Responsive Typography

Responsive typography refers to scaling text and components by simply adjusting the root element’s font-size within a series of media queries. Bootstrap doesn’t do this for you, but it’s fairly easy to add if you need it.

Here’s an example of it in practice. Choose whatever font-sizes and media queries you wish.


html {
  font-size: 1rem;
}
@include media-breakpoint-up(sm) {
  html {
    font-size: 1.2rem;
  }
}
@include media-breakpoint-up(md) {
  html {
    font-size: 1.4rem;
  }
}
@include media-breakpoint-up(lg) {
  html {
    font-size: 1.6rem;
  }
}
								

Lead text

An incresed size of text which is suppose to be a highlighted text. You can apply by adding class lead to wrapper element.

Vivamus sagittis lacus vel augue laoreet rutrum faucibus dolor auctor. Duis mollis, est non commodo luctus.


<p class="lead">
</p>
								

Inline elements

You can use the <mark> tag to highlight text.

You can use the mark class to highlight text.

This line of text is meant to be treated as deleted text. Wrapped in <del> tag.

This line of text is meant to be treated as no longer accurate. Wrapped in <s> tag.

This line of text is meant to be treated as an addition to the document. Wrapped in <ins> tag.

This line of text will render as underlined. Wrapped in <u> tag.

This line of text is meant to be treated as fine print. Wrapped in <small> tag.

This line of text is meant to be treated as fine print. Added small class.

This line rendered as bold text. Wrapped in <strong> tag.

This line rendered as bold text. Wrapped in <b> tag.

This line rendered as italicized text. Wrapped in <em> tag.

This line rendered as italicized text. Wrapped in <i> tag.


<p>You can use the mark tag to <mark>highlight</mark> text.</p>
<p><del>This line of text is meant to be treated as deleted text.</del></p>
<p><s>This line of text is meant to be treated as no longer accurate.</s></p>
<p><ins>This line of text is meant to be treated as an addition to the document.</ins></p>
<p><u>This line of text will render as underlined</u></p>
<p><small>This line of text is meant to be treated as fine print.</small></p>
<p><strong>This line rendered as bold text.</strong></p>
<p><em>This line rendered as italicized text.</em></p>
								

Abbreviations

Stylized implementation of HTML’s <abbr> element for abbreviations and acronyms to show the expanded version on hover. Abbreviations have a default underline and gain a help cursor to provide additional context on hover and to users of assistive technologies.

Add class initialism to an abbreviation for a slightly smaller font-size.

attr

HTML


<p><abbr title="attribute">attr</abbr></p>
<p><abbr title="HyperText Markup Language" class="initialism">HTML</abbr></p>
								

Code

Inline code

To mark parts of text as a code inline, wrap it in <code> tags.

Code blocks

Use <pre> tags for multiple lines of code. Once again, be sure to escape any angle brackets in the code for proper rendering. You may optionally add the pre-scrollable class, which will set a max-height of 340px and provide a y-axis scrollbar.

<p>Sample text here...</p>
<p>And another line of sample text here...</p>

Variables

For indicating variables use the <var> tag.

y = mx + b

User Input

Use the <kbd> to indicate input that is typically entered via keyboard.

To switch directories, type cd followed by the name of the directory.
To edit settings, press ctrl + ,

Sample output

For indicating sample output from a program use the <samp> tag.

This text is meant to be treated as sample output from a computer program.


<!-- Inline code -->
For example, <code>&lt;section&gt;</code> should be wrapped as inline.
<!-- Code blocks -->
<pre><code>&lt;p&gt;Sample text here...&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;And another line of sample text here...&lt;/p&gt;</code></pre>
<!-- Variables -->
<var>y</var> = <var>m</var><var>x</var> + <var>b</var>
<!-- User Input -->
To switch directories, type <kbd>cd</kbd> followed by the name of the directory.<br>
To edit settings, press <kbd><kbd>ctrl</kbd> + <kbd>,</kbd></kbd>
<!-- Sample output -->
<samp>This text is meant to be treated as sample output from a computer program.</samp>
								

Blockquote

For quoting blocks of content from another source within your document. Wrap <blockquote class="blockquote"> around any HTML as the quote.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.

Adding a source

Add a <footer class="blockquote-footer"> for identifying the source. Wrap the name of the source work in <cite>.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.

Someone famous in Source Title

Alignment

Use text utility classes text-left, text-center, text-right or their responsive variants as needed to change the alignment of your blockquote.

Center

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.

Someone famous in Source Title
Right

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.

Someone famous in Source Title

<blockquote class="blockquote">
	<p class="mb-0">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.</p>
</blockquote>
<!-- With source -->
<blockquote class="blockquote">
	<p class="mb-0">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.</p>
	<footer class="blockquote-footer">Someone famous in <cite title="Source Title">Source Title</cite></footer>
</blockquote>
<!-- Center aligned -->
<blockquote class="blockquote text-center">
	<p class="mb-0">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.</p>
	<footer class="blockquote-footer">Someone famous in <cite title="Source Title">Source Title</cite></footer>
</blockquote>
<!-- Right aligned -->
<blockquote class="blockquote text-right">
	<p class="mb-0">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.</p>
	<footer class="blockquote-footer">Someone famous in <cite title="Source Title">Source Title</cite></footer>
</blockquote>
								

Unstyled list

Remove the default list-style and left margin on list items (immediate children only) with class list-unstyled. This only applies to immediate children list items, meaning you will need to add the class for any nested lists as well.

  • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
  • Consectetur adipiscing elit
  • Integer molestie lorem at massa
  • Facilisis in pretium nisl aliquet
  • Nulla volutpat aliquam velit
    • Phasellus iaculis neque
    • Purus sodales ultricies
    • Vestibulum laoreet porttitor sem
    • Ac tristique libero volutpat at
  • Faucibus porta lacus fringilla vel
  • Aenean sit amet erat nunc
  • Eget porttitor lorem

<ul class="list-unstyled">
	<li>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet</li>
	<li>Consectetur adipiscing elit</li>
		<ul>
			<li>Phasellus iaculis neque</li>
			<li>Ac tristique libero volutpat at</li>
		</ul>
	</li>
	<li>Aenean sit amet erat nunc</li>
	<li>Eget porttitor lorem</li>
</ul>
								

Inline list

Remove a list’s bullets and apply some light margin with a combination of two classes, list-inline and list-inline-item.

  • Lorem ipsum
  • Phasellus iaculis
  • Nulla volutpat

<ul class="list-inline">
	<li class="list-inline-item">Lorem ipsum
	<li class="list-inline-item">Phasellus iaculis
	<li class="list-inline-item">Nulla volutpat
</ul>
								

Description list

Align terms and descriptions horizontally by using our grid system’s predefined classes (or semantic mixins). For longer terms, you can optionally add a text-truncate class to truncate the text with an ellipsis.

Description lists
A description list is perfect for defining terms.
Euismod

Vestibulum id ligula porta felis euismod semper eget lacinia odio sem nec elit.

Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus.
