Developers need to understand that bootstrap framework isn’t an enormous thing. Bootstrap comes bundled with basic HTML and CSS design templates that include many common UI components. So, you need to understand bootstrap framework first of all.

Well, if you are wondering that after knowing bootstrap you don’t need to know CSS and HTML. Then my friend you are wrong as to perform best you must know CSS and HTML along with bootstrap.

#3. Don’t touch bootstrap CSS file.
