The Ultimate Bootstrap & Angular 8 Admin Theme Framework For Next Generation Applications

Quick Start

The steps below for the Default Package (with build tools). If you want to use Classic Package (without build tools), go to this Classic Package installation section. If you want to use Angular, go to this Angular Installation section.

  1. Download the latest theme source from the marketplace.

  2. Download and install Node.js from

  3. Start command prompt window or terminal and change directory to [root]/theme/default/tools/

    cd [root]/theme/default/tools
  4. Npm is the package manager for JavaScript and the world’s largest software registry. If you’ve just downloaded Node.js (and therefore npm), you’ll probably need to update your npm.

    npm install --global npm@latest

    Verify that npm in successfully installed, and version of installed npm will appear.

    npm --version
  5. Yarn is a package manager for your code.

    npm install --global yarn

    Verify that yarn in successfully installed, and version of installed yarn will appear.

    yarn --version

    Here is just a way to install yarn, using npm package manager. Alternatively, you can install yarn using other methods as stated in yarn installation site. More information on yarn installation, check the documentation:

    Don't forget to run yarn upgrade after every Metronic updates released in order to install newly added or updated 3rd-party plugins.

  6. Gulp is a toolkit that helps you automate your time-consuming tasks in development workflow. To install gulp globally.

    npm install --global gulp-cli

    If you have previously installed a version of gulp globally, remove it to make sure old version doesn't collide with new gulp-cli.

    npm rm --global gulp

    Verify that gulp in successfully installed, and version of installed gulp will appear.

    gulp --version
  7. Install yarn dependencies. Must execute in [root]/theme/default/tools/ folder.

  8. This below command will compile all the assets(sass, js, media) and copy HTML templates to [root]/theme/default/dist/ folder.

    gulp build

    By default dist folder does not exist and it will be generated only after running gulp task.

  9. This is an optional gulp task for demo purpose. It does set all the demo backend URL to point to demo API(KTDatatable and server side data fetching demos) in server.

    gulp apiurl

  10. Start the localhost server.

    gulp localhost

    Keep the console open. Open this link to run http://localhost:8080/demo1/

  11. The customization should be done from [root]/theme/default/src/assets/. After compilation refer to the distination folder [root]/theme/default/dist/.

  12. Watch the edited assets files (sass and js source files)

    gulp watch

    Watcher tracks changes to the files and automatically runs the compiler.

  13. Watch the edited sass files

    gulp watch:scss

    Run the watcher for the SASS files only.

  14. Watch the edited js files

    gulp watch:js

    Run the watcher for the JS files only.

I run a team of 20 product managers, developers, QA and UX resources. Previously we designed everything ourselves. For our newest platform we tried out Metronic. I cannot overestimate the impact Metronic has had. It's accelerated development 3x and reduced QA issues by 50%. If you add up the reduced need for design time/resources, the increase in dev speed and the reduction in QA, it's probably saved us $100,000 on this project alone, and I plan to use it for all platforms moving forward.
The flexibility of the design has also allowed us to put out a better looking & working platform and reduced my headaches by 90%. Thank you KeenThemes! Jonathan Bartlett, Metronic Customer
