Bootstrap 5 is here! But what has changed?

  • jQuery was removed
  • Switch to Vanilla JavaScript
  • Drop Internet Explorer 10 and 11 support
  • Improved grid system
  • Improved documentation
  • Improved modularity
  • Improved forms
  • New responsive font
  • New utilities & helpers
  • Easier customization & theming
  • Lighter package
  • New API available

One of the frustrating experiences of being a developer is reinventing the base HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for each project. While some prefer to write their own code, it still makes sense to just use an existing framework like Bootstrap.

With all the new updates coming in Bootstrap 5, it’s safe to say that the Bootstrap team is making huge steps to make the framework lightweight, simple, useful and faster for the developer’s benefit.

If you use Bootstrap in your projects, then you will probably love Startup app – Bootstrap Builder. It is a great development tool with lots of ready-made designed and coded templates and themes for faster deployment of your projects.
