Bootstrap Theme Overview

The Kendo UI for Angular Bootstrap theme is part of the Kendo UI for Angular library of UI components. It is distributed through NPM under the kendo-theme-bootstrap package.


Due to recent changes in rendering, the Kendo UI Bootstrap theme package now requires a kendo-angular-inputs@^4.0.0 version. For more information, refer to issue #2018 on GitHub.

  1. Download and install the Kendo UI Bootstrap theme package.

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-theme-bootstrap
  2. For the next steps that include alternative approaches for theme installation, refer to the instructions in the article on styling in Kendo UI.

If you include the Bootstrap framework from its source, you have to add kendo-theme-bootstrap and any variable customizations before you import the Bootstrap framework.

  // Set the variables here.
  @import "~@progress/kendo-theme-bootstrap/dist/all.scss";
  @import "~bootstrap/scss/bootstrap.scss";


To apply the Bootstrap theme to any of the examples on this website, use the theme chooser drop-down at the top-right corner of the page. The Material theme styling is loaded by default.

To simultaneously preview multiple components from different packages, to build your own theme, or to customize any of the available Kendo UI ones, use the capabilities of the Kendo UI Theme Builder web application.
