Angular 14 components, directives and styles based on material design lite (v: 1.3.0). This package assumes that you are building an Angular app with TypeScript. Angular CLI makes it even easier but isn't required.

css from material-design-lite

You may include the material-design-lite css in your html and you're done!

<link rel="stylesheet" href=""/>
<link href="" rel="stylesheet">

Under you'll find a customizing tool to change the theme colors.

How to use the scss files from material-design-lite

This package includes the scss files from material-design-lite. With these files you are able to change the colors and other variables in your own scss files:

@import "~@angular-mdl/core/scss/color-definitions";

$color-primary: $palette-blue-500;
$color-primary-dark: $palette-blue-700;
$color-accent: $palette-amber-A200;
$color-primary-contrast: $color-dark-contrast;
$color-accent-contrast: $color-dark-contrast;

@import "~@angular-mdl/core/scss/material-design-lite";

To make this working you need to find out the way how you could tell your build system where the scss is located. For example with webpack you can use the special ~@angular-mdl/core syntax used above. Or you can configure the includePaths:

sassLoader: {
  includePaths: [util.root('node_modules', '@angular-mdl/core', 'scss')]


Additional components for @angular-mdl/core that are not part of material design lite

  • current angular version: 13

How to use the components

Install the components via npm. Please check out the individual readme for each component from the table above.

Starting with version 0.2.0 the components each have no css styles imported by default. You need to setup your build pipeline to include the scss files from each component you want to use. This makes it possible to configure the theming for the components you want to use.

If you are using webpack you may use the special webpack import syntax for node_modules:

@import '~@angular-mdl/core/scss/color-definitions';

$color-primary: $palette-blue-500;
$color-primary-dark: $palette-blue-700;
$color-accent: $palette-amber-A200;
$color-primary-contrast: $color-dark-contrast;
$color-accent-contrast: $color-dark-contrast;

@import '~@angular-mdl/core/src/scss-mdl/material-design-lite';

@import '~@angular-mdl/popover/popover';
@import '~@angular-mdl/select/select';

Another way is to include each component folder in the search path for your scss preprocessor. An example for webpack:

sassLoader: {
	includePaths: [


  • npm start - local dev server
  • npm build - build a production release
  • npm test - run the unit tests
