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


Due to recent changes in rendering, the Kendo UI Default 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 Default theme package.

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-theme-default

To apply the Default 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.
