Additional requirements Theme (Material Design)

Additional Requirements - Import the material design icons learn more

  • The easiest way to import material design icons is to provide a link in your index.html file like below:
<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/icon?family=Material+Icons" rel="stylesheet">
  • alternative solution:
  1. Install of the official npm module of the material design icons
npm i -s material-design-icons
  1. Import them in your angular.json file
"styles": [


Install above dependencies via npm.

Now install @angular-material-extensions/pages via:

npm install --save @angular-material-extensions/pages


Note:If you are using SystemJS, you should adjust your configuration to point to the UMD bundle. In your systemjs config file, map needs to tell the System loader where to look for @angular-material-extensions/pages:

map: {
  '@angular-material-extensions/pages': 'node_modules/@angular-material-extensions/pages/bundles/@angular-material-extensions/pages.umd.js',

Once installed you need to import the main module:

import { MatPagesModule } from '@angular-material-extensions/pages';

The only remaining part is to list the imported module in your application module. The exact method will be slightly different for the root (top-level) module for which you should end up with the code similar to (notice MatPagesModule .forRoot()):

NB: please do not forget to import the angular animations module in your root component too! (usally app.component.ts)

import { MatPagesModule } from '@angular-material-extensions/pages';
import {BrowserAnimationsModule} from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';

  declarations: [AppComponent, ...],
  imports: [MatPagesModule.forRoot(),
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule {

Other modules in your application can simply import MatPagesModule:

import { MatPagesModule } from '@angular-material-extensions/pages';

  declarations: [OtherComponent, ...],
  imports: [MatPagesModule, ...], 
export class OtherModule {

This library consists of 4 essential components.

  1. mat-pages the main container that hold the pages incl. the outlook view and the content

  2. mat-page-loader the container of each page. This component should have two nested elements which are the outlook and the content components (see below)

  3. mat-page-outlook the outlook view of a page. This can contain a custom component, custom layout or just a title.

  4. mat-page-content this is the content view of the page. This can be anything!!

  5. Example:

        <!-- put your own outlook view for the first page -->
        <!-- put your own content view for the first page -->
        <!-- put your own outlook view for the second page -->
        <!-- put your own content view for the second page -->
