Changes to *.html files

The templates have undergone a set of changes to make them future-proof. If you've used theme extension to override a block or template, make sure that it matches the new structure:

  • If you've overridden a block, check base.html for potential changes
  • If you've overridden a template, check the respective *.html file for potential changes

Upgrading from 5.x to 6.x

What's new?

  • Improved search result look and feel
  • Improved search result stability while typing
  • Improved search result grouping (pages + headings)
  • Improved search result relevance and scoring
  • Added display of missing query terms to search results
  • Reduced size of vendor bundle by 25% (84kb → 67kb)
  • Reduced size of the Docker image to improve CI build performance
  • Removed hero partial in favor of custom implementation
  • Removed deprecated front matter features

Changes to mkdocs.yml

Following is a list of changes that need to be made to mkdocs.yml. Note that you only have to adjust the value if you defined it, so if your configuration does not contain the key, you can skip it.

theme.features

All feature flags that can be set from mkdocs.yml, like tabs and instant loading, are now prefixed with the name of the component or function they apply to, e.g. navigation.*:

theme:
  features:
    - navigation.tabs
    - navigation.instant
theme:
  features:
    - tabs
    - instant

Upgrading from 4.x to 5.x

What's new?

  • Reactive architecture – try app.dialog$.next("Hi!") in the console
  • Instant loading – make Material behave like a Single Page Application
  • Improved CSS customization with CSS variables – set your brand's colors
  • Improved CSS resilience, e.g. proper sidebar locking for customized headers
  • Improved icon integration and configuration – now including over 5k icons
  • Added possibility to use any icon for logo, repository and social links
  • Search UI does not freeze anymore (moved to web worker)
  • Search index built only once when using instant loading
  • Improved extensible keyboard handling
  • Support for prebuilt search indexes
  • Support for displaying stars and forks for GitLab repositories
  • Support for scroll snapping of sidebars and search results
  • Reduced HTML and CSS footprint due to deprecation of Internet Explorer support
  • Slight facelifting of some UI elements (Admonitions, tables, ...)

Changes to mkdocs.yml

Following is a list of changes that need to be made to mkdocs.yml. Note that you only have to adjust the value if you defined it, so if your configuration does not contain the key, you can skip it.

theme.feature

Optional features like tabs and instant loading are now implemented as flags and can be enabled by listing them in mkdocs.yml under theme.features:

theme:
  features:
    - tabs
    - instant
theme:
  feature:
    tabs: true

theme.logo.icon

The logo icon configuration was centralized under theme.icon.logo and can now be set to any of the icons bundled with the theme:

theme:
  icon:
    logo: material/cloud
theme:
  logo:
    icon: cloud

extra.repo_icon

The repo icon configuration was centralized under theme.icon.repo and can now be set to any of the icons bundled with the theme:

theme:
  icon:
    repo: fontawesome/brands/gitlab
extra:
  repo_icon: gitlab

extra.search.*

Search is now configured as part of the plugin options. Note that the search languages must now be listed as an array of strings and the tokenizer was renamed to separator:

plugins:
  - search:
      separator: '[\s\-\.]+'
      lang:
        - en
        - de
        - ru
extra:
  search:
    language: en, de, ru
    tokenizer: '[\s\-\.]+'

extra.social.*

Social links stayed in the same place, but the type key was renamed to icon in order to match the new way of specifying which icon to be used:

extra:
  social:
    - icon: fontawesome/brands/github-alt
      link: https://github.com/squidfunk
extra:
  social:
    - type: github
      link: https://github.com/squidfunk

Changes to *.html files

The templates have undergone a set of changes to make them future-proof. If you've used theme extension to override a block or template, make sure that it matches the new structure:

  • If you've overridden a block, check base.html for potential changes
  • If you've overridden a template, check the respective *.html file for potential changes

Upgrading from 3.x to 4.x

What's new?

Material for MkDocs 4 fixes incorrect layout on Chinese systems. The fix includes a mandatory change of the base font-size from 10px to 20px which means all rem values needed to be updated. Within the theme, px to rem calculation is now encapsulated in a new function called px2rem which is part of the SASS code base.

If you use Material for MkDocs with custom CSS that is based on rem values, note that those values must now be divided by 2. Now, 1.0rem doesn't map to 10px, but 20px. To learn more about the problem and implications, please refer to #911 in which the problem was discovered and fixed.

Changes to mkdocs.yml

None.

Changes to *.html files
