Angular 8 Material Design Tutorial & Example

Throughout this tutorial, we’ll learn about using Angular Material 8 to create professional UIs.
In the previous tutorial, you have seen how you can install Angular CLI 8 and generate a brand new Angular 8 front-end. Now let’s see how we can add Angular Material 8 to our Angular application…

What’s Material Design?

Material Design is a design language created by Google in 2014. It dictates a set of principles and guidelines for creating UIs including motion (animations) and interaction (gestures).

What is Angular Material?

Angular Material is the implementation of Material Design for Angular. It offers a plethora of components and patterns for navigation, forms, buttons and layouts.

At this time, Angular Material 8 is the newest version.

In this tutorial, we’ll see how to add Material Design to Angular 8 in two ways:

  • The long way: by following a bunch of steps manually. This works for Angular 4+ versions.
  • The short way: by using the ng add command to quickly add Angular Material in one step using Angular Schematics. This method only works with Angular 6+.

Step1: Installing Angular Material 8 and Angular CDK

Head over to your terminal, navigate inside your created Angular front-end application and then run the following commands to install Angular Material 8 and Angular 8 CDK

$ npm install --save @angular/material @angular/cdk

Step 2: Adding Support for Angular Animations

Some Angular Material components use animations so you need to add support for animations in your Angular 8 front-end application in order to enable these animations.

Head back to your terminal and run the following command to install the Angular animations module

$ npm install --save @angular/animations

Next, you only need to add this module to your app configuration. So go ahead and open the src/app/app.module.ts file then import the BrowserAnimationsModule module and add it to the list of imports:

import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';

imports: [
    BrowserModule, BrowserAnimationsModule

Step 3: Adding Support for Gestures with HammerJS

Some Angular Material components depend on HammerJS for gestures support. So you need to add HammerJS to your application in order to get all the features of those components.

You can simply head to your terminal and install the library from npm:

$ npm install --save hammerjs

You’ll then need to import the library in your app entry point (main.ts)

/* [...] */
import 'hammerjs';

if (environment.production) {

  .catch(err => console.log(err));

Step 4: Including a Theme

Themes are required to add styles to the Material components used in your application. You can either use a custom or a pre-built theme.

Themes are CSS files. To find all the available pre-built themes you can check the @angular/material/prebuilt-themes folder in the node_modules folder in your project:


So let’s use the deeppurple-amber.css theme for our application.

Simply open the style.css file and add the following CSS @import

@import '~@angular/material/prebuilt-themes/deeppurple-amber.css';

Adding Angular Material 8 with **ng-add** and Schematics

With the release of Angular 6+, the new ng add command is available which makes it easy to add new capabilities to the project.

This command will use the package manager to download new dependencies and invoke corresponding installation scripts. This is making sure that the project is updated with dependencies, configuration changes and that package-specific initialization code is executed.

In the following, we’ll use the ng add command to add Angular Material to the previously created Angular 8 application. Head back to your command line, make sure you navigate inside your project’s folder and run the following command:

$ ng add @angular/material

By executing this command, we’re installing Angular Material 8 and the corresponding theming into the project. Furthermore new starter components are registered into ng generate.


That’s it, we now have updated our Angular 8 front-end application to use Angular Material. In the next tutorial we’ll see more detailed example of using Material data-table to create tables for our data.

3 Examples Of Design Applications With Great UX

When it comes to design, it has long been said that simplicity is key. And although I always understood the basis for this saying, I never fully appreciated what it really meant.

As a beginner it is natural to want to show all your ability by wowing your audience. And as a teacher I see my students making this mistake often. They try to build out features as much as possible and try to showcase every aspect of their ability. As many of you know, this approach does not always result in the most aesthetically pleasing design, let alone the most user friendly experience. This is why I have stressed the importance of simplicity to all my students from the first day I started teaching.

For our latest project, I assigned teams of 4 to each create a prototype for a design application.

Install Angular - Angular Environment Setup Process

Angular is a TypeScript based framework that works in synchronization with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. To work with angular, domain knowledge of these 3 is required.

  1. Installing Node.js and npm
  2. Installing Angular CLI
  3. Creating workspace
  4. Deploying your First App

In this article, you will get to know about the Angular Environment setup process. After reading this article, you will be able to install, setup, create, and launch your own application in Angular. So let’s start!!!

Angular environment setup

Install Angular in Easy Steps

For Installing Angular on your Machine, there are 2 prerequisites:

  • Node.js
  • npm Package Manager

First you need to have Node.js installed as Angular require current, active LTS or maintenance LTS version of Node.js

Download and Install Node.js version suitable for your machine’s operating system.

Npm Package Manager

Angular, Angular CLI and Angular applications are dependent on npm packages. By installing Node.js, you have automatically installed the npm Package manager which will be the base for installing angular in your system. To check the presence of npm client and Angular version check of npm client, run this command:

  1. npm -v

Installing Angular CLI

  • Open Terminal/Command Prompt
  • To install Angular CLI, run the below command:
  1. npm install -g @angular/cli

installing angular CLI

· After executing the command, Angular CLI will get installed within some time. You can check it using the following command

  1. ng --version

Workspace Creation

Now as your Angular CLI is installed, you need to create a workspace to work upon your application. Methods for it are:

  • Using CLI
  • Using Visual Studio Code
1. Using CLI

To create a workspace:

  • Navigate to the desired directory where you want to create your workspace using cd command in the Terminal/Command prompt
  • Then in the directory write this command on your terminal and provide the name of the app which you want to create. In my case I have mentioned DataFlair:
  1. Ng new YourAppName

create angular workspace

  • After running this command, it will prompt you to select from various options about the CSS and other functionalities.

angular CSS options

  • To leave everything to default, simply press the Enter or the Return key.
