[solved] Tips for coding local on my pc?

hey ya’ll
I’ve been coding in Brackets on the side. Basic html only. If I want use bootstrap or style w/ css do I have to download stuff like libraries?

I’d recommend just following the FCC map as pretty sure it explains it all to you.

I cant2 because my portfolio is going on 2 weeks now. I feel like It’s never gonna get done. I was learning so much untill they hit me with this ‘figure it out’ project’.

If you want to use Bootstrap locally you just have to link it in your html doc like you would for an external CSS file.

Try Googling around the above.

Here’s a vid about adding CSS to your HTML in Brackets:

Bootstrap has some pretty beginner friendly instructions on their site.

The Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) also has a very clear introduction to HTML and CSS. You should bookmark their site. It’s essential reading.


Thanks @gerhynes.
Can I just say, I find it unbelievable that there is so much free, like legit free, information out there to learn this stuff!?:thinking:
Take @kgwebsites for example

  • I’m sure there’s more to it but he learned allot from FCC and other free sources online and now he’s sitting on a 6fig salary. I mean, that’s just incredible!

I work offline a lot because I have very limited Internet access. You do need to download a few things:

A jQuery library: https://jquery.com/download/
Bootstrap: http://getbootstrap.com/docs/4.0/getting-started/download/

Neither of these are especially large files; they’re easy to download.

You can’t download Font Awesome fonts. You can choose fonts on your system or comment out your link to Font Awesome while you’re working locally.

If you want a comprehensive lesson on how to code with html and css then I highly recommend Shay Howe’s guide. It’s free!
