Get started with Materiable UI, a lightweight open source Web UI Kit that implements Google’s Material Design using Bootstrap 4 framework.
Looking to quickly add Materiable UI to your project? Follow the instructions bellow, or need to download the source files? Head to the downloads page.
Copy-paste the stylesheets <link> into your <head> before all other stylesheets to load our CSS.
Curious which components explicitly require jQuery, our JS, and Popper.js? Click the show components link below. If you’re at all unsure about the general page structure, keep reading for an example page template.
Our bootstrap.bundle.js and bootstrap.bundle.min.js include Popper, but not jQuery. For more information about what’s included in Bootstrap, please see our contents section.
Alerts for dismissing
Buttons for toggling states and checkbox/radio functionality
Carousel for all slide behaviors, controls, and indicators
Collapse for toggling visibility of content
Dropdowns for displaying and positioning (also requires Popper.js)
Modals for displaying, positioning, and scroll behavior
Navbar for extending our Collapse plugin to implement responsive behavior
Tooltips and popovers for displaying and positioning (also requires Popper.js)
Scrollspy for scroll behavior and navigation updates
Be sure to have your pages set up with the latest design and development standards. That means using an HTML5 doctype and including a viewport meta tag for proper responsive behaviors. Put it all together and your pages should look like this:
That’s all you need for overall page requirements. Checkout the components section to start laying out your site’s content.
Bootstrap employs a handful of important global styles and settings that you’ll need to be aware of when using it, all of which are almost exclusively geared towards the normalization of cross browser styles. Let’s dive in.
Bootstrap requires the use of the HTML5 doctype. Without it, you’ll see some funky incomplete styling, but including it shouldn’t cause any considerable hiccups.
Responsive meta tag
Bootstrap is developed mobile first, a strategy in which we optimize code for mobile devices first and then scale up components as necessary using CSS media queries. To ensure proper rendering and touch zooming for all devices, add the responsive viewport meta tag to your <head>.
For more straightforward sizing in CSS, we switch the global box-sizing value from content-box to border-box. This ensures padding does not affect the final computed width of an element, but it can cause problems with some third party software like Google Maps and Google Custom Search Engine.
On the rare occasion you need to override it, use something like the following:
With the above snippet, nested elements—including generated content via ::before and ::after—will all inherit the specified box-sizing for that .selector-for-some-widget.
