An overview of Bootstrap Table, how to download and use, basic templates, and more.

Quick start

Looking to quickly add Bootstrap Table to your project? Use CDN, provided for free by the folks at CDNJS. Using a package manager or need to download the source files? Head to the downloads page.


Copy-paste the stylesheet <link> into your <head> before all other stylesheets to load our CSS.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">


Place the following <script>s near the end of your pages, right before the closing </body> tag, to enable them. jQuery must come first, then Bootstrap.js, and then our JavaScript plugins.

<script src=""></script>

Starter template

Be sure to have your pages set up with the latest design and development standards. That means using an HTML5 doctype and including a viewport meta tag for proper responsive behaviors.

For Bootstrap v4, we use Font Awesome as the default icons, so need to import Font Awesome link.

PS: Because we use babel-cli to compile the ES6 source code, we don’t support import babel-polyfill to solve the problem on IE, So we need to use core.js to solve this problem now, we will use webpack to compile in the future.

<script src=""></script>

Put it all together and your pages should look like this:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
    <!-- Required meta tags -->
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">

    <!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="" integrity="sha384-GJzZqFGwb1QTTN6wy59ffF1BuGJpLSa9DkKMp0DgiMDm4iYMj70gZWKYbI706tWS" crossorigin="anonymous">

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="">

    <title>Hello, Bootstrap Table!</title>
    <table data-toggle="table">
          <th>Item ID</th>
          <th>Item Name</th>
          <th>Item Price</th>
          <td>Item 1</td>
          <td>Item 2</td>

    <!-- jQuery first, then Popper.js, then Bootstrap JS, and then Bootstrap Table JS -->

HTML5 doctype

Bootstrap Table requires the use of the HTML5 doctype. Without it, you’ll see some funky incomplete styling, but including it shouldn’t cause any considerable hiccups.

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
