TailwindCSS Configurations

Once you install @material-tailwind/react you need to wrap your tailwind css configurations with the withMT() function coming from @material-tailwind/react/utils.

const withMT = require("@material-tailwind/react/utils/withMT");
 
module.exports = withMT({
  content: ["./src/**/*.{js,jsx,ts,tsx}"],
  theme: {
    extend: {},
  },
  plugins: [],
});

Theme Provider

@material-tailwind/react comes with a theme provider that set's the default theme/styles for components or to provide your own theme/styles to your components. You need to wrap your entire application with the ThemeProvider coming from @material-tailwind/react.

On the src/index.js or src/index.tsx if you're using typescript put the code bellow.

import React from "react";
import ReactDOM from "react-dom/client";
import App from "./App";
import "./index.css";
 
import { ThemeProvider } from "@material-tailwind/react";
 
const root = ReactDOM.createRoot(document.getElementById("root"));
 
root.render(
  <React.StrictMode>
    <ThemeProvider>
      <App />
    </ThemeProvider>
  </React.StrictMode>
);

Example

Now you're good to go and use @material-tailwind/react in your project.

import { Button } from "@material-tailwind/react";
 
export default function Example() {
  return <Button>Button</Button>;
}
