Bootstrap vs Helix: What are the differences?
Developers describe Bootstrap as "Simple and flexible HTML, CSS, and JS for popular UI components and interactions". Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web. On the other hand, Helix is detailed as "Rust and Ruby, Without the Glue". Helix allows you to write Ruby classes in Rust without having to write the glue code yourself.
Bootstrap belongs to "Front-End Frameworks" category of the tech stack, while Helix can be primarily classified under "Language Extensions".
Bootstrap and Helix are both open source tools. Bootstrap with 134K GitHub stars and 66K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Helix with 1.84K GitHub stars and 63 GitHub forks.

Good service with a good price, worth the money.
Leanstack was on Bootstrap 2. Chose this because it is wildly popular, so it’s active, has been used a lot in production, and has a ton of features. Anything you need to do from a UI perspective, there’s likely a plugin for it already part of the library. Haven’t tried the others, but we're happy with BS.
For StackShare, we upgraded to Bootstrap 3. I don’t like that they changed the name of columns, essentially breaking the grid layout for Bootstrap 2 and below, so that was a real pain to update. I hope they don’t do that again. Once we have more bandwidth, we’re totally going to decouple our markup from Bootstrap.
We started with a bootstrap based template and then completely rewrote it due to poor design of the template. Using boostrap properly was a great experience - once you learn it and use it properly, it's simple to use and very good at being responsive and adapting to the various screen view.
I simply bought a "job board" template for the website, which is written using Bootstrap 2. I'm hoping to upgrade the site to Boostrap 3 when I'll have a time.
Я просто купил шаблон для доски вакансий, написанный на Boostrap 2. Когда будет время перепишу все на Bootstrap 3.
