src/ (for development)

TypeScript + SCSS source files

.ts, .scss

which are NOT executable in browser

dist/ (for production)

JavaScript + CSS

executable in browser and compiled from src/ folder with command yarn build

demo/ (example page)

In this folder you can see an example in real use.


Colors, sizes and stuff

Using SASS (this file in 'src' folder), you can simply edit default styles, colors, position and customize plugin to fit your needs. 👍 (Or just edit directly css stylesheet)

Hint: Modify scss file, run yarn build and see the demo.



You can change svg icon in icons/ directory.

Custom text or sign

  1. Turn off svg icon as sass variable: $mst-icon: false
  2. Build your new stylesheet yarn build (now without svg icon)
  3. Put your new sign or text inside html <span> element like this:
<button class="material-scrolltop" type="button">


jQuery 1.7+
