MUI is designed from the ground up to be fast, small and developer friendly. By design it only includes the basic components you need to build a site that follows Google's Material Design guidelines. Some of the key features of MUI are:

  • Small footprint: mui.min.css - 6.6K, mui.min.js - 5.4K (gzipped)
  • A responsive grid to make mobile-friendly sites
  • No external dependencies
  • CSS library that can be customized with your own colors
  • JS library can be loaded asyncronously
  • Email library for styling HTML emails

To get started using MUI, go to the MUI website to see examples and download boilerplate HTML.

Browser Support

MUI is tested and works in:

  • IE10+
  • Latest Stable: Firefox, Chrome, Safari
  • iOS 6+

    $ cd mui
  2. Install node dependencies using npm
