Installing Angular Material

You can install this package locally either with npm, jspm, or bower.

Please note that Angular Material requires Angular 1.3.x or higher.

Using the Angular Material Library

Now that you have installed the Angular libraries, simply include the scripts and stylesheet in your main HTML file, in the order shown in the example below. Note that npm will install the files under /node_modules/angular-material/ and bower will install them under /bower_components/angular-material/.

npm

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=no" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/node_modules/angular-material/angular-material.css">
</head>
    <body ng-app="YourApp">
 
    <div ng-controller="YourController">
 
    </div>
 
    <script src="/node_modules/angular/angular.js"></script> 
    <script src="/node_modules/angular-aria/angular-aria.js"></script> 
    <script src="/node_modules/angular-animate/angular-animate.js"></script> 
    <script src="/node_modules/angular-material/angular-material.js"></script> 
    <script>
 
        // Include app dependency on ngMaterial 
 
        angular.module( 'YourApp', [ 'ngMaterial' ] )
            .controller("YourController", YourController );
 
    </script> 
 
</body>
</html>

bower

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=no" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/bower_components/angular-material/angular-material.css">
</head>
    <body ng-app="YourApp">
 
    <div ng-controller="YourController">
 
    </div>
 
    <script src="/bower_components/angular/angular.js"></script> 
    <script src="/bower_components/angular-aria/angular-aria.js"></script> 
    <script src="/bower_components/angular-animate/angular-animate.js"></script> 
    <script src="/bower_components/angular-material/angular-material.js"></script> 
    <script>
 
        // Include app dependency on ngMaterial 
 
        angular.module( 'YourApp', [ 'ngMaterial' ] )
            .controller("YourController", YourController );
 
    </script> 
 
</body>
</html>

Using the CDN

CDN versions of Angular Material are now available at Google Hosted Libraries.

With the Google CDN, you will not need to download local copies of the distribution files. Instead simply reference the CDN urls to easily use those remote library files. This is especially useful when using online tools such as CodePen, Plunkr, or jsFiddle.

  <head>
 
    <!-- Angular Material CSS now available via Google CDN; version 0.9.4 used here -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angular_material/0.9.4/angular-material.min.css">
 
  </head>
  <body>
  
    <!-- Angular Material Dependencies -->
    <script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/1.3.6/angular.min.js"></script> 
    <script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/1.3.6/angular-animate.min.js"></script> 
    <script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/1.3.6/angular-aria.min.js"></script> 
    
    <!-- Angular Material Javascript now available via Google CDN; version 0.9.4 used here -->
    <script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angular_material/0.9.4/angular-material.min.js"></script> 
    
  </body>

Note that the above sample references the 0.9.4 CDN release. Your version will change based on the latest stable release version.

Jasmine Testing with Angular Material


If you are using Angular Material and will be using Jasmine to test your own custom application code, you will need to also load two (2) Angular mock files:
  • Angular Mocks - angular-mocks.js from /node_modules/angular-mocks/angular-mocks.js
  • Angular Material Mocks - angular-material-mocks.js from /node_modules/angular-material/angular-material-mocks.js

Shown below is a karma-configuration file (karma.conf.js) sample that may be a useful template for your own testing purposes:

module.exports = function(config) {
 
  var SRC = [
    'src/myApp/**/*.js',
    'test/myApp/**/*.spec.js'
  ];
 
  var LIBS = [
    'node_modules/angular/angular.js',
    'node_modules/angular-animate/angular-animate.js',
    'node_modules/angular-aria/angular-aria.js',
    'node_modules/angular-material/angular-material.js',
    
    'node_modules/angular-mocks/angular-mocks.js',
    'node_modules/angular-material/angular-material-mocks.js'
  ];
 
  config.set({
 
    basePath: __dirname + '/..',
    frameworks: ['jasmine'],
    
    files: LIBS.concat(SRC),
 
    port: 9876,
    reporters: ['progress'],
    colors: true,
 
    autoWatch: false,
    singleRun: true,
    browsers: ['PhantomJS,Chrome']
 
  });
 
};
