Bootstrap is an HTML5 toolkit from Twitter to help kickstart webapps and web content sites. It includes a base Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) and HTML for forms, buttons, typography, tables, grids, navigation and much more.
This helps you create a standards compliant, responsive, user-friendly, professionally built HTML5 website, right out of the box.
Bootstrap is under the Apache 2.0 license, provide a great deal of creative freedom. So long as you give the good folks at Twitter due credit for their work, you’re free to take, tweak, and customize everything to your heart’s content.
If you just want to use Bootstrap for your project you can simply include the minified libraries from a content delivery network
In the example, lines 8 & 9 include minified bootstrap using the netdna content delivery network (CDN), so where ever people view your site from around the world it should not slow down due to loading these styleheets.
You can now use elements from Bootstrap in your project and view the results anywhere you have an internet connection. To learn what these are, take a look at Get Bootstrap or Google for some of the very many examples out there.
