How to use the mdl components with webpack

Just use it. Add the MdlModule to your NgModule imports and you are done!

How to use the mdl components with system js

You need to configure your system-config.js file:

const map: any = {
  'angular2-mdl': 'vendor/angular2-mdl'
/** User packages configuration. */
const packages: any = {
  'angular2-mdl': { main: 'bundle/angular2-mdl.js'}

css from material-design-lite

You may include the material-deisgn-lite css in your html and you're done!

<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />
<link href="" rel="stylesheet">

Under you'll find a customizing tool to change the theme colors.

How to use the scss files from material-design-lite

This package includes the scss files from material-design-lite. With these files you are able to change the colors and other variables in your own scss files:

@import "~angular2-mdl/scss/color-definitions";
$color-primary: $palette-blue-500;
$color-primary-dark: $palette-blue-700;
$color-accent: $palette-amber-A200;
$color-primary-contrast: $color-dark-contrast;
$color-accent-contrast: $color-dark-contrast;
@import '~angular2-mdl/scss/material-design-lite';

To make this working you need to find out the way how you could tell your build system where the scss is located. For example with webpack you can use the special ~angular2-mdl syntax or you can configure the includePaths:

sassLoader: {
    includePaths: [util.root('node_modules', 'angular2-mdl', 'scss')]


Every contribution is welcome. Please checkout the file.


This package should work with every version of angular 2. But you should know that this package is compiled with ngc and ngc generates metadata for aot. These metdata are versioned. The following table lists these versions and the correspondig angular version:

angular2-mdl version metadata version angular version
2.7.0 1 <2.3.0
2.8.0 2 2.3.0
>=2.9.0 3 >=2.3.1

If you need a working example for the current angular-cli with the current angular2-mdl and angular versions please have a look at:
