<mat-form-field>
    <input matInput
        placeholder="Choose a date"
        [satDatepicker]="picker"
        [value]="date">
    <sat-datepicker #picker [rangeMode]="true"></sat-datepicker>
    <sat-datepicker-toggle matSuffix [for]="picker"></sat-datepicker-toggle>
  </mat-form-field>

  • If you are using SCSS (preferable):
@import '~saturn-datepicker/theming';
@include sat-datepicker-theme($theme); # material theme data structure https://material.angular.io/guide/theming#defining-a-custom-theme
