributions to the platform.

We, the Bootstrap 3 WordPress theme framework developers, try to contribute to the original project.

Bootstrap is modular and consists essentially of a series of LESS stylesheets that implement the various components of the toolkit. A stylesheet called bootstrap.less includes the components stylesheets. Developers can adapt the Bootstrap file itself, selecting the components they wish to use in their project.

Adjustments are possible to a limited extent through a central configuration stylesheet. More profound changes are possible by the LESS declarations.

The use of LESS stylesheet language allows the use of variables, functions and operators, nested selectors, as well as so-called mixins.

Since version 2.0, the configuration of Bootstrap also has a special “Customize” option in the documentation. Moreover, the developer chooses on a form the desired components and adjusts, if necessary, the values of various options to their needs. The subsequently generated package already includes the pre-built CSS style sheet.

Based on that the Bootstrap 3 WordPress theme framework works the same way and has the same functions.
