4.1 Final Words
Since you’ve completed the course, let me do a quick recap of what’s been covered.
First of all, Bootstrap 3 has a new design—everything is now flat. There’s also an optional, official theme you can choose and that will give you the old Bootstrap look and feel.
In the third lesson I talked about a major upgrade to the core of the framework: the mobile-first approach. This means that everything is optimised for mobile devices first and will scale up accordingly. Closely related to this is the improved grid system. It now uses different classes and it gives you a much better control on how the grid should behave in different screen sizes.
An exciting new feature is the Glyphicons Halflings icon font. The previous version of Bootstrap used images to display various icons, which isn’t so great. With the new font tho, you can create scalable images that will look sharp on any display.
Lessons 6 and 7 are about brand new components: the list group and panel. Apart from these, the new version did some improvements on the navbar and modal windows.
While adding new components, some older ones got removed. The most noticeable ones are the accordion and type head. These can easily be replaced tho with the panel component and the Twitter typehead.js respectively.
Version 3 also has a new customizer. Apart from the increase in variable count, a very nice feature is the automatic save of your configuration to an anonymous Gist—this will allow you to share or reuse a specific build anytime you want.
That was pretty much all the theory. In the second part of the course I showed you how to use Bootstrap to build a simple page.
That’s it for this course. I’m your teacher Adi Purdila and from all of us at Tuts+, thanks for watching.
