I’ve always believed in the power of simplicity.
To me, concise writing is better, the best dishes have the fewest ingredients, and the minimalist lifestyle wins every time.
That’s why a website framework like Bootstrap feels so right. I gave it a trial run this week as part of expanding my front-end skill-set.
My verdict? Wow.
Using Bootstrap, I could put together a one-page website with quite striking ease. It was literally as simple as grabbing code from the main Bootstrap site and tinkering with it to fit my exact needs.
Here’s a sample homepage:
Bootstrap is highly responsive thanks to its clever grid system. I put some time and effort into understanding how the grid works, as this seemed to be the key to effcient website building with Bootstrap in future. At some point I’ll figure out how to jazz up this Jekyll site with a touch of Bootstrap magic.
