Overview of what Bootstrap 4 is in website design

Hey buddies, it is time for project for this kind of next chunk. Okay. Is devoted to understanding Bootstrap. So this video is going to explain what Bootstrap is. Hopefully, and so bootstrap is think of it, the big word is framework. Okay. And I'll tell you a story. So imagine because we just spent a lot of time building that last website, right? Our portfolio site, but there were some lots of stuff that you did repetitive lee we start buttons, the navigation, remember that? Okay. There was lots of like display block, turning off the media queries, getting media queries going, loading, javascript. Now, if you built another site, you're probably gonna run into all of those things. Again, if you build 100 sights or 1000 sites, okay, you're gonna run into pretty much all of them. They're all gonna have buttons, they're all going to have images, they're all going to need to do a very similar thing instead of starting every single time from like your CSS reset, where everything is just blan...

k. Okay? And adding everything to it, you can get good at it, but you get boarded it or at least you get struggled with a repetitive nous of stuff that already just needs to get done for every style, every site. So that's where bootstrap came in. So clever people at twitter decided, all right, we're making all of these sites. Okay. And what we'll do is we'll add some consistency across the mall, but also make it really easy to use and that kind of broke it into three parts is the structure, there's the components and then there's the styles. So basically the structure says, alright, we're always going to have media queries, we're always going to have them kind of break down in different ways on mobile tablet and desktop and we'll make that into like CSS sheet that already exists and you just start with that one, There's mobile devices, there's tablets all looked after and they're all in there. So that's kind of like core structure. And then they went, all right, let's have some components that are reusable. So we built the little j query dropdown menu from mobile. Okay. They went, let's just make that. So all you have to do is the designer Okay, is put a snippet of html in your in your website and that never will work. It will be dropped down. It will be good on all browsers. Okay. You won't have to do all the media queries where we block it and display none. And all that sort of fun stuff. They just say we'll do that. Okay. And that's a component. Also like an image slider. If you want to add an image slider, you can definitely do it in J query. It's it's not crazy hard. But there was a lot of fiddling. Right? What we had to do, what they've done is say, here you go, ready to go add carousel. Okay, The word carousel to your html and we'll do all the CSS and all the day career ready to go. That's why it's a framework. Okay. It's just like something to kind of get yourself going. You can change the styling okay. But they'll do all the hard, heavy lifting in terms of html. CSS and javascript. Um so grid components. Okay, Like navigation and image sliders and the next one is styling okay? We've done it loads where we're like, all right, I want the links to not look so terrible blue and underlined. So they've already done those styling for you. Okay. And you can override it. Okay, easily. Okay. But they've done lots of the styling so that things don't look suck to start with. Okay. They look like they're pretty, pretty good. Okay. Bootstrap has a very specific look to it. Okay. So I can go to our website and go, Bootstrap, okay. Because the designer or developer has been really lazy and just used all the styles from it. And the good thing about it is that you can be lazy and you can have very little design knowledge and have a good looking site, but they do have a certain look to them, but you can override those. Okay, so Bootstrap helps us with the kind of grid or the structure of the website, then they help us with components and then they do all the styling. All of it can be overridden. Okay, But it's there to go and it's a good place to start for a website. Alright. Your next question might be, why didn't we do this at the beginning and skip all the other stuff. A couple of reasons. One is that to actually use Bootstrap? You need you need foundation in html and CSS and under. How understand that Before you can actually do any changes to Bootstrap, you can't just jump into Bootstrap really and start trying to mess with it. It's a it's for people that already have that skills to go fast, so you need to have those skills to be able to use bootstrap. And the other question might be is do we have to use bootstrap? And the question is uh the answer is no Bootstrap is just an option for people that you might get to this point. Actually, I like all that stuff and I'm going to practice that stuff for a lot longer before I start using Bootstrap. Okay. And I can come back to this part of dance course and the reason I guess I use it sometimes and sometimes not. Um the reason the times I wouldn't use it is I'm looking at like one of my designs and I'm really kind of, I like to customize that quite a lot. I want to change everything. So I look at it, I'm like actually I'm just gonna end up changing every single thing that I put in via Bootstrap, so it's not it's not going to save me any time. Okay, so I'm just gonna ignore bootstrap in this particular web build, but then I might look at a site and go actually I need to do this quickly. It needs to look pretty good. So I'm gonna rely on Bootstrap just to kind of build the front end real quick. Might be a prototype, okay. Or it might be something where I'm doing it for love, okay. Or cuddles where I'm not getting any time or any money to spend on it. I just needed done quickly and it to look pretty good. That's where bootstrap might come in. So do you have to use it? No. Why didn't we start it already? It's because we need that foundation kind of knowledge in html and CSS before we start using Bootstrap. Now, another good reason to use bootstrap is or at least learn bootstrap is that there are going to be lots of other things that use it. Okay, So we're building our own custom site and using Bootstrap, but let's say you start using Wordpress later on or Shopify drew pull or do mula or trying to think of other CMS, is they they will kind of do all the heavy lifting in terms of website creation that will take that away from you. But what they'll do is they'll say I'm using a bootstrap theme. Okay. And the cool thing about that is that because you understand Bootstrap, you can go through and adjust Wordpress and move it around and change it and kind of make it your own. Okay, so there are lots of other things. Okay, like CMS. Is that use Bootstrap we're using in this case or the rest of this course to style our own sites, but it's used to style lots of other CMS sites as well. Another thing to mention is that Bootstrap is just an option. Okay, there are alternatives of Bootstrap, something like foundation would be a good alternative for it. Um, Bootstrap would be, in my opinion, the most common option. Um So yeah, there are other games on the block that's not the saying is it? There's other things you can competitors to Bootstrap, so it's not the only one. So what else are we going to do? So what we'll do is remember Bootstrap is kind of three big parts. Okay, it is the grid system which is the structure. Okay, there's components which is things like the nav and the image sliders and footers does those for you and then there's the slot, the styling part of it. Okay, so those three and what we're going to do in the next kind of few videos, we'll install Bootstrap to get started with, then I'll do a brief overview of those three K three aspects before we dive into building a full website because I feel like I try to explain it all in this first video, but I know it's it's a little hard and abstract sometimes, so let's cover those three with like there'll be three overview videos of those three components. Let's jump in, start doing them now, and I'll see you in the next video.
