After that, we will create the markup. Let’s first create the two buttons that will be used to witch the list/grid view. We will simply create a div and place the two-button with a unique ID.

<div class="well well-sm">
    <strong>Display</strong>
    <div class="btn-group">
        <a href="#" id="list" class="btn btn-default btn-sm"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-th-list"></span>List</a> 
        <a href="#" id="grid" class="btn btn-default btn-sm"><spanclass="glyphicon glyphicon-th"></span>Grid</a>
    </div>
</div>

<div class="container">
<div id="products" class="row list-group">
    <div class="item  col-xs-4 col-lg-4">
        <div class="thumbnail">
            <img class="group list-group-image" src="https://source.unsplash.com/400x250/?mobile" alt="" />
            <div class="caption">
                <h4 class="group inner list-group-item-heading">
                    Product title</h4>
                <p class="group inner list-group-item-text">
                    Product description... Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit,
                    sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.</p>
                <div class="row">
                    <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-6">
                        <p class="lead">
                            $21.000</p>
                    </div>
                    <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-6">
                        <a class="btn btn-success" href="#1">Add to cart</a>
                    </div>
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
