你好, こんにちは, 안녕하세요

Chinese (Simplified)

革命不是请客吃饭,不是做文章,不是绘画绣花,不能那样雅致,那样从容不迫,“文质彬彬”,那样“温良恭俭让”。革命就是暴动,是一个阶级推翻一个阶级的暴烈的行动。

Chinese (Tranditional)

山不在高,有仙則名;水不在深,有龍則靈。斯是陋室,惟吾德馨。苔痕上階綠,草色入簾青;談笑有鴻儒,往來無白丁。可以調素琴,閱金經。無絲竹之亂耳,無案牘之勞形。南陽諸葛廬,西蜀子雲亭。孔子云:「何陋之有?」

Japanese

祇園精舎の鐘の声、諸行無常の響きあり。沙羅双樹の花の色、盛者必衰の理をあらはす。おごれる人も久しからず。ただ春の夜の夢のごとし。たけき者も遂にはほろびぬ、ひとへ‌​に風の前の塵に同じ。

Korean

나라말이 중국과 달라, 한문・한자와 서로 통하지 아니하므로, 어리석은 백성들이 말하고자 하는 바가 있어도, 끝내 제 뜻을 펴지 못하는 사람이 많다. 내가 이를 불쌍히 여겨, 새로 스물 여덟 글자를 만드니, 사람마다 하여금 쉽게 익혀, 날마다 씀에 편하게 하고자 할 따름이다.

Use the lang attribute or add the cjk class to the container element to have better Asian CJK (Chinese, Japanese and Korean) support.

<p class="cjk">祇園精舎の鐘の声、諸行無常の響きあり。……</p>
<p lang="ja">祇園精舎の鐘の声、諸行無常の響きあり。……</p>

Blockquote

The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don't really even notice it, so it's part of everyday life.

- Bill Gates

Use the active class to make <tr> element highlighted.

<table class="table table-striped table-hover">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>name</th>
      <th>genre</th>
      <th>release date</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr class="active">
      <td>The Shawshank Redemption</td>
      <td>Crime, Drama</td>
      <td>14 October 1994</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>

Buttons

Buttons include simple button styles for actions in different types and sizes.

Add the btn class to <a>, <input> or <button> elements for a default button. There are classes btn-primary and btn-link for predefined primary and link buttons. A button with the loading class can show loading indicator.

<button class="btn">default button</button>
<button class="btn btn-primary">primary button</button>
<button class="btn btn-link">link button</button>

<!-- a button with loading state -->
<button class="btn loading">button</button>

Add the disabled class or the disabled attribute for a disabled button.

Button sizes

Add the btn-sm or btn-lg class for small or large button size. Also, you can add the btn-block class for a full-width button.

Please note that you could use the btn-action class for a square button, or add another circle class for a round button, which is often used as a Float Action Button (FAB).

<button class="btn btn-lg">large button</button>
<button class="btn btn-sm">small button</button>

<button class="btn btn-block">block button</button>

<button class="btn btn-action"><i class="icon icon-arrow-left"></i></button>
<button class="btn btn-action circle"><i class="icon icon-arrow-left"></i></button>

Icons with the icon class can be correctly rendered in each button size.

<button class="btn btn-primary btn-lg"><i class="icon icon-arrow-left"></i> large</button>
<button class="btn btn-primary"><i class="icon icon-arrow-left"></i> normal</button>
<button class="btn btn-primary btn-sm"><i class="icon icon-arrow-left"></i> small</button>

Button groups

If you want to use buttons as a group, add the btn-group class to the container. You can add the btn-group-block class for a full-width button group.

<div class="btn-group btn-group-block">
  <button class="btn">first button</button>
  <button class="btn">second button</button>
  <button class="btn">third button</button>
</div>

Forms

Forms provide the most common control styles used in forms, including input, textarea, select, checkbox, radio and switch.

<form>
  <!-- form input control -->
  <div class="form-group">
    <label class="form-label" for="input-example-1">Name</label>
    <input class="form-input" type="text" id="input-example-1" placeholder="Name" />
  </div>
  <!-- form radio control -->
  <div class="form-group">
    <label class="form-label">Gender</label>
    <label class="form-radio">
      <input type="radio" name="gender" />
      <i class="form-icon"></i> Male
    </label>
    <label class="form-radio">
      <input type="radio" name="gender" checked />
      <i class="form-icon"></i> Female
    </label>
  </div>
  <!-- form select control -->
  <div class="form-group">
    <select class="form-select">
      <option>Choose an option</option>
      <option>Slack</option>
      <option>Skype</option>
      <option>Hipchat</option>
    </select>
  </div>
  <!-- form switch control -->
  <div class="form-group">
    <label class="form-switch">
      <input type="checkbox" />
      <i class="form-icon"></i> Send me emails with news and tips
    </label>
  </div>
  <!-- form textarea control -->
  <div class="form-group">
    <label class="form-label" for="input-example-3">Message</label>
    <textarea class="form-input" id="input-example-3" placeholder="Textarea" rows="3"></textarea>
  </div>
  <!-- form checkbox control -->
  <div class="form-group">
    <label class="form-checkbox">
      <input type="checkbox" />
      <i class="form-icon"></i> Remember me
    </label>
  </div>
</form>

You can use :indeterminate pseudo class for indeterminate state of checkboxes.

If you want to have a horizontal form, add the form-horizontal class to the <form> container. And add the col-[1-12] class to the child elements for form row layout.

<form class="form-horizontal">
  <div class="form-group">
    <div class="col-3">
      <label class="form-label" for="input-example-1">Name</label>
    </div>
    <div class="col-9">
      <input class="form-input" type="text" id="input-example-1" placeholder="Name" />
    </div>
  </div>
  <!-- form structure -->
</form>

Form sizes

For smaller or larger input and select controls, you could add the input-sm/input-lg, select-sm/select-lg and label-sm/label-lg classes to the elements.

Input types

Input groups

@slack.com
slack.com/
@slack.com

If you want to attach text and button along with an input, add the input-group class to the input container. And add the input-group-addon class to the text element and input-group-btn to the button element.

<!-- normal input group -->
<div class="input-group">

  <input type="text" class="form-input" placeholder="..." />
</div>

<!-- large input group -->
<div class="input-group">
  <span class="input-group-addon addon-lg">...</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-input input-lg" placeholder="..." />
</div>

<!-- normal input group with button -->
<div class="input-group">
  <span class="input-group-addon">...</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-input" placeholder="..." />
  <button class="btn btn-primary input-group-btn">Submit</button>
</div>

Form validation styles

For inline code, you can use the element <code>. For multiline code snippet blocks, you can use <pre> with the code class as a container, and add <code> inside it. The data-lang attribute is rendered as the language name in the top right.

<!-- code snippets -->
<button class="btn">
  Submit
</button>
<pre class="code" data-lang="HTML"><code><span class="com">&lt;!-- code snippets --&gt;</span>
&lt;<span class="tag">button</span> <span class="atn">class</span>=<span class="atv">&quot;btn&quot;</span>&gt;
  Submit
&lt;<span class="tag">/button</span>&gt;
</code></pre>

Add the img-responsive class to <img> elements. The images will scale with the parent sizes.

macOS El Capitan Wallpaper

Add the img-fit-contain or img-fit-cover class to <img> or <video> elements. The media will crop itself to fit inside the element (and you don't need another container). This feature can replace the background image trick. Microsoft Edge support is in development.

macOS Yosemite Wallpaper
img-fit-contain
macOS Yosemite Wallpaper
img-fit-cover
<img src="img/osx-el-capitan.jpg" class="img-responsive ..." alt="..." />
<img src="img/osx-el-capitan.jpg" class="img-fit-contain ..." alt="..." />
<img src="img/osx-el-capitan.jpg" class="img-fit-cover ..." alt="..." />

You can use the element <figure> for an image with a caption. Add the figure class to <figure> element. The images with the img-responsive class will be responsive. And the included class figure-caption will provide basic style for caption. Also, you can use text-left, text-center and text-right for caption alignment.

macOS Yosemite Wallpaper

<figure class="figure">
  <img src="img/osx-yosemite-2.jpg" class="img-responsive ..." alt="..." />
  <figcaption class="figure-caption text-center">macOS Yosemite wallpaper</figcaption>
</figure>

For responsive video, add a container with the video-responsive class. Insert any YouTube, Youku or other iframe/embed video inside the container. The ratio is 16:9 by default. You may add video-responsive-4-3 for 4:3 ratio video container or video-responsive-1-1 for 1:1 ratio.

<div class="video-responsive video-responsive-4-3">
  <iframe src="..." width="..." height="..." frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
</div>
