Text Style Props

href?: string

If specified, turns the text node into a link that navigates to the specified href on click.

fontFamily?: string

The font family (e.g. "Inter"). The supported fonts are all the fonts in the Google Fonts library.

letterSpacing?: number

The spacing between the individual characters.

textDecoration?: 'none' | 'strikethrough' | 'underline'

Whether the text is underlined or has a strikethrough.

fontSize?: number

The size of the font. Has minimum value of 1.

italic?: boolean

Whether or not to italicize the text content.

textCase?: 'upper' | 'lower' | 'title' | 'original' | 'small-caps' | 'small-caps-forced'

Overrides the case of the raw characters in the text node.

fontWeight?: FontWeight

The font weight eg. 400, 500 or 'medium', 'bold'.

fill?: HexCode | Color | Paint | (SolidPaint | GradientPaint)[]

The paints used to fill in the text.

paragraphIndent?: number

The indentation of paragraphs (offset of the first line from the left).

paragraphSpacing?: number

The vertical distance between paragraphs.

horizontalAlignText?: 'left' | 'right' | 'center' | 'justified'

The horizontal alignment of the text with respect to the Text node.

verticalAlignText?: 'top' | 'center' | 'bottom'

The vertical alignment of the text with respect to the Text node.

lineHeight?: number | string | 'auto'

The spacing between the lines in a paragraph of text.

stroke?: HexCode | Color | SolidPaint | GradientPaint | (SolidPaint | GradientPaint)[]

The paints used to fill the area of the node's stroke.

strokeWidth?: number

The thickness of the stroke, in pixels. This value must be non-negative and can be fractional.

strokeAlign?: StrokeAlign

The alignment of the stroke with respect to the boundaries of the node.

Center-aligned stroke means the center of the stroke falls exactly on the geometry. Inside-aligned stroke shifts the stroke so it lies completely inside the shape, and outside-aligned stroke is vice versa.


Inside and outside stroke are actually implemented by doubling the stroke weight and masking the stroke by the fill. This means inside-aligned stroke will never draw strokes outside the fill and outside-aligned stroke will never draw strokes inside the fill.


width?: AutolayoutSize

The width of the component.

height?: AutolayoutSize

The height of the component.

rotation?: number

The rotation of the node in degrees. Expects values from -180 to 180.

The rotation is with respect to the top-left of the object. Therefore, it is independent from the position of the object.


name?: string

The name of the component. This is useful to specify a data-layer attribute to make things more debuggable when you inspect the sublayers of your widget.

hidden?: boolean

Toggles whether to show the component.

onClick?: (event: WidgetClickEvent) => Promise<any> | void

Attach a click handler on the given node. If the given function is async or returns a promise, the widget is only terminated when the async function has completed and the promise has been resolved. The click handler is also passed a WidgetClickEvent object that contains additional information about the click.

key?: string | number

The key of the component.

hoverStyle?: HoverStyle

The style to be applied when the mouse is hovering over the component.

tooltip?: string

The tooltip that is shown to the user when hovering over the component.

positioning?: 'auto' | 'absolute'

This value is ignored unless the node is a direct child of an AutoLayout frame.

'auto'Layout this node according to auto-layout rules.
'absolute'Take this node out of the auto-layout flow, while still nesting it inside the auto-layout frame. This allows explicitly setting x, y, width, and height.


blendMode?: BlendMode

The blendMode of the component.

opacity?: number

The opacity of the component.

effect?: Effect | Effect[]

The effect of the component.


x?: number | HorizontalConstraint

The x position of the node.

This value is ignored if the node is a child of an AutoLayout frame and has positioning set to 'auto'.

y?: number | VerticalConstraint

The y position of the node.

This value is ignored if the node is a child of an AutoLayout frame and has positioning set to 'auto'.
