# Adding Kickstand UI to an Ember Project

# Adding Styles

Adding the Kickstand UI styles to your Ember app is fairly straight forward thanks to the ember-cli-sass package. If you haven't already configured your project for SASS run the following command to install the required packages:

ember install ember-cli-sass

Change the file name app/styles/app.css to app/styles/app.scss and import the Kickstand UI styles into your app.scss file:

@import 'kickstand-ui/src/scss/styles';

Alternately, you can specify the path to the source in the include paths in your ember-cli-build.js:

var app = new EmberApp({
    sassOptions: {
        extension: 'scss',
        includePaths: [
            'node_modules/kickstand-ui/src/scss'
        ]
    }
});

# Adding Components

Note

This is an adaptation from the Stencil documentation.

Working with Kickstand UI in Ember is really easy thanks to the ember-cli-stencil addon. It handles:

  • Importing the required files into your vendor.js
  • Copying the component definitions into your assets directory
  • Optionally generating a wrapper component for improved compatibility with older Ember versions

Start off by installing the Ember addon

ember install ember-cli-stencil

Now, when you build your application, Stencil collections in your dependencies will automatically be discovered and pulled into your application. You can just start using the custom elements in your hbs files with no further work needed. For more information, check out the ember-cli-stencil documentation.
