You Should be Using Bootstrap

In Insider No Comments

Most users are browsing your website using a mobile device. Does your website look good? If not, then you should consider using Bootstrap for your CSS.

What is Bootstrap?

Bootstrap is a set of CSS and jQuery that helps you create responsive web pages. Responsive means that the styles of your website change depending on the device the user is browsing it from. This keeps your website looking good regardless of how the user browses to it.
 

How Does it Work?

Bootstrap's CSS changes on the fly based on the size of the browser. It uses what are called Media Queries which are a part of the CSS standard. A media query reads meta-data from the browser, then changes the styles to something that works based on the height, width or other browser information. For example, on a large desktop browser, a user might see columns of data across the page. However, on a mobile browsers, the user would see that same data, but going down the page. There is no additional coding your programmer has to do, this is all done just by using the appropriate Bootstrap styles.
 

How To Get Started

To ensure your website is responsive, you need a programmer or web designer that is familiar with Bootstrap. That person will make appropriate changes to each individual page to ensure it looks good on all types of different browsers. Yes, this will take time, but the end result is well worth the time and expense.
