Comment on page


The majority of components come from our open-source package "Petal Components". However, there are some only in Petal Pro. These have been put into a new private package called "Petal Framework". We are slowly adding the Petal Framework component docs to the website. Ultimately, will house all docs related to components, and these guides will more tailored to Petal Pro core functionality.


Docs are on


Color scheme switch

<.color_scheme_switch />
The switch to switch between light and dark mode.
Note that for this to work you also need to add this to your <head> . This is installed by default in Petal Pro.
# in your <head>:
<.color_scheme_switch_js />

Email helpers

A set of components for email templates. Kind of like Petal Components, but for emails.
Example usage:
<h1>Let's verify your account</h1>
<p>Touch the button below to verify your account</p>
<EmailComponents.button_centered to={@url}>
Verify account
If you didn't create an account with us, please ignore this.
To see them all run this from within your directory:
code deps/petal_framework/lib/petal_framework/web/components/email_components.ex
If you want to add your own components, you can create a new file:
touch /lib/petal_pro_web/components/email_components.ex
Then add your components:
defmodule PetalPro.Components.EmailComponents do
use Phoenix.Component
def my_new_component(assigns) do
Your component HTML goes here
Then in lib/petal_pro_web/views/email_view.ex you can either alias it or import it. Since it has the same name as the PetalFramework module, you can't alias it unless you change the name away from EmailComponents.
Importing makes it more easily callable, but it can be confusing if you don't know where the function came from. We'll leave that decision up to you.
defmodule PetalProWeb.EmailView do
use PetalProWeb, :view
alias PetalFramework.Components.EmailComponents
# Import your components:
import PetalPro.Components.EmailComponents
Now it'll be available in your email templates!
<h1>Let's verify your account</h1>
<.my_new_component />
