Shot in the dark... bootstrap/twig/carousel question

Hey,

This may not be allowed here, if not, so be it!

I'm having a heck of a time figuring out the whole bootstrap/twig thing for Drupal 8.

It seems as if there is not a lot of code examples out there (I'm a non-programmer)

I thought the best way to learn Drupal 8 was to use a basic/mature theme, but do a lot of work myself. So I not only learn Drupal 8 (I've never used Drupal) - but also not buy a theme with a bunch of options because you don't learn anything when the answer is sitting right there.

However - I wasn't expecting that finding the answers would be so freaking hard. I'm all over the drupal.org site, and still can't find seemingly simple answers.

I WANT to implement a carousel on the front page of my DD Drupal8 Bootstrap website.

However - since it's Drupal 8 - and everything is twig, I really don't know where to start to begin doing it. There are examples in Drupal 7 where code examples are given. But none I can find anywhere for Drupal 8.

I would like to know:

1 - How the bootstrap TWIG code fits in the template. (I have found code in bootstrap.carousel.html.twig and item-list--bootstrap-carousel-indicators.html.twig, but do not know how to implement them)

2 - I also don't know how to ADD the slide images or where to add them.

Any help is appreciated. If I'm out of bounds for asking here, my apologies.

Simple answer for you..stick to Drupal 7!

D8 is more suited for advanced developers for now, unless you only want core and basic functionality.
