For our website we used Bootstrap for the framework of our website. Boostrap gives you a template to work with and a main theme which we used called “Jumbotron”. Jumbotron was chosen because of the elegant but simple nature of the theme and creates an appealing user experience.
Bootstrap defines itself as “Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web.” Another important feature of bootstrap was that it easily allows users to view the website upon their mobile device or Ipad etc which in this day and age is of mass importance. It is also very easily to download and get started with, opening brackets and using the three components of HTML, CSS and JS to edit and design different aspects of the website.
As well as this the Bootstrap website has a very helpful guide under “getting started” to help give advice on on certain aspects. As well as this other websites such as W3 Schools.com have a massive amount of tutorials to help design or code the website.
