Bootstrap Or CSS Grid/Flexbox

Hi Campers,

I’m still very much a novice but have spent considerable hours learning the basics with freecodecamp & codecademy.

Do I have to use Bootstrap over Flexbox/CSS Grid to complete my portfolio challenge. I understand the CSS Grid is intuitive, easier and the way to go but there appears minimal reference to Flexbox in the challenges.

I’d rather learn what I’m more likely to use in my progression as a frontend developer.

Bootstrap is your way

I agree, is it possible to use CSS Flexbox instead

Use anything you want, the example that uses Bootstrap is just an example.

You don’t have to use a CSS framwork at all!

You can write the CSS completely from scratch, and it’s actually a really good thing to learn.

Hi All,
Sorry for not responding to your replies.
I have got into the wrong groove of jumping from project to project rather than being a completer finisher. Confused, I ended up using page builders. Can build great sites but lack knowledge of what’s under the bonnet, so it’s back to basics for me.
Thanks for the feedback.
