Manual installation (zip package)

Step 1

Download MDB 4 jQuery Pro package

Step 2

Unzip downloaded package and open it in the code editor

Step 3

Explore our documentation (menu on the left). Choose components you like, copy it to your project and compose your website. And yes, it's that simple!

Note: Manual installation with a .zip package is the easiest way, but many useful features are not available there.
To use the full potential of MDB and all available options, we recommend installation through MDB CLI.


CLI installation is the most efficient way to use MDB. It enables options such as:

  • Free hosting (supports custom domains, SSL, FTP access)
  • Install any MDB package with a single command
  • Easy updates with a single command
  • Backend starter templates (Laravel, plain PHP, node.js & more)
  • WordPress setup in 3 minutes (blog, ecommerce or blank project)
  • Git repository for you and your team
Install MDB CLI


You can also download MDB 4 directly from our GitHub.
