What are Bootstrap Figures?

Bootstrap Figures is the content element that allows you to display related images and text with an optional caption.


Installation

Manual installation (zip package)

To use the component, you first need to install the MDB 5 Free package


MDB CLI

Watch our Quick Start Tutorial to discover and use the full potential of MDB 5 and MDB CLI


NPM

Prerequisites

Before starting the project make sure to install Node LTS (12.x.x recommended).

Installation

To install MDB UI KIT in your project easily type the following command in the terminal:

npm i mdb-ui-kit

Importing JS modules

You can import the entire library or just individual modules:

import * as mdb from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // lib
import { Input } from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // module

Importing CSS file

To import MDB stylesheet please use the following syntax:

@import '~mdb-ui-kit/css/mdb.min.css';

Importing SCSS modules

You can also import individual SCSS modules. To do it properly, we recommend to copy them from the node_modules/mdb-ui-kit/src/scss location directly to your project and import in the same way as CSS files.

Webpack integration

You can significantly speed up the process of creating a new project based on Webpack using our Starter.


CDN

Installation via CDN is one of the easiest methods of integrating MDB UI KIT with your project. Just copy the latest compiled JS script tag and CSS link tag from cdnjs to the application.

Don't forget to add also Font Awesome and Roboto font if you need. Here's an example code:

CSS
<!-- Font Awesome -->
<link
  href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/5.15.1/css/all.min.css"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
<!-- Google Fonts -->
<link
  href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:300,400,500,700&display=swap"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
<!-- MDB -->
<link
  href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mdb-ui-kit/3.3.0/mdb.min.css"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
JS
<!-- MDB -->
<script
  type="text/javascript"
  src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mdb-ui-kit/3.3.0/mdb.min.js"
></script>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Customization

Basic example

Anytime you need to display a piece of contentβ€”like an image with an optional caption, consider using a <figure>.

Use the included .figure, .figure-img and .figure-caption classes to provide some baseline styles for the HTML5 <figure> and <figcaption> elements. Images in figures have no explicit size, so be sure to add the .img-fluid class to your <img> to make it responsive.

<figure class="figure">
  <img
    src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/Nature/4-col/img%20(45).jpg"
    class="figure-img img-fluid rounded shadow-3 mb-3"
    alt="..."
  />
  <figcaption class="figure-caption">A caption for the above image.</figcaption>
</figure>

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
<figure class="figure">
  <img
    src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/new/standard/city/041.jpg"
    class="figure-img img-fluid rounded shadow-3 mb-3"
    alt="..."
  />
  <figcaption class="figure-caption text-end">A caption for the above image.</figcaption>
</figure>

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
