Bootstrapping MVC

Using Bootstrap and the MVC Framework to Build Web Applications

About the Book

So, you're a developer building an app, and you want it to look great?

Take the guesswork out of your design and leave the "making it look good" part to the many designers who use the Bootstrap front end framework. Exploit your skills as a .NET developer and your background in ASP.NET to explore ways you can leverage the MVC Framework with Bootstrap.

These pages walk you through a sample project with the explicit intent of using the MVC Framework in conjunction with the web's most popular CSS and JavaScript framework.

Dive into controllers, actions, views and partials to see how these elements of your application development arsenal fit in with Bootstrap styling. Break down action filters and base controller classes to weave them together with specific elements of the design library.
