Moodle and Bootstrap framework

Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework in the world for building responsive, mobile-first projects on the web, and now Moodle.

Definitely a post for the Moodle administrators today…

Moodle 3.2 included a new default theme “Boost” based on Bootstrap 4.

Boost will be the new default theme for Moodle 3.6 and is based on “Bootstrap 4”

When styling pages and components in Moodle – it is recommended to always re-use the components from Bootstrap instead of inventing new things that need custom styling. This means that themes extending Boost can re-style the native Bootstrap components and the changes will be reflected in the output across all Moodle pages.

If you are creating plugins for Moodle you need to know Bootstrap – please read through all of the docs on the Bootstrap website before proceeding (they are not long and are quite well written).

If you think Bootstrap is something you might need to
