Material Design Lite WordPress Theme

Browse By

Google recently announced Material Design Lite which is a set of components that assists web designers in adding the Material Design look and feel to a website. It doesn’t rely on any JavaScript frameworks and aims to optimize for cross-device use, gracefully degrade in older browsers, and offer an experience that is immediately accessible.

It didn’t take long before this was integrated into WordPress. MDLWP (not the catchiest name but I can see the logic!) is a free Material Design Lite WordPress theme that looks very promising. Developed by Brag Interactive, MDLWP is an open-source project for use by anyone who wishes to incorporate this style of design into their WordPress website. As well as utilizing Google’s design resources, MDLWP also incorporates Sass, Gulp, and Bower and can be found on GitHub.

The theme turned out pretty nice thanks to the components they released in the first version of MDL. The Material Design Lite WordPress theme is free. So far this is the only MDL WordPress theme I can find on the interwebs. If it gets enough interest, I will spend some more time adding features and page templates. The first would probably be WordPress customizer support.

For the nerds out there, the theme uses Sass, Gulp, and Bower. I was using Bower to pull in the MDL stylesheet and JS, but decided just to use the CDN. Please feel free to contribute to the theme over at GitHub. The GitHub page for MDLWP also goes over the Gulp tasks if you decide to do any kind of development with the theme. It’s always nice to share ideas and work with other individuals, so please don’t be afraid to submit a pull request.

For guidance of how to install and use the theme, check out the YouTube video below:-
