  • Angular v7.x (requires Angular 2 or higher) - Angular V7 - Material V6 are now supported

Requirements (peer dependencies):

npm i @angular/cdk @angular/material @angular/flex-layout @angular/animations @angular/forms 

Additional requirements Theme (Material Design)

Additional Requirements - Import the material design icons learn more

  • The easiest way to import material design icons is to provide a link in your index.html file like below:
<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/icon?family=Material+Icons" rel="stylesheet">
  • alternative solution:
  1. Install of the official npm module of the material design icons
npm i -s material-design-icons
  1. Import them in your angular.json file
"styles": [


Install above dependencies via npm.

Now install @angular-material-extensions/faq via:

npm install -s @angular-material-extensions/faq


Note:If you are using SystemJS, you should adjust your configuration to point to the UMD bundle. In your systemjs config file, map needs to tell the System loader where to look for @angular-material-extensions/faq:

map: {
  '@angular-material-extensions/faq': 'node_modules/@angular-material-extensions/faq/bundles/faq.umd.js',

Once installed you need to import the main module:

import { MatFaqModule } from '@angular-material-extensions/faq';

The only remaining part is to list the imported module in your application module. The exact method will be slightly different for the root (top-level) module for which you should end up with the code similar to (notice MatFaqModule .forRoot()):

import { MatFaqModule } from '@angular-material-extensions/faq';

  declarations: [AppComponent, ...],
  imports: [MatFaqModule.forRoot(), ...],  
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule {

Other modules in your application can simply import MatFaqModule:

import { MatFaqModule } from '@angular-material-extensions/faq';

  declarations: [OtherComponent, ...],
  imports: [MatFaqModule, ...], 
export class OtherModule {



add the mat-faq or the mat-faq-admin element to your template:


This component aims to list the provided frequently asked questions

<mat-faq [faqList]="list"></mat-faq>
import {Component, OnInit, ViewEncapsulation} from '@angular/core';
import {FaqItem} from '@angular-material-extensions/faq';

export class HomeComponent implements OnInit {
    ngOnInit() {

  list: FaqItem[] = [
          question: 'Why does it think the jQuery plugin is missing?',
          answer: 'Remember: load jQuery before AngularJS if you are using jQuery plugins!'
          question: 'How do I access the DOM from a controller?',
          answer: 'DO NOT perform DOM selection/traversal from the controller. The HTML hasn\'t rendered yet. Look up \'directives\'.'


This component is actually for admin purposes, like to add a frequently asked question to the backend, firebase ... and so on..

<mat-faq-admin [title]="'Admin'" (onFAQItemAdded)="onNewFaqItem($event)"></mat-faq-admin>

in your component

import {Component, OnInit, ViewEncapsulation} from '@angular/core';
import {FaqItem} from '@angular-material-extensions/faq';

export class HomeComponent implements OnInit {
   ngOnInit() {

  faq: FaqItem[] = [];
  onNewFaqItem(faqItem: FaqItem) {
      console.log('on new faqItem -> ', faqItem);
      this.faq.splice(0, 0, faqItem);
