Is Bootstrap a CSS File?

So I was wondering is bootstrap its own language or is it just a .css file that has pre-made classes.

Note: I just started the lesson so I don’t know a lot about Bootstrap

Yes, it’s a CSS file. You can actually download it and inspect it yourself.

It also has a “component” element to it for things like

  • Transitions
  • Modal windows
  • Dropdwon
  • Scrollspy
  • carousel
  • etc…

so there’s also a small bootstrap.js which has a jQuery dependency.

Bootstrap is actually HTML, CSS, JS library that helps to build web apps easily.

Bootstrap library consists of CSS and JS. And it depends on JQuery ( famous JS library). You can make use of only CSS part of the library too.
