PHP Bootstrap
A toolbox for creating mobile friendly websites!

Welcome to PHP Bootstrap!

Is your website mobile device friendly? (It's now expected by Google, for better search placement.)

"Smartphone usage is up 394 percent, and tablet usage is up a whopping 1,721 percent as these platforms now combine to account for 60 percent of all digital media time spent online. 3 Today, Google considers mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal and showcases the more mobile-friendly websites in their search results. 4 "

When it comes to creating websites for clients, there are a thousands of options. Every developer goes through a ton of stuff, during the learning curve. In the end though, there are usually a few favorites of the trade. In our case, it turned out to be PHP & Bootstrap. Why ?


  • PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. What distinguishes PHP from something like client-side JavaScript is that the code is executed on the server, generating HTML which is then sent to the client. 1


  • Bootstrap is a free and open-source front-end framework for designing websites and web applications. Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JavaScript framework for developing responsive, mobile-first websites. Bootstrap is also compatible with all modern browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, Safari, and Opera). 2


The Benefit of using PHP and Bootstrap combined for us, results in faster creation time for the client. This pages file size on the server side is a tad over 7K, yet on the client side (the page you see) it is over 22K. For the client, it saves cost. To the developer, it saves time and it's mobile device friendly... and today, that's most important.
