Angular 2

Are you interested in Angular 2? We are on our way! Check out ng-bootstrap.


Installation is easy as UI Bootstrap has minimal dependencies - only the AngularJS and Twitter Bootstrap's CSS are required. Notes:
  • Since version 0.13.0, UI Bootstrap depends on ngAnimate for transitions and animations, such as the accordion, carousel, etc. Include ngAnimate in the module dependencies for your app in order to enable animation.
  • UI Bootstrap depends on ngTouch for swipe actions. Include ngTouch in the module dependencies for your app in order to enable swiping.

Angular Requirements

  • UI Bootstrap 1.0 and higher requires Angular 1.4.x or higher and it has been tested with Angular 1.4.8.
  • UI Bootstrap 0.14.3 is the last version that supports Angular 1.3.x.
  • UI Bootstrap 0.12.0 is the last version that supports Angular 1.2.x.

Bootstrap Requirements

  • UI Bootstrap requires Bootstrap CSS version 3.x or higher and it has been tested with Bootstrap CSS 3.3.6.
  • UI Bootstrap 0.8 is the last version that supports Bootstrap CSS 2.3.x.

Install with NPM

$ npm install angular-ui-bootstrap
This will install AngularJS and Bootstrap NPM packages.

Install with Bower

$ bower install angular-bootstrap
Note: do not install 'angular-ui-bootstrap'. A separate repository - bootstrap-bower - hosts the compiled javascript file and bower.json.

Install with NuGet

To install AngularJS UI Bootstrap, run the following command in the Package Manager Console
PM> Install-Package Angular.UI.Bootstrap

Custom build

Head over to and hit the Custom build button to create your own custom UI Bootstrap build, just the way you like it.

Manual download

After downloading dependencies (or better yet, referencing them from your favorite CDN) you need to download build version of this project. All the files and their purposes are described here: Don't worry, if you are not sure which file to take, opt for ui-bootstrap-tpls-[version].min.js.

Adding dependency to your project

When you are done downloading all the dependencies and project files the only remaining part is to add dependencies on the ui.bootstrap AngularJS module:
angular.module('myModule', ['ui.bootstrap']);

Webpack / JSPM

To use this project with webpack, follow the NPM instructions. Now, if you want to use only the accordion, you can do:
import accordion from 'angular-ui-bootstrap/src/accordion';

angular.module('myModule', [accordion]);
You can import all the pieces you need in the same way:
import accordion from 'angular-ui-bootstrap/src/accordion';
import datepicker from 'angular-ui-bootstrap/src/datepicker';

angular.module('myModule', [accordion, datepicker]);
This will load all the dependencies (if any) and also the templates (if any).
Be sure to have a loader able to process css files like css-loader.
If you would prefer not to load your css through your JavaScript file loader/bundler, you can choose to import the index-nocss.js file instead, which is available for the modules:
  • carousel
  • datepicker
  • datepickerPopup
  • dropdown
  • modal
  • popover
  • position
  • timepicker
  • tooltip
  • typeahead
The other modules, such as accordion in the example below, do not have CSS resources to load, so you should continue to import them as normal:
import accordion from 'angular-ui-bootstrap/src/accordion';
import typeahead from 'angular-ui-bootstrap/src/typeahead/index-nocss.js';

angular.module('myModule', [accordion, datepicker]);


Pre-2.0.0 does not follow a particular versioning system. 2.0.0 and onwards follows semantic versioning. All release changes can be viewed on our changelog.
