5 min Quick Start:


Before you use MDB React make sure you have installed Create React App package. This package contains development environment that will speed up the development process. Node 6 or higher is required.

To install Create React App, in your command line type:

npm install -g create-react-app

New project:

Step 1: If you haven't downloaded MDB React package yet, go to Getting Started page and download it now.

Step 2: Unzip downloaded package and open your unpacked directory.

To install the dependencies, depending on your node module manager, run:

          $ npm install

          $ yarn

Step 3: Now after you've downloaded everything it's time to write the second command which let us serve our app on localhost using:

          $ npm start

          $ yarn start

Step 4: When you check what is served at your port 8080 you should see app default screen.

Step 5: 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!

Existing project:

Step 1:  Create new react project using the command:

create-react-app myApp

Step 2:  cd myApp
