I really don't like bootstrap. I used to use it, but for me it's more headache than it needs to be, plus I'd rather code my own javascript to make things happen. Think I'm going to try Bulma

For my next personal project. Seems a bit less bloated to use. Just my personal take.


Thanks for the link, googling Bulma turn up... the brilliant scientist and the second daughter of Capsule Corporation's founder Dr. Brief and his wife Panchy, the younger sister of Tights, and Goku's first friend.

I was a little confused. 😆

I feel like anything like that is cheating. But I have to follow Colt Steele. I guess I can do what I want after studying.


Yeah if you're doing a course, keep at it for sure. I'm doing a Java one, which lacks any website stuff, but in the last I've done several html/css/bootstrap portions of different Udemy courses, so I at least have a good handle on those things. I agree using something like bootstrap feels like cheating, I did too. I think it all depends on what your end goal is.

I've had people over on devRant tell me to avoid Bootstrap as much as possible. Curious, is it a beginners thing?!

Hmm. There are a lot of businesses that use bootstrap, so it is definitely useful to learn, especially if you wind up working somewhere that is using it. Most courses don't get heavy into css etc because A: unless you decide to be a designer, you're probably not going to be dealing with plain old css as much (or want to, lol).

That's good. I guess taking different perspectives will help me figure out some middle ground. Cheers.

Complexity is the property of the system. The more (unique) parts it has, the more connections there are between parts, the more complex is the system
