Today we are happy to introduce the release of the JomDirectory 5.0! Most of the code has been completely rewritten and now uses fantastic Bootstrap 4 with all compatible libraries. JomDirectory 5 looks amazingly beautiful with all the new layouts and CSS. We have been working on this new release for a long time and we are really excited about it!
JomDirectory 5 now uses Bootstrap 4 as main front-end framework. Bootstrap in general is one of the most popular frameworks used for building fast and reliable responsive websites and apps.
