Quick Setup

Right to Left (RTL) version of Metronic can be easily setup with special Gulp and Webpack task that depends on Gulp RTLCSS  and RTLCSS  tools.

  1. Run gulp task with --rtlflag in theme/tools/folder to generate the RTL versions of CSS files.
    gulp --rtl
    For Webpack user, use below command.
    npm run build --rtl
  2. Switch CSS files to their RTL versions by adding *.rtl.csssuffix to files that have RTL versions generated in assets folder:
    <!--begin::Page Vendor Stylesheets(used by this page)-->
    <link href="assets/plugins/custom/prismjs/prismjs.bundle.rtl.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <!--end::Page Vendor Stylesheets-->
    <!--begin::Global Stylesheets Bundle(used by all pages)-->
    <link href="assets/plugins/global/plugins.bundle.rtl.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <link href="assets/css/style.bundle.rtl.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <!--end::Global Stylesheets Bundle-->
  3. Add the language direction attribute to the root HTML tag:
    <html direction="rtl" dir="rtl" style="direction: rtl">
  4. Plugins that come with their own RTL support can be skipped from the general RTL conversion by adding them into the skip list in the gulp config file as shown below:
    "compile": {
        "rtl": {
            "enabled": false,
            "skip": [
    For more info about the gulp config file please check - Gulp Build Options.
  5. Flip the KTMenu dropdown submenu alignment attributes as shown below:
    data-kt-menu-placement="bottom-start" => data-kt-menu-placement="bottom-end"
    data-kt-menu-placement="right-start" => data-kt-menu-placement="left-start"
