Topic: Primary Color - MDB Standard Installation

Digitalarbeit free asked 2 years ago

Hi all together,

I am new in MDBoostrap and I am very impressed about this product. The last time I work with bootstrap is years ago and its time to renew all my skills.

To my question:

I have an complete Installation of MDBootstrap via Zip Folder. Evertything works fine.

Now, I try to change the primary color via Sass. I was creating something like:

$theme-colors: (


Just an example. I put this code under /scss/custom/_variables.scss and try to compile it with "Live Sass Compiler" under "Visual Studio Code".

I try nearly everything, but I need some help.

Can somebody explain in easy words how to change the primary-color, secondary-color, where I can change the basic bootstrap Styles??

Is there maybe an Sass command I can use, maybe like "sass main.css" something like this? I already try, I get the the colors but then I miss other classes like "text-light" or similar...

Your Sass code seems to be correct. Make sure you compile it properly. Are you compiling your Sass to the file you import in your project? For further reference see your Live Sass settings:
