Wordpress plugin: How to depend on other plugins?

Tags: css,wordpress,twitter-bootstrap,plugins

Problem :

I am writing a simple plugin for wordpress (actually a widget, packaged as a plugin, because reasons). I am using bootstrap to style the widget, because reasons. Now, the problem is that should I include bootstrap along the plugin or depend on another plugin (for example https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-bootstrap-css/). The first is easy, but not too nice way to do it. The second I actually have no idea going about. I have found some plugins (such as Plugin-Dependecies) that could be used for it, but I'd like to do it without the meta-plugin.

Is there a way for a plugin to depend on another plugin out-of-the-box? If yes, how should I do it?

Or if there is a better way to do the styling, what would that be?

Thanks in advance.
