Semantic UI Installation

Semantic UI is a popular front-end development framework that provides a wide range of UI elements and components. In this page, we will guide you through the installation process of Semantic UI, which requires basic knowledge of command-line interface and package management tools.


To install Semantic UI, you need to have Node.js and npm (Node Package Manager) installed on your computer. Once you have them installed, open your terminal and run the following command to install Semantic UI through npm:

npm install semantic-ui --save

Alternatively, you can use Yarn (a faster and more secure package manager) by running:

yarn add semantic-ui


After installing Semantic UI, you need to import its CSS and JavaScript files in your HTML or JavaScript files. You can either include them manually using the <link> and <script> tags, or use a task runner like Gulp or Grunt to automate the process.

Once you have included the necessary files, you can use Semantic UI's classes and components in your HTML and CSS code. For example, you can use the ui button class to create a button with Semantic UI's default styles:

<button class="ui button">Click me</button>


Using a front-end framework like Semantic UI can significantly speed up your development process by providing pre-designed UI elements and functionality. Instead of reinventing the wheel and creating everything from scratch, you can use Semantic UI's components as a starting point and customize them to fit your needs. This reduces development time and ensures a consistent visual style throughout your website or application.


Here is an example of how to use a Semantic UI component (a dropdown) in your HTML code:

<div class="ui selection dropdown">
  <input type="hidden" name="gender">
  <i class="dropdown icon"></i>
  <div class="default text">Gender</div>
  <div class="menu">
    <div class="item" data-value="male">Male</div>
    <div class="item" data-value="female">Female</div>

This code creates a dropdown menu with two options (male and female) that can be selected and submitted as a form input.

After installing Semantic UI using npm or Yarn, you can use its classes and components in your HTML and CSS code. Using a front-end framework like Semantic UI is important for speeding up development time and ensuring a consistent visual style.
