One of the technologies that have gained the most popularity among software developers is React, becoming the favorite of thousands of developers worldwide to design web pages and dynamic applications with an optimal frontend that is to the liking of users.

 

React is an open-source library created by Facebook. React, or ReactJS, allows developers to quickly and efficiently build user interfaces by including Java files in their HTML. It is one of the most popular Java libraries in the world and is used by big platforms like Netflix, Airbnb, and even Walmart.

 

As we mentioned earlier, React is used in most cases to design the frontend of an application or website. Another technology that also dominates this field is Bootstrap.

 

On their official website, they define Bootstrap as "the world's most popular front-end open-source toolkit, including Sass variables and mixins, a responsive grid system, extensive prebuilt components, and powerful JavaScript plugins."

 

How to use Bootstrap in React?

 

It is possible to integrate both technologies to work in the frontend of an application or website and we will explain the step by step:

 

Using Bootstrap CDN

 

Using BootstrapCDN is the easiest way to add Bootstrap to your React app. No installations or downloads are required, just put a link in the head section of your application, like this:

 

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.0/css/bootstrap.min.css"
integrity="sha384-9gVQ4dYFwwWSjIDZnLEWnxCjeSWFphJiwGPXr1jddIhOegiu1FwO5qRGvFXOdJZ4"
crossorigin="anonymous">

 

To use the JavaScript components that come with Bootstrap, you need to place the following script near the bottom of your pages to activate them:

 

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.slim.min.js"
integrity="sha384-q8i/X+965DzO0rT7abK41JStQIAqVgRVzpbzo5smXKp4YfRvH+8abtTE1Pi6jizo"
crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/popper.js/1.14.0/umd/popper.min.js"
integrity="sha384-cs/chFZiN24E4KMATLdqdvsezGxaGsi4hLGOzlXwp5UZB1LY//20VyM2taTB4QvJ"
crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

<script src="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.0/js/bootstrap.min.js"
integrity="sha384-uefMccjFJAIv6A+rW+L4AHf99KvxDjWSu1z9VI8SKNVmz4sk7buKt/6v9KI65qnm"
crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

 

If you are using create-react-app to develop your app, then your public/index.html page should look like this:

 

<!DOCTYPEhtml>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">
    <meta name="theme-color" content="#000000">
    <!--
      manifest.json provides metadata used when your web app is added to the
      home screen on Android. See https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/engage-and-retain/web-app-manifest/
    -->
    <link rel="manifest" href="%PUBLIC_URL%/manifest.json">
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="%PUBLIC_URL%/favicon.ico">
    <!--
      Notice the use of %PUBLIC_URL% in the tags above.
      It will be replaced with the URL of the `public` folder during the build.
      Only files inside the `public` folder can be referenced from the HTML.
      Unlike "/favicon.ico" or "favicon.ico", "%PUBLIC_URL%/favicon.ico" will
      work correctly both with client-side routing and a non-root public URL.
      Learn how to configure a non-root public URL by running `npm run build`.
    -->
    
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.0/css/bootstrap.min.css"
    integrity="sha384-9gVQ4dYFwwWSjIDZnLEWnxCjeSWFphJiwGPXr1jddIhOegiu1FwO5qRGvFXOdJZ4"
    crossorigin="anonymous">
    
    <title>React App</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <noscript>
      You need to enable JavaScript to run this app.
    </noscript>
    <div id="root"></div>
    <!--
      This HTML file is a template.
      If you open it directly in the browser, you will see an empty page.
      You can add webfonts, meta tags, or analytics to this file.
      The build step will place the bundled scripts into the <body> tag.
      To begin the development, run `npm start` or `yarn start`.
      To create a production bundle, use `npm run build` or `yarn build`.
