This is an updated version of one of our most popular blog post ever: Quick tips: 5 columns layout with Twitter Bootstrap
A lot has changed in Bootstrap 4 and now making 5 columns layout is very straightforward. To do this you need to create as many
div elements as you need (in our case 5) and let Bootstrap do its magic.
Easy, right? Ok, but how it works?
In the new version, Bootstrap is using
flexbox to adjust widths and position of layout elements, so no more fixed percentage values. Flexbox allows to create truly fluid and responsive layouts using the power of CSS3. More about flexbox itself you can find in A complete guide to Flexbox by CSS-Tricks.
If you are looking for more configuration options for layout elements in Bootstrap please check the official Bootstrap documentation.
