Variables

rmd-theme-default-contrast-ratio

Number

This is the default contrast ratio to use for color accessibility between background and foreground colors. This number should be at least:

  • 3 for large text (18pt normal or 14pt bold)
  • 4.5 for normal text
  • 7.1 for Level AAA requirements.
$rmd-theme-default-contrast-ratio: 3 !default;
See also

rmd-theme-better-contrast-colors

Since v2.4.0

Boolean

Boolean if the newer contrast ration defaults should be used. This basically will try to choose colors with a higher aspect ratio for all the default color variables in react md.

$rmd-theme-better-contrast-colors: true !default;

Examples

Better Contrast Enabled
@use '@react-md/theme/dist/scss/color-palette' as colors;
@use 'react-md' as * with
  (
    $rmd-theme-better-contrast-colors: true,
    $rmd-theme-primary: colors.$rmd-teal-500,
    $rmd-theme-secondary: colors.$rmd-pink-a-200
  );

// these are the rmd-defaults
// $rmd-theme-on-primary: rmd-theme-best-contrast-color($rmd-theme-primary) !default;
// $rmd-theme-on-secondary: rmd-theme-best-contrast-color($rmd-theme-secondary) !default;

.output {
  --p: #{$rmd-theme-primary};
  --s: #{$rmd-theme-secondary};

  // since black has a ~5.3 color ratio as compared to white with ~3.6
  --op: #{$rmd-theme-on-primary};
  --os: #{$rmd-theme-on-secondary};
}
Better Contrast Disabled
@use '@react-md/theme/dist/scss/color-palette' as colors;
@use 'react-md' as * with
  (
    $rmd-theme-better-contrast-colors: false,
    $rmd-theme-primary: colors.$rmd-teal-500,
    $rmd-theme-secondary: colors.$rmd-pink-a-200
  );

// these are the rmd-defaults
// $rmd-theme-on-primary: rmd-theme-best-contrast-color($rmd-theme-primary) !default;
// $rmd-theme-on-secondary: rmd-theme-best-contrast-color($rmd-theme-secondary) !default;

.output {
  --p: #{$rmd-theme-primary};
  --s: #{$rmd-theme-secondary};

  // white has a ~3.6 color ratio so it _is_ contrast compliant with the
  // minimal contrast ratios even though black would be ~5.6
  --op: #{$rmd-theme-on-primary};
  --os: #{$rmd-theme-on-secondary};
}

rmd-theme-linear-channel-values

List

Precomputed linear color channel values, for use in contrast calculations. See https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/G17.html#G17-tests

Algorithm:

  for c in 0 to 255:
  f(c) {
    c = c / 255;
    return c < 0.03928 ? c / 12.92 : Math.pow((c + 0.055) / 1.055, 2.4);
  }

This lookup table is needed since there is no pow in SCSS/Sass. You can make your own, but it is recommended to pass the computed values from a 'more complete' layer (like node) as a lookup table to speed up compilation time.

rmd-theme-accent-suffixes

}

rmd-theme-dark-elevation-styles

Since v2.5.4

mixin

Conditionally adds styles only when the $rmd-theme-dark-elevation variable is set to true. This will also work with the $rmd-theme-dark-class variable to either set the styles with a media query or only when the dark class has been enabled on a parent element.

Note: This will have a higher specificity than other variables so the colors might not be as expected. It is recommended to set a custom CSS variable instead of using this mixin.

Parameters
NameDescriptionTypeDefault Value
$css-modules

Boolean if this is being used within CSS Modules which will update the selector to work correctly by wrapping different parts with :global and :local.

Booleanfalse
$selector

An optional selector to use if the $rmd-theme-dark-class is 'prefers-color-scheme'. Otherwise, setting this to a value other than '&' will be joined to the $rmd-theme-dark-class.

rmd-theme-dark-elevation

Since v2.1.0

mixin

This mixin should normally be used with the rmd-elevation mixin to change the background color based on the current elevation in dark themes.

Note: This will have a higher specificity than other variables so the colors might not be as expected. It is recommended to set a custom CSS variable instead of using this mixin.

Parameters
NameDescriptionTypeDefault Value
$z-value

This should be a number between 0 and 24 representing the current elevation.

Number
$css-modules

Boolean if this is being used within CSS Modules which will update the selector to work correctly by wrapping different parts with :global and :local.

Booleanfalse

Examples

All z-values
@use 'react-md' as *;

.container {
  @for $i from 0 to 24 {
    @include rmd-theme-dark-elevation($i);
  }
}
All z-values with CSS Modules

rmd-theme-light

mixin

This mixin can be used to apply the light theme by updating every color theme variable across all react-md packages.

Note: You'll still need to ensure that all the package's mixins were imported to get this to work.

rmd-theme-dark

mixin

This mixin can be used to apply the dark theme by updating every color theme variable across all react-md packages.

This is really great to use within a media query for browsers that now support the prefers-color-scheme so that if the user has the dark theme enabled, they'll automatically gain the dark theme while using your app as well.

Note: You'll still need to ensure that all the package's mixins were imported to get this to work.

Examples

Media Query Example
@use 'react-md' as *;

@media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) {
  :root {
    @include rmd-theme-dark;
  }
}

react-md-theme

mixin

Creates all the styles for a theme in react-md. This will start by creating CSS Variables for each theme variable and then create class names for each variable.

Examples

Normal SCSS Usage
@use 'react-md' as *;

// declare your theme variables
$rmd-theme-primary: $rmd-teal-500;
$rmd-theme-secondary: $rmd-pink-a-400;

@include react-md-theme;

rmd-theme-get-swatch

function

A theme utility function to convert a material design color to the same color but with a different swatch. If your app is not using material design colors, this utility function is useless but you will need to define fallback colors so compliation does not fail.

Returns — Color

the new color within the same color family with the provided swatch and optional accent.

Parameters
NameDescriptionTypeDefault Value
$color

The material design color to create a new color for with the provided swatch.

Color
$swatch

Number
$accent

Boolean if the swatch is an accent color instead of a primary color.

$fallback-color

The color to fallback to if the $color is not a valid material design color. Since this is null by default, the complilation will fail until a valid fallback is provided.

Stringnull
Throws
  • Invalid fallback color:

Examples

    false,
    rgba($my-theme-color, 0.32)
  );
}

rmd-theme

function

A small utility function to get a color from the current theme. This is normally used along with the rmd-theme-var function so that both css variables and a fallback can be applied. If the provided style prop is a color or 'currentColor', the provided style prop will be returned instead.

Returns — Color

the theme color.

The theme style to get. This should be one of the keys from $rmd-theme-values.

String

rmd-theme-var

.example-class {
  color: rmd-example-get-var(color);
}

rmd-theme-text-color

function

This function is used to auto-generate "reasonable" defaults for the text colors based on a the background it is on. This will basically check if the provided color is considered light or dark, and choose a value from either the dark theme text colors or the light theme text colors so that it is still legible.

The color from either the light or dark theme text colors maps.

Parameters
NameDescriptionTypeDefault Value
$style

This should be one of the keys for the text colors map.

String
$color

This is either a color that will be checked for a contrast tone or one of 'light' | 'dark'.
