Typography

Overview

Airplane provides the following components for typesetting UI in your views:
  1. Text
  2. Label
  3. Title

Text

Text is the primary component for rendering text in Views.
Text provides several props to control the appearance and size of the text, which help keep the text in your views consistent. Text also automatically adds spacing between paragraphs to improve readability. By default, Text automatically parses Markdown text if a Markdown string is passed to it.

Label

Label is like Text but without any additional spacing and without Markdown support. Use Label when you want to render text that is not intended to be read as a paragraph. For example, you may want to use Label to render a label for a custom form field.

Title

Title renders headings for your views. The Title component's order prop can be an integer 1 to 6 that corresponds to the <h1> to <h6> HTML elements.
Note that Title components can be nested inside a Text component. This is particularly desirable if you want to group certain titles with a body of text.

Example usage

Text component API

NameDescriptionDefault
width
number | "content" | "auto" | `${number}%` | `${number}/${number}` | { xs?: ColWidth; sm?: ColWidth; md?: ColWidth; lg?: ColWidth; xl?: ColWidth; }
Width of the component. This component must be a direct child of a <Stack> for this prop to take effect. If an integer is specified, signifies the width in a 12 item grid. 12 means that the component takes up the entire row, 6 is half, 1 is 1/12. If a decimal or fraction is specified, signifies the fractional share of the row. e.g. 1/2 takes up half of the row. If a percentage is specified, signifies the percentage share of the row. e.g. "50%" takes up half of the row. content indicates that the component should take up as much space as its content. auto indicates that the component should take any leftover space on the row. To set width based on the screen size, use an object with a specific width for each breakpoint. e.g. {xs: "100%", md: "50%"} sets the width on xs-md screens to 100% and md and larger screens to 50%.
content
offset
number | `${number}%` | `${number}/${number}` | { xs?: ColOffset; sm?: ColOffset; md?: ColOffset; lg?: ColOffset; xl?: ColOffset; }
Creates a gap to the left of the component. Has the same units as width. This component must be a direct child of a <Stack> for this prop to take effect. If an integer is specified, signifies the offset in a 12 item grid. 6 means the component is offset by half a row, 1 is 1/12 of a row. If a decimal or fraction is specified, signifies the fractional share of the row. e.g. 1/2 offsets a component by half of the row. If a percentage is specified, signifies the percentage share of the row. e.g. "50%" offsets a component by half of the row. To set offset based on the screen size, use an object with a specific offset for each breakpoint. e.g. {xs: "50%", md: "0%"} sets the offset on xs-md screens to 50% and md and larger screens to 0%.
