Jumbotron Bootstrap Tutorial

Bootstrap Jumbotron Tutorial

In this post, I will present to you the Jumbotron and Jumbotron-Fluid, which are new components in Bootstrap 4 Beta. As the name suggests (jumbo+tron), the Jumbotron class can increase the size of headings and add margins for the content displayed on a landing page Jumbotron.

Jumbotron shows a big box that highlights some special information or content.

To get a jumbotron of full width, and without rounded corners use the .jumbotron class outside all .container classes and instead add a .container within, as shown in the following example −

Tip: Inside a jumbotron, you can put nearly any valid HTML, including other Bootstrap 4 Beta elements/classes.

Use a <div> element with a class to create your.jumbotron. You have 2 types of Jumbotron in Bootstrap 4 Beta:


1. Jumbotron

The code snippet:

<div class="jumbotron">
  <h1 class="display-3">Hello, world!</h1>
  <p class="lead">This is a simple hero unit, a simple jumbotron-style component for
                  calling extra attention to featured content or information.</p>
  <hr class="my-2">
  <p>It uses utility classes for typography and
     spacing to space content out within the larger container.</p>
  <p class="lead">
    <a class="btn btn-primary btn-lg" href="#" role="button">Some action</a>

The Code

<div class="jumbotron jumbotron-fluid">
  <div class="container">
    <h1 class="display-3">Fluid jumbotron</h1>

                    the entire horizontal space of its parent.</p>

Code Explained.

  • Create a <div> that acts as a .container.
  • Inside this <div> create another <div> with the class of .jumbotron.
  • Next, add HTML headings to see the Jumbotron effect using the .jumbotron class.
  • After we execute this HTML code, we can clearly observe that in addition to a larger <h1> heading, the font-weight has been reduced to 200px.
