Awesome news specially for the folks who loves to use Bootstrap as their primary front end frame work.
I’ve been a fan as well for years and I use it to all of my projects.
So what’s new?
Well the biggest of all changes are the following.
No more Jquery as Bootstrap 5 has gone pure vanilla JS making things a bit more faster and lighter
- CSS custom properties
Oh yes! This makes CSS more powerful, If you’re not familiar with it here’s a quick link : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/Using_CSS_custom_properties
- Dropping Support for IE (Internet Explorer) to give way to CSS custom Properties.
- Updated forms
Yep, They’ve gone fully custom on this one.
- Enhanced grid system
- Utilities API
- Improved customizing docs
- Coming soon: RTL, offcanvas, and more
