What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Closing Thoughts & Reflection
Overall, it was an incredibly fun project to work on. I loved that the tool aids nonprofits in becoming more data-savy and therefore being able to cater to their communities in a more effective way.
Personally, having the creative freedom to explore the design of an open source project was so exciting since Pablo and the team did not have any strict branding guidelines that I had to stick to.
This project was also the first time that I used a formal process for user research and data analysis. It was definitely tricky at first to understand and implement but my mentor was able to guiding me in asking the right questions and supporting my efforts in conducting the research and insights.
You can play with the prototype here while the live page is still being built on the backend!
