Twitter Bootstrap is billed as “the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web”. It is used by nearly 16% of the top million websites in the world – a number far more impressive than it may sound to those not familiar with the fragmented nature of the web. Out of the box, Bootstrap provides a great starting point in terms of responsiveness and a solid foundation of baseline styling, on which you can expand. Other benefits include robust, easy-to-use theming, a wide variety of built-in and third party controls, and a massive community. Training materials, examples, and extensions are abundant.
