Installing with NPM

The Node Package Manager (NPM) is a popular JavaScript package manager.

This article assumes that you are familiar with the necessary steps to use browser-based libraries from NPM. Some of the tools that address this issue are Browserify, Webpack, and SystemJS. For more information on possible setups, refer to the sample repository on GitHub.

Kendo UI maintains the Kendo UI Core and the Kendo UI Professional NPM packages. All Kendo UI official releases, service packs, and internal builds are uploaded to both of them.

The Kendo UI Professional NPM package is available only for commercial license holders. For more information, refer to the list of Kendo UI components and their bundle support.

Kendo UI Core on NPM

The Kendo UI Core NPM package is available as kendo-ui-core on http://npmjs.com/ and is accessible without credentials. To install the package, run npm install --save kendo-ui-core.

Kendo UI Professional on NPM

The Kendo UI Professional NPM package is available as @progress/kendo-ui in the NPM registry. To install the package, run npm install --save @progress/kendo-ui.

  • The Progress NPM registry was retired in favor of npmjs.com. To start using the default registry, remove the two lines which contain registry.npm.telerik.com from your .npmrc file.
  • The scripts in the NPM package are not usable in the browser. To work around this issue, use a bundler such as WebPack.
  • After May 2017, the kendo legacy package that is available as a GitHub repository and is accessible through git+https://bower.telerik.com/npm-kendo-ui/npm-kendo.git will no longer be updated but will remain active.

Troubleshooting
