Bootstrap Tutorial for Django Developers

Adding Bootstrap 4 for CSS Styling

For quickly building a beautifully styled web page, we can use Bootstrap (v4). Bootstrap requires jQuery and Popper.js so we must first include them in the <head> of our template:

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/popper.js/1.14.3/umd/popper.min.js"></script>

Next, include the JavaScript file for Bootstrap:

<script src="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.2/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

Finally, you need to include the CSS file for Bootstrap, also in the <head> section:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.2/css/bootstrap.min.css">

Now you are ready to use Bootstrap classes and utilities for styling your application.

Create a index.html template that extends the base.html:

{ % extends "base.html" % }

{ % block content % }

<div class="container-fluid">
    <div class="row">
        <div class="col-sm-12">
        <h1>Django Bootstrap 4 Tutorial</h1>
          <p>Welcome to our Django Home Page</p>
        </div>
    </div>  
</div>


{ % endblock % }

Components and options for laying out your Bootstrap project, including wrapping containers, a powerful grid system, a flexible media object, and responsive utility classes.

Containers

Containers are the most basic layout element in Bootstrap and are required when using our default grid system. Choose from a responsive, fixed-width container (meaning its max-width changes at each breakpoint) or fluid-width (meaning it’s 100% wide all the time).

Use .container-fluid for a full width container, spanning the entire width of the viewport.
