Spring and Gradle – adding to the project WebJars Bootstrap

If you wanted to add bootstrap UI CSS and JS files in thymeleaf then you can use following code:

<link th:href="@{/webjars/bootstrap/5.0.0/css/bootstrap.min.css}"
rel="stylesheet" media="screen" />
<script th:src="@{/webjars/bootstrap/5.0.0/js/bootstrap.min.js}"></script>

If those styles are still not loading then refresh project and if you are using spring security then you need to add following code in your extended class of

protected void configure(HttpSecurity http) throws Exception {
.antMatchers("/", "/home","/webjars/**", "/resources/**").permitAll()

It will solve your issue
