Powerful front-end framework upgraded: what’s new in Bootstrap 5

14 Jul 2021

We are happy to announce that new opportunities are coming in responsive front-end web development. The most popular front-end framework — Bootstrap — was released on May 5, 2021, in a new version with a bunch of powerful improvements. In this post, our development team is exploring what’s new in Bootstrap 5 and how it can help us create even more visually appealing and feature-rich mobile-first interfaces in less time.

Bootstrap: the best front-end toolkit

Bootstrap is a free and open-source CSS, JavaScript, and HTML framework for building responsive, mobile-first websites. It scales websites and apps from mobile phones to tablets to desktops using CSS media queries. The framework is full of powerful features and very well documented. It makes it faster and easier for front-end developers of all levels to build web pages that look great on any kind of device.

Indeed, Bootstrap contains everything for more efficient development — Sass variables, robust JS plugins, responsive grid system, and more. Among the features loved most by developers are ready-made, reusable, and highly customizable design templates, also known as components, to compose websites with. These may be dropdowns, accordions, progress bars, alerts, buttons, button groups, responsive embeds, cards, badges, breadcrumbs, carousels, and so many more.

The framework also offers its own library of SVG icons designed to work in the best ways together with Bootstrap components.
