8 Essential Bootstrap Components for your Web App
Let’s talk about bootstrap components. Bootstrap is an open-sourced framework for web apps development that has gained great popularity since 2011 when it was released for the first time. Since that time Bootstrap has expanded, evolved, become more and more popular, and gained the support of a large community of developers. In Flatlogic we create web & mobile application templates built with React, Vue, Angular and React Native to help you develop web & mobile apps faster. Go and check out yourself!See our themes! The latest Bootstrap version is 4.5, and we expect to see version 5 soon. As Bootstrap improves, it can offer more and more components with comprehensive documentation. You can find alerts, forms, input groups, dropdowns, and much more on the official web site. The source: https://getbootstrap.com/docs/4.5/components/alerts/ These components are free to use, go with Bootstrap toolkit, fully responsive, some of them come with JS files, and they are completely reusable without any necessity in coding. However, if base bootstrap components don’t fit your design or your app requires specific components that base toolkit doesn’t contain, you face the need to modify base components or to develop them from scratch. It’s can be hard and time-consuming, so we are here to help. In that article, we consider the most essential bootstrap components that were customized by other developers for different purposes. We show not the complete list of customized components because it would have taken a long series of articles to describe them all since the same components vary in different templates, UI toolkits, and starter kits.

If you want to allow users to navigate through your app you probably need the navbar. The navigation bar should be clear, simple, and legible. It’s another very significant UI element.

In general, every time user is supposed to provide any type of information here goes forms and input groups. Jumbotron. A component for calling extra attention to a certain piece of information.
