Many large projects e.g Twitter use Bootstrap. So it definitely it isn't bad. But from my experience, it is not that great either. You will be happier using a utility first framework like Tailwind CSS. My reasons for 👎 Bootstrap 1. The style is written in Sass. To customise Bootstrap you need to install Sass on your development machine. 2. It comes in only one theme. You still need to write a decent amount of CSS to make your website unique. What then is the point?! 3. Bootstrap v4, depends on jQuery. You need jQuery for bootstrap.js to work. So that makes 2 dependencies - Sass, jQuery. 🤔 Bootstrap 5 no longer depends on jQuery. 4. It has a fairly long learning curve and worse still, every new version brings breaking changes and new additions. It is not uncommon for a Bootstrap designer to waste the day searching for simple things like floating an element. Is it pull-right or float-right or justify-content-end or align-items-end? In short, it is a waste of time. For me at least.

Hitesh Suthar Why not we are also using but problem is that if you will try to use latest version of bootstrap then there maybe problem to update because there maybe huge difference between previous and latest version but no problem we can update phase by phase.
