Material Theme Overview

Installation

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

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

Dependencies

For the Kendo UI Material theme to closely implement the Material Design Guidelines, provide the Roboto font family and configure additional modules in your application.

By default, the Material theme uses the Roboto font family but the font itself is not included in the theme package.

You can add the font to the page from Google Fonts in the following way:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:300,400,500,700" />
<style>
  body { font-family: Roboto, sans-serif; }
</style>

Preview

To apply the Material 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.
