Codepen had the bootstrap built in processor
I mean, you should to know what to do.
also, just experiment where you want things to go
that is what all coders do, experiment and test

@BladymirL
Gotcha, so I guess I should just review the previous classes/lessons, and try to just use that to the best of my ability?
Ken Haduch
@khaduch
@BladymirL - it's good to get the basics down - there are a lot of things implemented in bootstrap. The most helpful features for the basic tribute and portfolio pages are the grid (row and column classes) text centering, and a handful of other things. Stick with the basics that freeCodeCamp covered in the lessons, good to review those. Then use Google search and ask questions like "centering text and images in Bootstrap". Sticking with Bootstrap V3 and making sure that you get the appropriate information related to that version is my recommendation - that is what the lessons are based on. That should get you started. Then, put questions and code in here and ask for help when needed. But spending some time trying to figure it out on your own will help with the learning efforts. Good luck!

i highly suggest not using bootstrap, and using vanilla css with flexbox. bootstrap is a dying framework. i have been a software engineer for the past 6 months or so, and i have never seen it, nor heard of anyone planning to use it. meanwhile, flexbox is the most important skill in css.
however, it just might be the area i'm in. but no matter what, flexbox is something you will use for a long long long time, and bootstrap (and any other css frameworks) is something that's eventually going to fade away.

@chrisandsuch https://www.codewars.com/ this is a nice resource. If you just keep on coding it becomes second nature. Sometimes, it is good to go back and read some books too. Here is a site that has some free books, https://github.com/EbookFoundation/free-programming-books. If there are bugs or something, To debug, I go through my code in blocks and check if each block of code works as intended with console.log().

meanwhile, flexbox is the most important skill in css.

I'd add CSS grid for your grid now. This is the proper tool to build your grid.

@kevinkiklee i'm not at all a big fan of BS but i don't see it as a dying framework. there are to many websites built based on it. flexbox is really great but will come grid and so on. was reading same thing about php as a dying language, but with frameworks like laravel, symfony, etc i really don't see it dying too soon. if for learning, I am for sure, strongly recommend pure("vanilla") css, javascript, php, etc.
Long Nguyen
@longnt80
@sorinr I think bootstrap will be way less popular for two reasons:
  • There are more and more frameworks coming out
  • Grid and flexbox
Sorin Ruse
@sorinr
@longnt80 i agree that its popularity may decrease in the next few years but besides the layout, that can be taken over by the newest flexbox and grid, BS still has a lot of well tested UI components that can be used in the projects. Nobody stops you mixing them around in achieving the best results
@longnt80 in fact is just CSS nothing more. as you have access to the BS source you can play around with it as you wish

@harryrf
Why do I get two different results?
aside#sidebar {
  // this one works
}

aside #sidebar {
  // this one does not
}
Long Nguyen
@longnt80
@harryrf those are two different things
aside#sidebar means the aside has the id of sidebar
Harry Fahringer III
@harryrf
Oh and the other looks for a div with the id of sidebar? Edit: Nested in aside tags.
Long Nguyen
@longnt80
aside #sidebar means aside is the parent of element #sidebar
Harry Fahringer III
@harryrf
Okay, thank you @longnt80

@gaitchs
could somebody explain to me why time is calculated like this
Date());
var seconds = Math.floor((t / 1000) % 60);
var minutes = Math.floor((t / 1000 / 60) % 60);
var hours = Math.floor((t / (1000 60 60)) % 24);
var days = Math.floor(t / (1000 60 60 * 24));
korzo
@korzo
@gaitchs because Date returns time in miliseconds
abraham anak agung
@padunk
@gaitchs about Date
korzo
@korzo
@gaitchs my answer was related to (t / 1000) part.
If you ask about modulo operator, then it's because you care only for remainder .
gaitchs gangmei
@gaitchs
function getTimeRemaining(endtime) {
var t = Date.parse(endtime) - Date.parse(new Date());
so what is returned to t
@padunk thanks reading it now..

@gaitchs t will be time remaining between endtime and the time your execute the function.

Hello, can you please give me feedback on my RecipeBox project? Take a look at : http://5a02dd7aa6188f3d7ea5f9ee.upholsterer-data-50377.netlify.com/ . Thanks !
sorry for the link, I built the React App on local machine and deployed it with netlify

@BladymirL You should try writing it in plain CSS, the less you learn to rely on a framework the more you can do. And yeah, Bootstrap is kinda dying, I've never really used it for that reason. Plus nowadays there are new things in CSS that pretty much make certain things in Bootstrap obsolete. But I would suggest messing with more than padding and divs; try to make something that challenges you.
Mike Boardley
@Boardley
That's why FreeCodeCamp and Coding Bootcamps are doing a dis-service to their students by allowing them to rely on a FrontEndFramework. They think they understand CSS & HTML and the reality is that when it comes time to actually build a full page that doesn't follow Bootstrap's pattern, they're lost.
Christopher Brown
@ChrisBrownie55
@Boardley Yeah, I agree, when I first came to FreeCodeCamp and did the Tribute Page challenge, it was barely decent (it was pretty much a copy of the example), but I recently came back to FreeCodeCamp and redid that one and since I had actually learned CSS, HTML and JavaScript I was actually able to build some interesting things and not to mention have it change to work on different devices which they didn't do a great job of teaching before you reach the tribute page.

@otmeek
Speaking of relying on Bootstrap, I start working at a company tomorrow as designer. What I have to do is 99% write scss. They use an in-house framework and I'm panicking about not understanding how to use it lol
heroiczero
@heroiczero
@otmeek do they have documentation on the framework? Read up on it.
Mafalda
@otmeek
@heroiczero no clue, I haven't been given any info, I'll need to ask all the questions tomorrow.
heroiczero
@heroiczero
@otmeek Usually if you understand CSS other frameworks are easier to pick up and manipulate.
Mafalda
@otmeek
Yeah I have a solid grasp on CSS, hope I can pick it up easily
