example: http://materialize.labs.my/

source: https://github.com/mkhairi/materialize-rails


This master branch now v1.0.0

Documentation for previous releases (v0.100.*) are available this branch.


In your Gemfile you need to add the materialize-sass gem:

gem 'materialize-sass', '~> 1.0.0'

And then run the bundler and restart your server to make the files available through the pipeline:

$ bundle install

Or install it separately:

$ gem install materialize-sass


a. Sass

Import Materialize styles in app/assets/stylesheets/application.scss:

@import "materialize";

NOTE: If you have just generated a new Rails application, it may come with a .css file instead. If this file exists, it will be served instead of Sass, so remove it.

$ rm app/assets/stylesheets/application.css

HINT: Override materialize color variable.

Since materialize color scheme are declared in color.scss you should import the color.scss first. then you can override color variable just like this:

@import "materialize/components/color-variables";
$primary-color: color("blue", "lighten-2") !default;
$secondary-color: color("yellow", "base") !default;
@import 'materialize';


You can import each component just like in this file below: https://github.com/mkhairi/materialize-sass/blob/master/assets/stylesheets/materialize.scss

b. JavaScript

Require Materialize javascripts in app/assets/javascripts/application.js:

//= require materialize


Require materialize-sprockets to provide individual Materialize components for ease of debugging

//= require materialize-sprockets

c. Icons

Include this line in the portion of your HTML code

  <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/icon?family=Material+Icons" rel="stylesheet"> 

or import this line in your application.scss

  @import "https://fonts.googleapis.com/icon?family=Material+Icons";

or install this gem for offline icons

  gem 'material_icons'
