Hello. How do you include MBD SCSS variables inside custom SCSS file?

Expected behavior

@import "~ng-uikit-pro-standard/assets/scss/bootstrap/variables";

$testVar: $font-family-base;

Actual behavior

Dear @Ungr

Please use the below code to import all of our MDB variables in your stylesheet:

@import "~ng-uikit-pro-standard/assets/scss/core/colors";
@import "~ng-uikit-pro-standard/assets/scss/core/variables";
@import "~ng-uikit-pro-standard/assets/scss/pro/variables";
