Intro to styles

How to apply styles?

The way to use Mui-treasury is to think like composing legos. There are just 2 pieces, component and style. Both can be simple or complex depend on shape and feature.

First select the main lego (component) then the other lego (style) need to be compatible with the component otherwise they won’t fit together and the result is not what you expected.

Which style is compatible?

You will see on your left that we categorize into 2 sections.

1. Material-UI base component : this works right away with Material-UI v4.x component. All you need to do is

import React from 'react';
import Button from '@material-ui/core/Button';
import { useGithubBtnStyles } from '@mui-treasury/styles/button/github';
import { usePushingGutterStyles } from '@mui-treasury/styles/gutter/pushing';

const GithubButton = () => {
  const styles = useGithubBtnStyles();
  const gutterStyles = usePushingGutterStyles();
  return (
    <div className={gutterStyles.parent}>
      <Button classes={styles} variant={'contained'}>
      <Button classes={styles} variant={'contained'} color={'primary'}>

export default GithubButton;
