    Benefits of using bootstrap?

    I planned on using custom css with bootstrap, but is this a good idea. What are the benefits of using bootstrap, especially with Umbraco?

    Hi Saied,

    The main benefit of using bootstrap is speed of development. Another benefits:

    1. Responsiveness
    2. Consistency
    3. Customizable
    4. Support

    The framework allows for rapid, responsive development that is consistent and well supported by the development and design community.

    As the framework continues to develop, the reasons to use Bootstrap keep mounting. If you’ve overlooked this framework, it’s probably time to give it a try.

    It's just CSS framework.

    Thanks, Alex

    Do you think it will play nice with other css or would it clash? What I mean is that is it better to use bootstrap primarily?

    Bootstrap is one of the best framework, so I don't see problems with using it in Umbraco projects.

    Hi Saied,

    If you code your own custom CSS with bootstrap in mind then you should have no problems. There will be points where you are likely to want to override default bootstrap bits and pieces so just load Bootstrap and then your custom CSS files and they will take precedent over Bootstrap.

    I've used Bootstrap with all the Umbraco projects I've built so far and in turn also used custom CSS with no issues.

    Nik
