...let me think, about 2040, that's if youre lucky.

 

Its anyones guess. Adobe don't provide clear indications of when anything is going to be included. Dreamweaver is way behind the curve in relation to other editors and that's the truth, like it or not! Adobe wont admit it but Dreamweaver is NOT their priority and if it is they have shown very little intent over the past few years to convince anyone it is.

You don't need Adobe's permission to start using Bootstrap 5 or any other framework.  You can reference needed files from the official CDN or download them to your local site folder.   But to implement BS 5, you'll need to be familiar with the code changes.

I think that the OP probably mean in a palet interface, click and get the component and so on, as Bottstrap is currently implemented.

As it was only released to final in May of this year it might be a couple of releases before the features are native in DW, but as others have stated, you can use Bootstrap 5 without DW today, just not the user interface components.

If you think DW is in a better place or being more actively updated then when this post started you are wrong. It is in minimal maintenance mode only receiving essential updates. Your best bet is to use the examples above and include the bootstrap code on your pages to stay up to date with the latest versions.

In the interest of transparency, Dreamweaver is no  longer being developed.  It's merely being maintained.  No new features have been added since Fall 2020 (ver 21.x) except security & compatibility updates.

  • BOOTSTRAP:  Dreamweaver is stuck on version 4 which Bootstrap itself stopped supporting in early 2023. Users who need the latest stable release of Bootstrap 5 or higher must source it from the Bootstrap CDN and code manually.  The legacy Bootstrap code that DW inserts is NOT compatible with version 5+.
  • PHP:  The current PHP version is 8.2.  Yet Dreamweaver only supports versions 5 or 7.  For modern servers running PHP 8 or higher, this falls short of necessity.  Full stop, use another tool like Microsoft's Visual Studio Code or JetBrains' PHPStorm. 
  • jQuery Core & jQuery UI:  The jQ scripts in Dreamweaver are outdated. You'll need to code manually and source the latest scripts (version 3.7 or higher) directly from jQuery's CDN.

 

Adobe abandoned Brackets, the code engine that DW CC is based on.  And while DW is still a capable editor for manual coders, it might not be appropriate for use in ALL situations.  Use it with eyes wide open and alongside other coding tools that are in ACTIVE development.

Hope that helps.

When will the latest Bootstrap version be supported by Dreamweaver?

Bootstrap version 5 has been around for over 2 years now!

DW is in minimal maintenance mode and is only receiving essential updates to its core. No new features have been released. 4.4.x isn't even the latest in the 4.x build so I wouldn't hold my breath for version 5 support. If you really need to use the latest version, you will need to code the pages yourself in DW, but you will not have the UI features to drop elements on the page if that is what you are looking for.

Dreamweaver will never get Bootstrap 5 support. It's unfortunately dead in the water.

 

An excellent alternative is Pinegrow, which does fully support Bootstrap 5 and a huge library of components.

This duplicate post has been merged with your original one on the same topic.

 

The answer is the same now as it was in 2021.

Because Adobe has abandoned Dreamweaver, I will have to go to other software that is being pitched that is more up-to-date, better maintained and will use Bootstrap 5.3.  First Adobe abandons Muse, now Dreamweaver... what's the point?

I left 6 years ago and never looked back.

 

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.
