    Bootstrap is best when you need to build websites fast and need responsiveness. It is best for quick prototyping or small projects.

      Bootstrap is responsive, mobile-first, prevailing, and front-end framework, which is developed along with CSS, JavaScript, and HTML. Bootstrap has many benefits from scratch for every web development project, and one such reason is the huge number of resources accessible for Bootstrap.

    The positive features were mentioned already, therefore I would like to point out that bootstrap has also some disadvantages. The CSS file is rather big and creates lots of overhead, which may lead to a reduced loading time. However, in most cases this won't be an issue or at least not a critical. You should just keep that in mind.

    I think the most important advantage is the frequent updates bootstrap releases more updates than any other framework. With Bootstrap updates are released consistently and frequently, you can rest assured that you are working with the latest tools.

    I use Bootstrap a lot. Also use the new SiteMush website builder now from the guys behind Softaculous. SiteMush is responsive too.

    But yes, Bootsrap is great. Version 4 is coming soon.

  • I think the major advantage Bootstrap has over other Frontend Frameworks is "mind share" - the majority, if not practically all site designers are aware of the concept of "Bootstrap".

    Therefore there are is a much larger foundation for plugins and easily adding features. You can

    For example, I actually just added Bootstrap DateTimePick on my personal site (www.KamesCG.com) just yesterday. I built my website using Drupal's Bootstrap Theme Foundation, so in less than an hour was able to find, understand and integrate the Bootstrap add-on in about 1-2 hours.

    In other words I think the greatest strength of Bootstrap is the level of attention and support it's received from around the world. Every framework now'a'days is responsive, uses a grid, has bonus feature, etc... What makes Bootstrap great is everything supporting it.

    It's realy nice and fast to work with it. It is used a lot for one page presentations. The screen is divided into 12 columns. You divide each row on parts of 12 (for example 3 columns, each 4 columns wide). Then you simply put content into the frame. Oh and responsiveness is already built in. I like it!!!

    Another advantage is its popularity. Nowadays so many CMS templates are based on it that you learn it once and can customize almost any theme.

    Bootstrap is a great tool to prototype a website, create wireframes etc. But, with years of using it, I have found myself building your own css is much faster.

    After a few sites made on Boostrap, I have started just using their grid css (imported with LESS/SASS) and build my own css on it.
