Using the SCSS Files

The SCSS files have one single dependency, the main Shards UI kit. In order to be able to compile the SCSS files you need to include the main Shards package (not compiled) inside your project or install it via yarn or npm depending on your project structure.

Finally, make sure you adjust the paths accordingly inside the shards-dashboards.scss file (line 15) to match Shards’ path. The example below assumes that your SCSS files are placed inside a styles folder and you are using NPM to manage your dependencies.

/* Base Shards UI Kit */
@import "../node_modules/shards-ui/src/scss/shards";


By default Shards Dashboard Lite uses and provides support for the following third-party libraries:
