Table of contents

  • Includes bootstrap view
  • Includes bootstrap library
  • Define its class name

Step 1: Includes bootstrap view

To ensure proper rendering and touch zooming for all devices, add the responsive viewport meta tag to your <head>.

   <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

Step 2: Includes bootstrap library

First of all, load the Bootstrap framework CSS into the head tag of your webpage.

<!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css">
    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/umd/popper.min.js"></script>
    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/js/bootstrap.bundle.min.js"></script>

Step 3: Define its class name

After that, create the margin in with a class name .m-5.

    <div class="container">
        <h1> To give margin in bootstrap 4</h1>
        <div class="m-5 pb-5 bg-warning">I have a margin on all sides (3rem = 48px) and a bottom padding (3rem = 48px)
        </div>
    </div>

Example.

Let’s look at the following example to understand how it basically works:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

<head>
    <title>Bootstrap Example</title>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css">
    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/umd/popper.min.js"></script>
    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/js/bootstrap.bundle.min.js"></script>
</head>

<body>

    <div class="container">
        <h1> To give margin in bootstrap 4</h1>
        <div class="m-5 pb-5 bg-warning">I have a margin on all sides (3rem = 48px) and a bottom padding (3rem = 48px)
        </div>
    </div>

</body>

</html>
