Material Design for AngularJS Apps
Material Design is a specification for a
unified system of visual, motion, and interaction design that adapts across different devices. Our
goal is to deliver a lean, lightweight set of AngularJS-native UI elements that implement the
material design specification for use in AngularJS single-page applications (SPAs).
AngularJS Material support has officially ended as of January 2022.

AngularJS Material includes a rich set of reusable, well-tested, and accessible UI components.
Please note that using the latest version of AngularJS Material requires the use of
AngularJS 1.7.2 or higher.
AngularJS Material supports the screen reader versions listed
- Visit material.angularjs.org online to review the API, see the
components in action via live demos, and to read our detailed guides which include the layout system,
theming system, typography, and more.
- Or you can build the documentation and demos locally; see
Build Docs & Demos for details.
Developers can build AngularJS Material using NPM and gulp.
First install or update your local project’s npm dependencies:
Install Gulp v3 globally:
npm install -g gulp@3
Then run the gulp tasks:
# To build `angular-material.js/.css` and `Theme` files in the `/dist` directory gulp build # To build the AngularJS Material Docs and Demos in `/dist/docs` directory gulp docs
For development, use the
docs:watch NPM script to run in dev mode:
# To build the AngularJS Material Source, Docs, and Demos in watch mode npm run docs:watch
For more details on how the build process works and additional commands (available for testing and
debugging) developers should read the Build Guide.
For developers not interested in building the AngularJS Material library… use NPM to install
and use the AngularJS Material distribution files.
Change to your project’s root directory.
# To get the latest stable version, use NPM from the command line. npm install angular-material --save # To get the most recent, latest committed-to-master version use: npm install http://github.com/angular/bower-material#master --save

Visit our distribution repository
for more details on how to install and use the AngularJS Material distribution files within your local
CDN versions of AngularJS Material are available.
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 or Plunker.
Once you have all the necessary assets installed, add
ngMessages as dependencies for your
angular.module('myApp', ['ngMaterial', 'ngMessages']);
