Formatting / Dynamic Content

How to format text and use variables to display dynamic content

There are various useful styling options available for Enveloop templates, sections and elements. Along with this, you'll want to have control over the basic formatting and use of text in your messages.

Using Markdown

So, while a "text" element can have color, padding, and alignment, you still want to describe your text for bold, italic, bullets (ordered / unordered lists), headings, etc. This is accomplished using Markdown.

The "Content" field for a text element allows you to inject markdown.

As you add markdown to your text, the viewer on the left will live-update to show you the formatting effects.

If you are not familiar with Markdown as a tool, we've included additional resources for Markdown in our docs so you can learn more. It's simple, and a bit fun, too. 😄

Dynamic Content

In addition to formatting your message content, providing dynamic or custom/personalized info to your users, from your app, is vital. Enveloop makes this super-easy.

Using Mustache, you can inject variables into your content with the use of curly-brackets. As you add in new variables to your content, Enveloop will automatically begin tracking them, providing you ways to test, updated code snippets, etc. This will be discussed in more detail in later sections.

If you are not familiar with Mustache syntax, we've included a guide as well as additional examples in our docs.
