Install Material-UI, the world's most popular React UI framework.
Material-UI is available as an npm package.
To install and save in your
package.json dependencies, run:
// with npm npm install @material-ui/core // with yarn yarn add @material-ui/core
Please note that react >= 16.8.0 and react-dom >= 16.8.0 are peer dependencies.
Material-UI was designed with the Roboto font in mind. So be sure to follow these instructions. For instance, via Google Web Fonts:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:300,400,500,700&display=swap" />
In order to use the font
Icon component, you must first add the Material icons font.
Here are some instructions
on how to do so.
For instance, via Google Web Fonts:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/icon?family=Material+Icons" />
In order to use prebuilt SVG Material icons, such as those found in the icons demos you must first install the @material-ui/icons package:
// with npm npm install @material-ui/icons // with yarn yarn add @material-ui/icons
You can start using Material-UI with minimal Front-end infrastructure, which is great for prototyping.
Two Universal Module Definition (UMD) files are provided:
- one for development: https://unpkg.com/@material-ui/core@latest/umd/material-ui.development.js
- one for production: https://unpkg.com/@material-ui/core@latest/umd/material-ui.production.min.js
You can follow this CDN example to quickly get started.
⚠️ Using this approach in production is discouraged though - the client has to download the entire library, regardless of which components are actually used, affecting performance and bandwidth utilization.
⚠️ The UMD links are using the
latest tag to point to the latest version of the library.
This pointer is unstable, it shifts as we release new versions.
You should consider pointing to a specific version, such as v4.4.0.
A set of reusable components for design tools is available, designed to match the React components, and to help you craft great products:
