Taking what we learned about creating a PHP + MySQLi CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) application and making it more functional with a bit of style. This episode we will introduce Bootstrap, FontAwesome, and DataTables.

I use Bootstrap because it easy to get started with and includes most of the CRUD application look we are needing. You can use other frameworks but I have found using Bootstrap as a basis is a great way to start your CRUD application development.

This episode focuses on the design, a table with sorting, searching, paging and ordering as well as iconography. This is part two of our video series on PHP CRUD.
