Do you know database driven websites with bootstrap ?

Often bootstrap sites are single pages or landing pages. Are there also examples of data driven websites ?

Hi Julien,

There are hundreds of database driven websites that are using Bootstrap, the site that comes to my head straight away is cdnjs.com but you can find a ton more sites on builtwithbootstrap.com.

Thanks, you right there a lot of examples, but also with a webshop ? Or database behind it ?

There are some, but the bigger sites typically sprinkle it in here and there as opposed to building their entire site off of it. Take twitter for example; they use it in their header, drop down menus, forms, and buttons but not their actual layout.

Thanks !

The 2 concepts are unrelated.

Front-end concerns like using a CSS framework is entirely unrelated to back-end concerns like which data persistence mechanism is being used.

Thanks James, using bootstrap not different from any other css frame work with for example php code to get database information.

Yep, that's exactly right.
