Generators & Page Builder

Generators

mix petal.gen.live

This produces the same files as Phoenix's mix phx.gen.live (docs). The only difference is that the templates use Tailwind and Petal Components. You can try it out with:
mix petal.gen.live Todos Todo todos label:string is_done:boolean
Add the routes from the output.
If you're wondering where to put the routes, you can search in the router file for the text "page_builder:live:protected", and add them straight after that line.
def PetalProWeb.Router do
...
​
scope "/", PetalProWeb do
pipe_through [
:browser,
:require_authenticated_user,
:kick_user_if_suspended_or_deleted,
:onboard_new_users
]
live_session :require_authenticated_user,
on_mount: {PetalProWeb.UserOnMountHooks, :require_authenticated_user} do
...
# page_builder:live:protected
live "/todos", TodoLive.Index, :index
live "/todos/new", TodoLive.Index, :new
live "/todos/:id/edit", TodoLive.Index, :edit
live "/todos/:id", TodoLive.Show, :show
live "/todos/:id/show/edit", TodoLive.Show, :edit
end
end
...
end

mix petal.gen.html

Same file output as phx.gen.html (docs), but uses Petal Components and a layout from Pro.
Example:
mix petal.gen.html Todos Todo todos label:string is_done:boolean

Page Builder

mix petal.gen.html

The same as phx.gen.html but designed for Petal Pro.

Page Builder

Usually, when you want to create a new page, you would have to create a new template file or live view file. Then you would create a route and point it either to the template's corresponding controller action, or directly to the live view.
To skip these steps, we made it so if you navigate to a path with no route on it then it will show what we call "The Page Builder" πŸ‘. The Page Builder is simply a form that helps you construct a page at that route. Submitting the form will result in the route being automatically added to the router.ex file and either a template or live view file is created for you.
