Quick start

To use dash-bootstrap-components you must do two things:

  • Link a Bootstrap v5 compatible stylesheet
  • Incorporate dash-bootstrap-components into your layout

Linking a stylesheet

dash-bootstrap-components doesn't come with CSS included. This is to give you the freedom to use any Bootstrap v5 stylesheet of your choice. This means however that in order for the components to be styled properly, you must link to a stylesheet yourself.

For convenience, links to BootstrapCDN for each theme are available through the themes module, which can be used as follows:

import dash
import dash_bootstrap_components as dbc

app = dash.Dash(external_stylesheets=[dbc.themes.BOOTSTRAP])

For more information on how to link local or external CSS, check out the Dash documentation.

Build the layout

With CSS linked, you can start building your app's layout with our Bootstrap components. See our documentation for a full list of available components, which include:

Standard row and column-based layouts









... and many more.
