Topic: Problems with installation - help installing mdb on laravel

Sense4 priority asked 1 year ago

*Expected behavior*Some things tend to work like the design and javascripts. But whenever I want to add a plugin such as wysiwyg editor it doesn't seem to work. I get a warning in console (see screenshot) regarding setting 'mdb' and I don't know if its related.

Currently working on a local server using xampp and coding in php laravel (with blade scripts in front - also see screenshot). Then I use git to push it to a live server with the exact same result.

I'm no expert in javascript and that contributes a lot to the actual question. But maybe someone can help out here.

Installation:/mdb/standard/mdb-ui-kit-pro-advanced via NPMit created a node_modules folder that I moved into the public folder of the laravel project.

Actual behavior

Plugins does not seem to work when installed.

Try this solution: In project/resources/js folder create mdbPlugins.js and add following code:


import 'mdb-ui-kit/plugins/js/wysiwyg.min.js';
import 'mdb-ui-kit/plugins/css/wysiwyg.min.css';

Add import of mdb to app.js

import './bootstrap';
import 'mdb-ui-kit/css/mdb.min.css';
import * as mdb from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // lib
window.mdb = mdb;

Open vite.config.js and paste this code:


In your .php, before end of the body file import MDB Package and WYSIWYG using:


Let me know if it worked. In case it didn't help, please provide console screenshots again.

For any future user that might get the help from this - I recommend importing css earlier in the header. If I waited with the import of css to the footer there was a very 0.4 second blink delay every time the css was about to load.

Also (if you used xampp apache server) I only use xampp for localhost sql server now. I also needed to install npm on my localhost and use the build in php artisan serve as well as the npm commands (npm run dev) in development mode.

Case closed - everything is solved for me and I'm happy. :) This info is you there for any desperate developers ripping their hair out. :D
