Out of the box you get access to all colors in the Material Design specification through sass and javascript. These values can be used within your style sheets, your component files and on actual components via the color prop.


Each color from the specification gets converted to a background and text variant for styling within your application through a class, e.g. <div class="bg-red"> or <span class="text-red">. These class colors are defined here.


Text colors also support darken and lighten variants using text-{color}-{lighten|darken}-{n}


Javascript color pack

Vuetify has an optional javascript color pack that you can import and use within your application. This can also be used to help define your application’s theme.

import { createVuetify } from 'vuetify'

import colors from 'vuetify/lib/util/colors'

export default createVuetify({
  theme: {
    themes: {
      light: {
        dark: false,
        colors: {
          primary:, // #E53935
          secondary:, // #FFCDD2

Sass color pack

While convenient, the color pack increases the CSS export size by ~30kb. Some projects may only require the classes that are created at run-time from the Vuetify theme system. To disable the color pack feature, you will have to manually import and build the main sass file. This will require a Sass loader and a .sass/.scss file entry.

$color-pack: false;

@import '~vuetify/src/styles/main.sass';

Your created main.sass file will then need to be included in your project.

import './src/sass/main.scss'
// OR

This can also be done within your main App.vue file. Keep in mind, depending on your project setup, this will increase build times as every time your entry file is updated, the Sass files will be re-generated.

<style lang="sass">
  $color-pack: false;

  @import '~vuetify/src/styles/main.sass';
