    Before starting project make sure to install Node LTS (12.x.x recommended).


    To install MDB UI KIT in your project easily type the following command in terminal:

              npm i mdb-ui-kit

    Importing JS modules

    You can import the entire library or just individual modules:

              import * as mdb from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // lib
              import { Input } from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // module

    Importing CSS file

    To import MDB stylesheet please use the following syntax:

              @import '~mdb-ui-kit/css/mdb.min.css';

    Importing SCSS modules

    You can also import individual SCSS modules. To do it properly, we recommend to copy them from the node_modules/mdb-ui-kit/src/scss location directly to your project and import in the same way as CSS files.

    Webpack integration

    You can significantly speed up the process of creating a new project based on Webpack using our Starter.
