How to install Bootstrap 4 on a website using Visual Studio Code

Hi there in this video. We are going to install Bootstrap four on our website using V. S. Code. It's super simple, let's jump in now and work it out. Alright, first up, let's create our own new local falter. Okay, so we're done with project three. Thank you very much. Now it's Bootstrap time. So we're gonna go to file, we're going to go to open and we are going to on our desktop create a new local folder. In this case we're gonna call it project for Unsurprisingly. Alright, let's click open and let's close down the welcome tab that opens up and let's just tidy this up. Let's get rid of outline and let's create our first file. So we're gonna create index. We have been going file new. That works fine. I'm going to show you just right clicking in this area down here, you can go to a new file and this is a different way. I like it nicer. Okay, so I created my index. It's open here. I'm gonna twirl that open. I don't like the open editors thing open just while we're learning at least. Okay.

Html file needs all the basic stuff. Okay, so we need escalation. Mark, hit return. That'll give us most of the doc type and all the bits we need. Now I'm going to introduce you to the Bootstrap website. Okay. It is called Get Bootstrap dot com. This is the official kind of page and documentation and also the goodness that are will help us with Bootstrap now we're using Bootstrap four at the moment. If you're watching this in the distance, way, future and it's up to Bootstrap five, it's gonna look completely different, but the essentials will probably be the same. So what we want is we want to get started, you can download it locally on your machine, we're going to do it a different way. Okay? We're gonna go to get started and basically it's going to say, well you need to well, kind of two groups of things. You need the CSS and the javascript. If you just plan on using, say the framework, like the grid when we talked about the grid of the structure, All you need is the CSS If you don't plan on doing any of the cool dropdown menus or image sliders, you don't need this stuff down the bottom. But let's install it altogether, just in case we're going to use this later on. If you don't plan to use it, don't put it in because it's just going to add to the low time. So we're gonna copy the CSS and it tells you where to put it, put it in a link in your head, but it's they've given you the code ready to go. So I've copied it and here it says put it at the head. Ok, and there it is there. So we've done this a few times with different CSS is okay, we've done it with google fonts, what else we do it with? That's all I can remember and the only thing to remember is that if you create your own style sheet, which we'll do in a second, it needs to be above that. So this is at the top. Bootstrap always at the top and your style just underneath. Okay, we don't have that just yet. Next chunk is this javascript here, there's three parts to it. Let's copy all three and let's paste it in. And if you read through the documentation, it says, well there's a good like starter template example, you can just copy all this out and paste it into this code as well. Okay. But it says make sure it goes at the bottom. Okay. Like javascript like we discussed earlier on, so it was going to paste it down the bottom just before the closing of the body. Okay, I'm gonna put one here. There we go. And in here I'm going to put in some comments. Okay. Remember command ford slash or control forward slash on a pc and just add some notes and just to double check the CSS is actually working. Let's preview the page. Remember that stopped working down there. So we're just going to right click it and say open with live server. It's going to open on the right screen today. Alright. Nothing there. So it's not working, but it's let's see the way to check if it's working is just to throw in an H one. Okay. And type in Hello world again And just check, you know, the CSS is working because it looks nothing like our regular old H1. There are old H1 looks like I'm gonna comment that out. That stuff so with it in it looks like that pretty now. The one thing that V. S code doesn't put in and our kind of people use the exclamation mark to put in most of the information for the page. There's one thing that it suggests here that's not part of that initial V. S. Code. Remember there's different, we looked at the different code editors and how they implemented all this kind of head tag This is one here. Okay. The shrink to fit. No is missing. So we've got all that but we need a comma and shrink to fit. No what does it do? Put it in first, it goes here before the closing of the quotation marks and I think it disables something is a weird sitting in Safari that messes with Bootstrap so you can turn it off and it just means you're gonna have consistency across different browsers. Cool. And that, is it installed now the crazy thing is if we look at our desktop, is that a project for we have just the index page. So remember these are being loaded as a from a content delivery network. Okay, so Bootstrap are controlling this, they have it on their server. Same with all of these. Okay and they're just getting loaded as the page loads. You can download them from. Get bootstrap. The only trouble is that the browser will have to load them from your site when when probably the person visiting your site has probably already downloaded the CDN version from another website so it won't have to again and it will make the page load nice and fast. So what are these ones? Okay. J query, We've talked about that. Okay, so this is loading it from jake hurry, we've done this before this, it's a slightly different uh slim minimized version. Okay, same thing this one here, papa okay. Is it's a really useful bit of javascript that gets used for positioning things like tool tips and pop up models and all that sort of like notifications that appear inside websites. Okay. And this one here is bootstraps specific. Javascript is a bit getting used and you my friends have installed Bootstrap now we're going to carry on with the course a couple of notes. Is that make sure the CSS for bootstrap is a above yours. So you put in now link CSS so you put yours underneath and if you start making we don't have that yet. So I'm gonna get rid of it. You're gonna make your own javascript. Okay? You need to make sure that the script tag ends up underneath, there's okay. So this goes in first, then yours afterwards, otherwise yours can start conflicting with this and our big mess. Alright, let's save it and move on to the next video.
