A Better Life with Steem: Learning Bootstrap for Responsive Website developmentsteemCreated with Sketch.

in #betterlife4 years ago

I've been learning bootstrap, a popular framework for web designing and development alongside the Django framework. I am focusing more time on bootstrap than in Django because first I want to be proficient with designing the website then only go deep into its backend development. Here's the code if you want to try out what I've done. First you need to create a folder and named it anything you like (let's say X). Inside that folder, you need to create another two folder called img and css. Inside folder X create a notepad file and name it as index.html and inside css folder, open another notepad file and name it as style.css. The image link is at the bottom of the post. Download it and save it to img folder as 1.jpg. You can use any editor you like. I am using Sublime text for the same as it is very lightweight.

            <div class="collapse navbar-collapse text-center" id="collapse_navbar">
                <ul class="navbar-nav ml-auto">
                    <li class="nav-item"><a href="#" class="nav-link text-white">Services</a></li>

Inside the 'style.css' folder, you can copy this code:

    background-image: linear-gradient(rgba(255,255,255,0.4), rgba(255,255,255,0.4)), url('../img/1.jpg');
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-size: 100% 100%;
    background-attachment: fixed;
    width: 100%;
    height: 780px;


    padding-top: 220px;
    box-sizing: border-box;

.headerset h2{
    font-size: 42px;


.headerset h1{
    font-size: 62px;
    font-weight: bolder;

Save the code and run it. This is the output of what I've done so far.


Checking the responsiveness of the site.


Checking if navbar collapse works nicely or not.

I thought it was more difficult, but you showed a simple tutorial, thanks!

In general, this topic is quite difficult if you are the owner of a company and are trying to do something, but you do not have specialized knowledge. And in the current situation, it is quite difficult to hire an entire development team for a full day. Therefore, such articles should be more understandable for beginners. Or you can read the lifterlms review and use such tools to make it easier.
