You can also load the Bootstrap assets through the Bootstrap CDN, which is short for "content delivery network". Bootstrap 4 is the newest iteration of the toolkit, focused on front-end development. When you’re developing responsive web pages with CSS and HTML, Bootstrap 4 provides you with numerous shortcuts so you end up writing less CSS code and therefore you can focus on designing the web page.
