Free Snippets for Twitter Bootstrap, Examples of Websites
Bootstrap is created for designers and developers with any level of knowledge and experience, for bearded oldsters and beginners. You can use it both entirely, for full-fledged design, and partially – in your projects.
Bootstrap uses the latest developments in the sphere of CSS and HTML, therefore you should pay attention to the support of the old browser. Where the good old CSS fails, LESS comes. Variables, nested functions, operators in LESS make CSS development quick and more efficient.
Main features of Twitter Bootstrap
- Grids – pre-defined sizes of columns, which can be used immediately, e.g. column width 90px relates to .span2 class, which can be used in the CSS description of document
- Templates – Fixed or flexible document template
- Typography – Description of fonts, definition of certain classes for fonts, such as code, quotes, etc.
- Medias – Offers certain management of images and Videos
- Tables – Design tools for tables, up to adding functionality to sorting
- Forms – Design classes for not only forms, but also certain related events
- Navigation – Design classes for Tabs, Inserts, Paging, Menus and Toolbar
- Alerts – Design of dialog boxes, Tips and Pop-ups
Even without modifications, the created layout is suitable for many things
- It can be used for administrative panels
- It can be used for web applications without claims in respect of design, for which all thingies are not important
- You can quickly sketch a prototype of your page in the course of development, and use the needed interface later
Information on CSS Framework for the beginners
CSS Framework was initially made for resets for IE, which means that some settings of Internet Explorer styles were reset from NORMAL. For example, border was removed from pictures.
Then, people started defaulting for purposes of good look. This means headers, column width, stripes and margins. Defaulting was used to such extent, that, a style being connected, each awful page became improved. Then, bearded monkeys moved to forms. Various inputs, beautiful elements let graphics be easily connected, but thank God, CSS3 degenerated, and graphics were essentially rejected.
Then, someone in the crowd shouted: “Down with grids!” And span16 was invented. Others wanted span24. Rubber was rejected, and finally, with the advent of HTML5 with one wave of hand, it became possible to make a site of unprecedented precision with literally a wave of heel above the keyboard.
The freshest historical tendency is represented exactly by Bootstrap, CSS3 started changing substantially for inquiring minds, and LESS came up.
