Here’s how to quickly get started with the Bootstrap CDN and a template starter page.

Bootstrap CDN

When you just need to include Bootstrap's compiled CSS and JS, use the Bootstrap CDN, free from the Max CDN folks.

    <!-- Latest compiled and minified CSS -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="">

    <!-- jQuery library -->
    <script src=""> </script>

    <!-- Latest compiled JavaScript -->
    <script src=""> </script>

Create First Web Page With Bootstrap

Important globals

Bootstrap employs a handful of important global styles and settings that you’ll need to be aware of when using it, all of which are almost exclusively geared towards the normalization of cross browser styles. Let’s dive in.

HTML5 doctype

Bootstrap requires the use of the HTML5 doctype. Without it, you’ll see some funky incomplete styling, but including it shouldn’t cause any considerable hiccups.

    <!DOCTYPE html>  
    <html lang="en">

Responsive meta tag

Bootstrap is developed mobile first, a strategy in which we optimize code for mobile devices first and then scale up components as necessary using CSS media queries. To ensure proper rendering and touch zooming for all devices, add the responsive viewport meta tag to your <head>.

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">

Starter template

Be sure to have your pages set up with the latest design and development standards. That means using an HTML5 doctype and including a viewport meta tag for proper responsive behaviors. Put it all together and your pages should look like this:

        <!DOCTYPE html>  
        <html lang="en">    
                <!-- Required meta tags -->      
                <meta charset="utf-8">      <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">        

                <!-- Bootstrap CSS -->      
                <link rel="stylesheet" href="" integrity="sha384-rwoIResjU2yc3z8GV/NPeZWAv56rSmLldC3R/AZzGRnGxQQKnKkoFVhFQhNUwEyJ" crossorigin="anonymous">    
                <h1>Hello, world!</h1>        

                <!-- jQuery first, then Tether, then Bootstrap JS. -->
                <script src="" integrity="sha384-A7FZj7v+d/sdmMqp/nOQwliLvUsJfDHW+k9Omg/a/EheAdgtzNs3hpfag6Ed950n" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>      
                <script src="" integrity="sha384-DztdAPBWPRXSA/3eYEEUWrWCy7G5KFbe8fFjk5JAIxUYHKkDx6Qin1DkWx51bBrb" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>      
                <script src="" integrity="sha384-vBWWzlZJ8ea9aCX4pEW3rVHjgjt7zpkNpZk+02D9phzyeVkE+jo0ieGizqPLForn" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>    



Example: container

Use .container for a responsive fixed width container.

        <div class="container">
                <div class="row">

Example: Fluid container

Turn any fixed-width grid layout into a full-width layout by changing your outermost .container to .container-fluid.

        <div class="container-fluid">
                <div class="row">


For more straightforward sizing in CSS, we switch the global box-sizing value from content-box to border-box. This ensures padding does not affect the final computed width of an element, but it can cause problems with some third party software like Google Maps and Google Custom Search Engine.

        .selector-for-some-widget {    
                -webkit-box-sizing: content-box;
                -moz-box-sizing: content-box;
                box-sizing: content-box;
