Totally open source and free to use, Bootstrap has become one of the most popular front-end frameworks for desktop and mobile development. With a mobile-first approach, the framework essentially forces designers to create sites for small screens and then scale designs up from there.

Tips for Choosing a Bootstrap Plugin
There are many things that can be confusing for an absolute beginner when it comes to choosing the right Bootstrap plugin. Here are a few tips that can help you make the right decision.
Make sure that the plugin and your website are using the same version of Bootstrap. Many things change with each new version of Bootstrap. This means that some plugins and skins will not work with your website as expected if they are based on a different version.
One more thing that will help you quickly set things up in an existing project is to choose a plugin that does not apply excessive styling of its own over Bootstrap. This is particularly true if your own website uses minimal styling over what Bootstrap already provides.
The Bootstrap 4 plugins featured here just scratch the surface of options available at CodeCanyon, so if none of them appeal, there are plenty of other great options there to hold your interest.
