Bootstrap3-pug-node is a useful tool for developers who want to quickly bootstrap their web applications using Bootstrap 3 templates. With an easy installation process and a collection of translated Bootstrap templates, developers can save time by incorporating these templates directly into their projects. The project utilizes Pug (formerly Jade) for rendering, NodeJS and Express for server-side functionality, and Grunt for automation.


Express.js is a simple Node.js framework for single, multi-page, and hybrid web applications.


Grunt is a popular JavaScript task runner that automates repetitive tasks like minification, compilation, and testing, allowing developers to focus on writing code.


Pug is a high-performance template engine for Node.js and browsers that enables developers to write HTML templates using a concise and intuitive syntax. It supports a range of features, including template inheritance, conditionals, loops, mixins, and more, and can be easily integrated into a variety of web frameworks and build tools.
