Material Design for Angular
This is the home for the Angular team's Material Design components built for and with Angular.
See our Getting Started Guide if you're building your first project with Angular Material.
Check out our directory of design documents for more insight into our process.
If you'd like to contribute, you must follow our contributing guidelines.
You can look through the issues (which should be up-to-date on who is working on which features
and which pieces are blocked) and make a comment.

The goal of Angular Material
Our goal is to build a set of high-quality UI components built with Angular and TypeScript, following the Material Design spec. These components will serve as an example of how to write Angular code following best practices.
What do we mean by "high-quality"?
- Internationalized and accessible so that all users can use them.
- Straightforward APIs that don't confuse developers.
- Behave as expected across a wide variety of use-cases without bugs.
- Behavior is well-tested with both unit and integration tests.
- Customizable within the bounds of the Material Design specification.
- Performance cost is minimized.
- Code is clean and well-documented to serve as an example for Angular devs.
Browser and screen reader support
Angular Material supports the most recent two versions of all major browsers: Chrome (including Android), Firefox, Safari (including iOS), and IE11 / Edge
We also aim for great user experience with the following screen readers:
- NVDA and JAWS with IE / FF / Chrome (on Windows).
- VoiceOver with Safari on iOS and Safari / Chrome on OSX.
- TalkBack with Chrome on Android.
