Bootstrap, from Twitter

Bootstrap is a toolkit from Twitter designed to kickstart development of webapps and sites.
It includes base CSS and HTML for typography, forms, buttons, tables, grids, navigation, and more.

Nerd alert: Bootstrap is built with Less and was designed to work out of the gate with modern browsers in mind.

Basic alerts

.alert-message

One-line messages for highlighting the failure, possible failure, or success of an action. Particularly useful for forms.

Heads up! This is an alert that needs your attention, but it’s not a huge priority just yet.

Example code

<div class="alert-message warning">
  <a class="close" href="#">×</a>
  <p><strong>Holy guacamole!</strong> Best check yo self, you’re not looking too good.</p>
</div>

Block messages

.alert-message.block-message

For messages that require a bit of explanation, we have paragraph style alerts. These are perfect for bubbling up longer error messages, warning a user of a pending action, or just presenting information for more emphasis on the page.
