A simple menubar component for Angular.

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import discordeliaMenu from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/@discordelia/menu';



A simple menu bar component for Angular 9+.

Documentation is work in progress.


  • This component is written with Angular 9, so it will not work with earlier versions of Angular
  • Internet Explorer is not supported.
  • No RTL support.
  • Partial keyboard support.
  • This is a simple component I implemented for my personal project, so I cannot guarantee you with frequent updates/bug fixes.


  • Install the following packages:
npm i @angular/cdk uuid @discordelia/popup @discordelia/contextmenu @discordelia/menu
  • Add the following line to your global stylesheet file (styles.scss)
@import "~@angular/cdk/overlay-prebuilt.css";
  • Import MenuModule in your app.module.ts file (or another module where you need it.)
