The mdb.min.css file is a bundled stylesheet, so I'm afraid you can't override it directly. Anyway - there are some things you can do to achieve that :)

  1. You can try to move your index.css file before the MDB one
  2. To override MDB styles you can take advantage of CSS Cascade - use more precise selectors (i.e. p.some-class > div#some-id instead of .some-class > #some-id and an exclamation mark to break the cascade
  3. If there are more than some changes you want to provide - you can use our SCSS files provided in the /mdb-react-ui-kit/dist/scss catalog and theming utils. You can read more here: :)

Keep coding!
