Quick start

Looking to quickly add Bootstrap Table to your Bootstrap v3 project? Use CDN, provided for free by the folks at UNPKG. 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="https://unpkg.com/bootstrap-table@1.14.2/dist/bootstrap-table.min.css">


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="https://unpkg.com/bootstrap-table@1.14.2/dist/bootstrap-table.min.js"></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.

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">

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.4.1/css/bootstrap.min.css" integrity="sha384-HSMxcRTRxnN+Bdg0JdbxYKrThecOKuH5zCYotlSAcp1+c8xmyTe9GYg1l9a69psu" crossorigin="anonymous">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/bootstrap-table@1.14.2/dist/bootstrap-table.min.css">

    <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>

    <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.min.js" integrity="sha256-FgpCb/KJQlLNfOu91ta32o/NMZxltwRo8QtmkMRdAu8=" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

    <script src="https://unpkg.com/bootstrap-table@1.14.2/dist/bootstrap-table.min.js"></script>

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">
