A web framework (WF) or web application framework (WAF) is a software framework that is designed to support the development of web applications including web services, web resources, and web APIs. Web frameworks aim to automate the overhead associated with common activities performed in web development. For example, many web frameworks provide libraries for database access, templating frameworks, and session management, and they often promote code reuse. Although they often target development of dynamic web sites, they are also applicable to static websites.
Also it is called Front-end-framework.
I found another excellent description of bootstrap. Bootstrap is a free collection of tools for creating a websites and web applications.
Some reasons programmers prefer Bootstrap Framework
- Easy to get started
- Great grid system
- Base styling for most HTML elements(Typography,Code,Tables,Forms,Buttons,Images,Icons)
- Extensive list of components
- Pre Styled Components
Some of the components pre-styled are:
- Button Groups

- Labels & Badges
- Progress Bar
