Bootstrap Grid

Twitter Bootstrap is a free collection of tools for creating websites and web applications. It contains HTML and CSS-based design templates for typography, forms, buttons, charts, navigation and other interface components, as well as optional JavaScript extensions. One of the big feature of Bootstrap is the grid system. Being one of the popular, the Bootstrap grid comes with both static and responsive grid system that allows it to be used in any form of web-development. However designing for Bootstrap using Fireworks has become a bit worry some. There are numerous Bootstrap UI kits available on the web, but none come with the grid system. We wanted to change that. Today we are happy to bring you Bootstrap Grid System for Adobe Fireworks.
