How Much Space Does Bootstrap CDN Install Take Up
Bootstrap CDN takes zero space on you server. Instead the files are stored on a network of global servers(CDN) to make the easily accessible to everyone on a server closest to them.
When a visitor visits the website, Bootstrap files will be downloaded on the visitors browser. If you are using the minified versions, Bootstrap will take — for version 5 and — for version 4.
If you use the non-minified version, Bootstrap 5 will use — while Bootstrap 4 is — in size.
What is This New Integrity Tag in the Bootstrap CDN
The integrity tag contains a value(hash) that the browser uses to check if the Bootstrap file being downloaded from the CDN has been manipulated.
Incase the browser check indicates any modification, the browser stops the files from being loaded by the website.
The hash is generated through file hashing. They take the Bootstrap file and run it through a file hashing program that generates the hash. This has is a representative of the file. When the browser receives the file from the CDN, it runs the file through its own file hashing program and generates a hash. It then compares the value on the integrity tag with its generated hash.
