Users may have no prior knowledge to Bootstrap and thus may not understand the basic concepts of this framework and what it adds.

What Is Bootstrap?

This video seeks to inform the users on various new features of Bootstrap 4, of which they may have no prior knowledge. The introduction of these features will help the user understand where these components will become useful in the forthcoming projects.

Broad Overview of New Features of Bootstrap 4

Users unfamiliar with Bootstrap won't know how to get started with the framework. This video will help lay the base for downloading and setting up Bootstrap ready for our projects.

Installing Bootstrap 4

In order to navigate throughout the social media platform, we require a main menu and main heading to display the corresponding section.

Building Our Header and Navigation

Bootstrap’s grid system can be quite complex. Users deep-diving into Bootstrap won't understand how it works and the required syntax. Using the grid system in the context of a project will help understand how to accurately use it.

Utilizing the Bootstrap Grid System

We need a way to display our data that is both modular and can be customized to multiple datasets.

Building the Foundation Blocks of Our Content

Our social platform has no place to input or view any social statuses and content. Adding a status submit input and various content blocks will solve this.

Social Feed Content

User messages don’t have a place within the current UI. We need a way to display various message data that the user may have.

Message View

We need to be able to view the profile page with appropriate emphasis on the individual user we are viewing. We need to create a customizable header for a profile page.

Building the Profile Page

We need to display both the login and registration forms/information on the same screen, but only show what the user needs to see.

Creating Tabbed Content

Many users can access the web page; we need a way to authenticate who they are.

Login Screen

We require a method to display mixed media types within the profile page. Using a masonry grid system will help display this content.

Completing the Profile Page

The user may not have an account already and thus will need a form to register.

Registration Screen

Some user inputs are quite clear on its requirements or what it will do if pressed and so on.

Alerts, Tooltips, and Popovers

Being new to Bootstrap, its component structure, its dependencies, and methods in which you build, users may face many issues that could troubleshoot if they knew how.


Having established a core understanding of Bootstrap, users will need a quick reference to some of the best practices to align their newly found skills.

Best Practices

We need to display the content for the music library in meaningful ways through content alignment and hierarchy.

Building the Layout

A lot of user interactivity needs to be covered in the header. We need a way to display this with minimal room and maximize the ease of use when accessing these controls.


The information required to be displayed with each song (song name, album, duration, and date) requires an efficient and compact way to be displayed to the end user.

Table List View

The user will be able to navigate and manipulate the state of the song whilst viewing the song’s progress.

Progress Bars and Song Navigation

Written content can be minified by a usual icon as a visual language to provide context and display actions to the end user. We must keep in mind screen readers and accessible devices.

Adding Icons

Users may require to customize and extend Bootstrap in various different ways.

Variable File

Sometimes, there is a need to extend Bootstrap with further capabilities beyond what is provided.

Third-Party Integrations

Without a high level of understanding, users are unable to Build Bootstrap UI without documentation or instructions.
