Keep in mind that the Single Use license does not allow installation via gitlab link. The only option for this type of package is manual installation.


Before starting a project make sure to install Node LTS (12.x.x recommended) and generate gitlab access token.


To install MDB UI KIT in your project easily type the following command in the terminal. Remember to swap the access token before starting the installation.

        npm i git+

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.

Install specific version

When you install MDB from our GitLab server, the latest version of the library will be downloaded by default. You can add #version_number at the end of the installation command in order to install specific MDB version.

          npm install git+
