In Detail

Bootstrap is the most popular open source project on GitHub today. With a little bit of know-how, this massively popular CSS framework can leveraged for any type of complex web application or website. Bootstrap Site Blueprints Volume II will teach you to build these types of projects in an easy-to-understand fashion.

The key to any complex Bootstrap project is a strong development foundation for your project. The book will first teach you how to build a Bootstrap development environment using Harp.js, Node, and Less. In the next chapters, we'll build on this foundation by creating restaurant and mobile-first aggregator projects. Once you're warmed up, we'll move on to more complex projects such as a wiki, a new magazine, a dashboard, and finally a social networking website. Whether you are brand new to Bootstrap or a seasoned expert, this book will provide you with the skills you need to successfully create a number of popular web applications and websites.

Style and approach

This book takes a step-by-step approach to building each project, explained in a conversational and easy-to-follow style. We start by designing a development environment that will be used in all of the book's projects. The projects start from an easy-intermediate level and progress to advanced as the book goes on.

    Comments about oreilly Bootstrap Site Blueprints Volume II:

    After a quick read this is a book for begginers only. I'll read it for complete, now, and see if i'll ask for my money back.

    Anyway it's a good book, but overpriced (and i've bought at 50%..). I was searching for more intermediate/advanced content.

      Comments about oreilly Bootstrap Site Blueprints Volume II:

      I am the technical reviewer of this book.

      The book is well writen and easy to follow along. It is written for the beginner to intermediate front-end developer who is already using bootstrap but wants to take things to the next level. The book would also make a good reference to any level of front-developer with its real world site projects.


      The book will introduce developers to bootstrap development environment using Harp.js Node and Less.
      It is fun to read and will excite you as you follow along to find out the result in each chapter.
      The sample projects on this book have very good codes, organized and well explained. Every chapter has a finished file so that the reader could follow the code.

      Developers could use the sample practical projects(Restaurant website, Wiki, News Magazine, Dashboard and Social Network) in this book as base of their next projects so they don't need to do it from scratch.
