Book Description

Twitter Bootstrap is by far the most popular of all front-end frameworks. It has earned its position by providing expertly-crafted, community-tested solutions for some of the thorniest problems of contemporary web design, equipping developers to accomplish difficult tasks with ease and normal tasks with greater speed.

Twitter Bootstrap Web Development How-To walks you step-by-step from Bootstrap basics to the creation of a fully-responsive, JavaScript-enhanced, multi-page website. After this quick and dirty Bootstrap bootcamp, you’ll not only be building serious sites, but you’ll be equipped to dive into the rest of what Twitter Bootstrap has to offer. The content of the book is up to date with version 2.1 of Twitter Bootstrap.

Bringing you from zero to pro in record time, this book will start you off with Twitter Bootstrap’s excellent responsive grid system. From the basics, you’ll move on to more complex layouts with media grids and tables. You’ll learn to control Bootstrap’s navbar, adding drop-down menu items and configuring it to adapt beautifully to small screens. You’ll utilize Bootstrap’s jQuery plugins to add dynamic tabs and a beautiful homepage slideshow. You’ll also walk through the steps of uploading your files, testing your site across desktop and mobile browsers, and optimizing your site files for improved performance before final launch.
