Bootstrap uses a mobile-first approach, so the framework is best used when developing for smaller screens first, and then adapting the layout to grow and change with the screen size. This method of development is often preferred to desktop-first as now over 50% of all internet traffic is now via a smartphone or tablet.
Using a prebuilt boilerplate can be helpful for simple website designs but most developers only use a small percentage of the total features. This is where Sass comes in; styles and components can be excluded from the stylesheet so code that’s never used isn’t included in the websites code.
To achieve bespoke designs, a lot of editing needs to be done to Bootstrap and this process can sometimes take longer than if you started from scratch. That’s why at Kolodo we start with a blank page and write all our code by hand.
