What’s included

Within the download you’ll find the following directories and files, logically grouping common assets and providing both compiled and minified variations. You’ll see something like this:

bootstrap/

    │   ├── bootstrap-grid.css.map
    │   ├── bootstrap-grid.min.css

    │   ├── bootstrap-reboot.css

    │   ├── bootstrap-reboot.min.css
    │   ├── bootstrap-reboot.min.css.map
    │   ├── bootstrap.css

        ├── bootstrap.js
        ├── bootstrap.js.map

We provide compiled CSS and JS (bootstrap.*), as well as compiled and minified CSS and JS (bootstrap.min.*). source maps (bootstrap.*.map) are available for use with certain browsers’ developer tools. Bundled JS files (bootstrap.bundle.js and minified bootstrap.bundle.min.js) include Popper, but not jQuery.

Bugs and feature requests

Have a bug or a feature request? Please first read the issue guidelines and search for existing and closed issues. If your problem or idea is not addressed yet, please open a new issue.

Documentation

Bootstrap’s documentation, included in this repo in the root directory, is built with Jekyll and publicly hosted on GitHub Pages at https://getbootstrap.com/. The docs may also be run locally.

Documentation search is powered by Algolia’s DocSearch. Working on our search? Be sure to set debug: true in site/docs/4.3/assets/js/src/search.js file.

Running documentation locally

  1. Run through the tooling setup to install Jekyll (the site builder) and other Ruby dependencies with bundle install.
  2. Run npm install to install Node.js dependencies.
  3. Run npm start to compile CSS and JavaScript files, generate our docs, and watch for changes.
  4. Open http://localhost:9001 in your browser, and voilà.

Learn more about using Jekyll by reading its documentation.

Documentation for previous releases
