Hi everyone I a gonna share one of my first posts I written on Medium, I hope you all will like it useful. We were working with a Jhipster project and wanted to integrate MD Bootstrap that is a material design + Bootstrap framework.JHipster is a web application generator using Spring Boot for backend and Angular for front End with multiple technologies.

Before starting you must have Sass support in your project

Link to Jhipster :http://jhipster.tech/

MD Bootstrap provides various design components based on material design and layouts. You can check here :

https://mdbootstrap.com/getting-started/

So let’s start steps for integrating MD Bootstrap with JHipster

  1. First create a directory in your system with name let myAPP or any you want.
  2. CD using terminal or file explorer in your system into above created myApp folder.
  3. Open terminal in myApp (If you have not JHipster setup follow link https://www.jhipster.tech/installation/).
  4. Enter Command to generate JHipster project in your folder

    yo jhipster

  5. After JHipster is installed. In the same terminal give the command for installing external libraries

    npm install -–save chart.js@2.5.0 font-awesome hammerjs

  6. To app.module.ts add

    import { NgModule,Injector,NO_ERRORS_SCHEMA } from @angular/core’;
    import { MDBBootstrapModule } from angular-bootstrap-md;
    @NgModule({
    imports: [
    MDBBootstrapModule.forRoot(),
    ],
    schemas: [ NO_ERRORS_SCHEMA ]
    });
    
  7. To Vendor.scss add

    /* after changing this file run ‘yarn run webpack:build’ */
    $fa-font-path: ~font-awesome/fonts;
    // Images Path for angular-bootstrap-md
    $image-path: ../../../../../node_modules/angular-bootstrap-md/img !default;
    // Fonts Path for angular-bootstrap-md
    $roboto-font-path: ../../../../../node_modules/angular-bootstrap-md/font/roboto/ !default;
    /***************************
    put Sass variables here:
    eg $input-color: red;
    ****************************/
    // Override Boostrap variables
    @import bootstrap-variables;
    // Import Bootstrap source files from node_modules
    @import node_modules/font-awesome/scss/font-awesome;
    @import node_modules/angular-bootstrap-md/scss/bootstrap/bootstrap;
    @import node_modules/angular-bootstrap-md/scss/mdb-free;
    
  8. In angular-cli.json add

    “styles”: [
    “../node_modules/font-awesome/scss/font-awesome.scss”,
    “../node_modules/angular-bootstrap-md/scss/mdb-free.scss”,
    “./styles.scss”,
    “content/scss/vendor.scss”,
    “content/scss/global.scss”
    ],
    “scripts”: [
    “../node_modules/chart.js/dist/Chart.js”,
    “../node_modules/hammerjs/hammer.min.js”
    ]
    
  9. Add the following into tsconfig.json file located in root folder



    “inlcude”: [ “node_modules/angular-bootstrap-md//*.ts ”,

    “src/
    /*.ts”

    ]


  10. Run in terminal to compile styles and scripts and inject to project



    yarn webpack:build

  11. That are all steps for integrating MD Bootstrap with Jhipster

Note : If you got any warnings in terminal after running yarn “webpack:build” then you can fix using tsLint manually

Note 2: If you got compile failed errors then you may have styles conflict
You can fix by removing normal bootstrap styles or comment it if you do not want to remove
//@import ‘node_modules/bootstrap/scss/bootstrap’;
