Why is the Grid System so Important?

The Bootstrap Grid System is used for layout, specifically Responsive Layouts. Understanding how it works is vital to understanding Bootstrap. The Grid is made up of groupings of Rows & Columns inside 1 or more Containers.

 

In the next class, I’ll give a quick overview of how the grid system works

SASS or SCSS introduction

 

In this section, I’m going to explain what SASS is and what will be covered in this section

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

What is SASS or SCSS?

SCSS is basically just an awesome, more dynamic CSS
Sass stands for Syntactically Awesome Stylesheet

Sass is an extension to CSS

 

Sass is a CSS pre-processor, it basically means that it takes the scss file and converts it to a normal css file.

Sass is completely compatible with all versions of CSS

Sass reduces repetition of CSS and therefore saves time

Sass is free to download and use

 

Why Use Sass?

 

Stylesheets are getting larger, more complex, and harder to maintain. This is where a CSS pre-processor can help.

 

Sass lets you use features that do not exist in CSS, like variables, nested rules, mixins, imports, inheritance, built-in functions, and other stuff

 

Why Use this with Bootstrap?

If you want to change the colour scheme in Bootstrap, for instance changing the primary and secondary colors, SASS will be the way to do this easily.

Before starting any project online, you first need to do a template for it in HTML and CSS.

 

This part can be really painful, especially if you guys have to make it responsive on every device.

 

Bootstrap 4 makes life easier and more powerful than ever before!

 

In this course, I will teach you guys how to use bootstrap and how you can use it to your advantage.

 

I will show you how to make a basic website in HTML, and how the theming works in Bootstrap.

 

I will also load more and more content in this course as time goes by.
