Last updated: May 3, 2019

The styles for all the common blocks and 3rd-party plugins used across the templates are located inside the styles/scss/blocks and styles/scss/plugins respectively.


The following are the most important structural content blocks in Shards Dashboards:

Shards Dashboards - Content Blocks

  1. Sidebar
  2. Navbar
  3. Page Header
  4. Content Area
  5. Footer (Not visible in preview, nested inside the content area)

At a high level, the markup is structured as follows:

  <div class="container-fluid">
    <aside class="main-sidebar">
      <!-- Main Sidebar Content -->

    <main class="main-content">
      <div class="main-content-container container-fluid">
        <div class="page-header">
          <!-- Page Header Content -->

        <!-- Template Specific Content -->

        <footer class="main-footer ...">
          <!-- Main Footer Content -->

Inside the scss/blocks directory there is also another partial SCSS stylesheet file called _small-stats.scss for the Small Stats Blocks used in both eCommerce and Analytics templates.

The main Sidebar element has the following extra elements and modifiers.

  • .main-sidebar__nav-title - To group sidebar navs in multiple groups.

Each sidebar .nav element has the following modifiers:

  • .nav--no-borders - To remove the .nav-links bottom border for a cleaner display.


The partial SCSS stylesheets required by the 3rd-party plugins are located inside the styles/scss/plugins directory.

The following plugins are covered in Shards Dashboards, the others being inherited from Shards.

  • DataTables
  • Dropzone.js
  • Bootstrap TagsInput
