Material Components for the web

Modular and customizable Material Design UI components for the web

Material Components for the web (MDC Web) helps developers execute Material Design. Developed by a core team of engineers and UX designers at Google, these components enable a reliable development workflow to build beautiful and functional web projects.

Material Components for the web is the successor to Material Design Lite, and has 3 high-level goals:

MDC Web strives to seamlessly incorporate into a wider range of usage contexts, from simple static websites to complex, JavaScript-heavy applications to hybrid client/server rendering systems. In short, whether you’re already heavily invested in another framework or not, it should be easy to incorporate Material Components into your site in a lightweight, idiomatic fashion.

Demos (updated with every release)

Note: Material Components Web follows semver and is still in version 0.x, which means it is regularly subject to breaking changes. We typically follow a 2-week release schedule which includes one minor release per month with breaking changes, and intermediate patch releases with bug fixes. A list of changes is always available in the CHANGELOG, and a tentative schedule of what we are working on next is available in the ROADMAP.

Quick start

Note: This guide assumes you have Node.js and npm installed locally.

Include CSS for a component

Note: This guide assumes you have webpack configured to compile Sass into CSS. See the getting started guide for pointers on how to configure webpack.

To include the Sass files for the Material Design button, install the Node dependency:

npm install @material/button

Then import the Sass files for


into your application. You can also use Sass mixins to customize the button:

@import "@material/button/mdc-button";

.foo-button {
  @include mdc-button-ink-color(teal);
  @include mdc-states(teal);

You also need to configure sass-loader to understand the


imports used by MDC Web. Update your


by changing

{ loader: 'sass-loader' }


  loader: 'sass-loader',
  options: {
    includePaths: ['./node_modules']
@material/button has documentation about the required HTML for a button. Update your application’s HTML to include the MDC Button markup, and add the foo-button class to the element:

<button class="foo-button mdc-button">

This will produce a customized Material Design button!
