Hello Everyone!

Recently I have heard of Bootstarp like 'it is responsive' so that when we write code  for PC environment, the same can be viewed in Tablet , Mobile etc without any changes in the code. Is it true? Also I want to know whether Bootstrap is replacement for HTML, CSS, JavaScript ? or let me know What actually is Bootstarp and how it is related to HTML, CSS, JavaScript.

---Thanks.

Bootstrap is a library that contains both JavaScript and CSS. It allows you to quickly use visual components that are already provided by bootstrap, components which work equally well on desktop and mobile browsers. You use it by including the Bootstrap scripts and stylesheets on your page, and then using special classes for your HTML elements.

No framework replaces HTML, CSS or JavaScript. Frameworks work with, and layer upon, the existing technologies.

I wrote my first bootstrap based website about a month ago.  Here is how it typically goes.  You look around the web for a bootstrap template you want to use.  Some are free and some you have to pay for.  Once you find one you like, you download it and paste your text and images into the template.  I think this is how most developers use it.  

The templates are html that use the bootstrap base css and possibly add more css of their own on top.  As far as I know the bootstrap base css is a collection of libraries of css combined with javascript that are well organized and have most of the stuff that a designer needs.  So, this all is really just a well organized templating and piggy backing on others accomplishments.  Of course whenever you do this you are limited to what has already been built for you, unless you are a well seasoned web designer, which is a specialty in itself.  If the template is well done and you don't mess up its code it should nicely size itself to all devices.

Make sure you test the template to see that it does everything you want, before spending a bunch of time substituting in your own content.

It is also quite possible and feasible to develop your own site from scratch based upon Bootstrap without using a pre-made template.
