In Detail

Bootstrap is the most popular open source project on GitHub today. With a little bit of know-how, this massively popular CSS framework can leveraged for any type of complex web application or website. Bootstrap Site Blueprints Volume II will teach you to build these types of projects in an easy-to-understand fashion.

The key to any complex Bootstrap project is a strong development foundation for your project. The book will first teach you how to build a Bootstrap development environment using Harp.js, Node, and Less. In the next chapters, we'll build on this foundation by creating restaurant and mobile-first aggregator projects. Once you're warmed up, we'll move on to more complex projects such as a wiki, a new magazine, a dashboard, and finally a social networking website. Whether you are brand new to Bootstrap or a seasoned expert, this book will provide you with the skills you need to successfully create a number of popular web applications and websites.

Style and approach

This book takes a step-by-step approach to building each project, explained in a conversational and easy-to-follow style. We start by designing a development environment that will be used in all of the book's projects. The projects start from an easy-intermediate level and progress to advanced as the book goes on.
