Text
Text component - Abyssale REST API

Available properties:

Property
Description
background_color
Same as color, but allows to add a background behind the text
font_size
Number. Force font size in pixels (must be > 1)
font font_weight
line_height
Number. Force line height in percentage (must be > 1). This parameter is only applied when the text is a multiline one.
skew_y
Number: between -20 and 20. Slant text on the y axis
stroke_width stroke_color
shadow_color shadow_blur shadow_offset_x shadow_offset_y
Example of a decorated text:
"payload": "Lorem i<c=#ff0000><u>p</u></c>su<s>m</s> is simply <c=#1A47FF>dummy</c> <u>text</u>" "color": "#ffffff" "background_color": "#8A4F4F" "background_padding": "2 6" "skew_y": -4 "alignment": "middle center" "font_size": 30 "line_height": 150 "shadow_color": "#00000080" "shadow_blur": 3 "shadow_offset_x": 0 "shadow_offset_y": 6

Color

color: The text color, can be a monochrome (6-8 digits hexa color) or a gradient (Go to Linear Gradient documentation).
Examples:
"color": "#1A47FF"
"color": "linear-gradient(0% 0% 100% 0%,0% #0a68ff 1,100% #ff0000 1)"

Payload

payload is the text content.
Constraints:
  • Cannot be empty
  • 2048 characters maximum

Line breaks

By default, line breaks are automatically computed from the available space.
You can however force line breaks by adding \n.
Beware of external integrations (Zapier, Integromat, Airtable): as they support multi text line inputs this parameter won't be interpreted on the Abyssale generation side.
Example:
"payload": "Lorem Ipsum\nis simply dummy text"

Partial Text Decorations

Text markups can be added to underline, colorise, strike of change font weight on specific part of the payload. (it resembles html markup but is not)
Text markups will override global text decoration settings. If you only want to change the global text style, do not use markups -> use global text properties.
Available markups:
You can find examples below.
Type
Markup
Color
<c={hexaColor}>my colored part</c>
Font weight
<w={weight}>my colored part</w> {weight}: Integer representing the font weight (100 to 900): thin (100), normal (400), bold (700), heavy (900)). If the font does not support the given weight, it fallbacks to the current weight.
Underline
<u>my underline part</u>
Underline with colored line
<u={hexaColor}>my colored underline part</u>
Strike through
<s>my strikethrough part</s>
Strike through with colored strike
<s={hexaColor}>my colored strike part</s>
Background color
<bg={hexaColor}>Text with bg color</bg> The padding around the background is controlled on the whole element (by using the background_padding property)
All of those markups can be combined.
It works like HTML. You have to pay attention on how you write your opening & closing tags.
Examples:
<c=#FF0000>Lorem Ipsum</c> is simply dummy text
<w=900>Lorem Ipsum</w> is simply dummy text
<u>Lorem Ipsum</u> is simply dummy text
<u=#FF0000>Lorem Ipsum</u> is simply dummy text
<s>Lorem Ipsum</s> is simply dummy text
<s=#FF0000>Lorem Ipsum</s> is simply dummy text
<bg=#f6aeb8>Lorem Ipsum</bg> is simply dummy text
<c=#243659><w=900><u=#1A47FF>Lorem Ipsum</u></w></c> is simply <s>dummy</s> text

Background padding

background_padding: The padding of the background color around the text.
  • String: Two numbers separated by a space: First number represents the vertical padding in pixels & the second the vertical padding. For instance: 0 10 : 0 as vertical padding & 10 as horizontal
  • or 1 Number: Horizontal & vertical paddings in pixels
This parameter will only be used if a background color is defined.
Examples:
"background_padding": "0 10"
"background_padding": "5 10"

Stroke

A stroke can be added to text. In order to customise it, 2 properties are available:
If your template does not contain any stroke, those 2 properties are required to have a stroke (and the width must be > 0).
Example:
stroke_width: 8 stroke_color: "#1A47FF"

Text Alignment

alignment can be defined to override the default text alignment.
The text position will then be computed from the text bounding box defined within the template.
It can be of two forms:
  • One string: top, middle, bottom, left, center, right
  • Two strings: One vertical alignment parameter (top, middle, bottom) associated with a horizontal alignment parameter (left, center, right) separated by a space. i.e: (top left , middle right)
Examples:
"alignment": "center"
"alignment": "right"

Font

The default font can be overridden with the font and font_weight properties:
  • font: String. Force a specific font by ID. The fonts list is available by calling the GET /fonts API route.
  • font_weight: Number. Force a font weight. Available values: 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900
If the font does not contain a font weight, the nearest weight will be used.
Examples:
Podkova font (Medium):
font: "6156872a-33c5-11ea-9877-92672c1b8195" font_weight: 500
Poppins font (Extra Bold):
font: "6156907e-33c5-11ea-9877-92672c1b8195" font_weight: 800
