block_spacer {blastula}R Documentation

A spacer block

Description

With block_spacer() we can more easily define an area of whitespace in a block-based layout. This function is meant to be easily combined with other block_*() functions. Like all block_*() functions, block_spacer() must be placed inside of blocks() and the resultant blocks object can be provided to the body, header, or footer arguments of compose_email().

Usage

block_spacer()

Examples

# Create a block of two, side-by-side
# articles with two `article()` calls
# inside of `block_articles()`, itself
# placed in `blocks()`; include some
# introductory text and place extra
# space around that text (with
# `block_spacer()`)
email <-
  compose_email(
    body =
      blocks(
        block_spacer(),
        block_text(
          "These are two of the cities I visited this year.
          I liked them a lot, so, I'll visit them again!"),
        block_spacer(),
        block_articles(
          article(
            image = "https://i.imgur.com/dig0HQ2.jpg",
            title = "Los Angeles",
            content =
              "I want to live in Los Angeles.
              Not the one in Los Angeles.
              No, not the one in South California.
              They got one in South Patagonia."
          ),
          article(
            image = "https://i.imgur.com/RUvqHV8.jpg",
            title = "New York",

              "Start spreading the news.
              I'm leaving today.
              I want to be a part of it.
              New York, New York."
