Bootstrap Download - which one is which?

Hi Coding Gang,

I have a question about Bootstrap and downloading it. There seems to be so many options and I am new to Bootstrap so wanted a little advice.

The question I have is I have downloaded the compiled CSS and JS (Bootstrap-4.1.1-dist.zip) files and they run fine with my Visual Code editor. However, I noted that at the top of the Bootstrap page (https://getbootstrap.com/docs/4.1/getting-started/download/) there is a download option (top right) which lets you download Bootstrap-4.1.1.zip (which is 2.1megs). What is that? I’ve downloaded it but have no idea what the files are?

I may be asking a stupid question, but hey, I am learning!

You don’t have to download Bootstrap if you don’t want to. They have a cdn that you can just link to in your project.
