Topic: Selected CSS/JavaScript and co-existence with DevExtreme

epochsys priority asked 10 months ago


I have some presale technical questions and was directed to this forum by someone in sales.

I am developing a large-scale enterprise product using MVC architecture C# and Dot Net Core. I use DevExtreme for many controls like DataGrid, Charts, and others.

I want to use MDB Standard PRO in my existing project and have the following questions:

  1. Can I use selected CSS/JavaScript libraries based on the components I want to use? For example, I want to use Tabs, so is there any way to have only those CSS/JavaScript components needed for Tabs?
  2. Can I use external tools, such as purgecss or PurifyCSS, to minimize the CSS/JavaScript libraries/Templates without breaking the code so that I only ship minimum resources?
  3. What would you suggest to maintain the compatibility of JavaScript/jQuery and Bootstrap versions with other products?
  4. Do I need to use Sass to use your libraries?

  1. You can use modules or crate custom MDB UI KIT version
  2. Yes, we have prepared starters that have PurgeCSS
  3. When creating our UI kit, we made sure that our JS code did not conflict with other libraries. Therefore, it is a namespace. For example, to create a modal init, you need to use code like this: const myModal = new mdb.Modal(document.getElementById('myModal'), options). Unfortunately, if you will be using modules, they are not namespaced. But in case of problems you can use src to create your own version of the MDB leaving only the components you need. Then you will be able to use, for example, the library option in webpack which will allow you to namespace your MDB UI KIT version. Unfortunately, when it comes to css classes, some of them may conflict with other libraries. Then the only option is to modify the source code and adapt the class names to your needs
  4. You don't have to. You can use a ready-made CSS file containing all component's styles or CSS for individual components (modules)
