Material UI

MUI is an open source project that implements Google’s Material Design guidelines. With a complete collection of ready to use components for you to customize, it allows users to create their own custom design system faster.
In other words, using Material UI allows you to create new products or add new features to your products faster without having to sacrifice usability and style.

For designers this means you get more time to design great user experiences rather than creating and testing UI components from scratch.

A top priority for us when creating this library of UI components was to make Material UI easily accessible to designers –from the very start of the design process.
As a result you got a set of highly customizable components to help you build high-quality and, of course, beautiful experiences for your users in the least amount of time.

Of course, these UI components have been crafted to design MUI based apps, but thanks to its versatility they can be used for any web or app design.

Our drag and drop MUI component library will help you design user-friendly and visually appealing apps. From buttons, forms and icons to ready-to-use cards and modals, including pre-designed animations that ensure the design process goes smoothly and efficiently.

Here’s a list of the UI components you can find in this library:

MUI library tables and navigation components
  • Data tables: Data tables, when used correctly, can be an efficient way of organizing data information and maximize the user experience. You’ll find a table for any type and quantity of data or its intended use. Table components include options like a sorting table to find specific items, or spanning tables to customize your data layout.
  • Data display and Feedback: These categories include all the primary, secondary, outline, and icon chip buttons and tooltips available in material design. As well as all alert components such as success messages, warning messages, and error messages which are key for communicating with users.
  • Cards and dialogs: Card components are useful for displaying and structuring information, so we’ve included various card designs and modals that you just need to drag and drop.
  • Drawer: Similar to modals, drawers allow you to display additional content and functionality while staying on the same page. If you need to display more complex content, you’ll sure find an option for your design in this category.
