Package Components and Decorators Documentation

Understanding the distinction between Components and Decorators within our package is crucial for maximizing the effectiveness of your web projects. Here’s a brief overview to get you started.

Components vs. Decorators

What is a Component?

A Component is an independent block that encapsulates a specific functionality or piece of UI, designed to be reusable across web applications. These are the fundamental building blocks for creating dynamic and interactive interfaces.

What is a Decorator?

A Decorator is a special component that wraps another component to enhance or modify its functionality without changing the core behavior. Decorators provide a dynamic way to extend component capabilities with additional features like animations, links, or positioning.

Components Overview

Each component in our package is crafted to fulfill specific UI needs, from displaying media to organizing content.

Responsive Media

Designed to display images, videos, and more, adapting seamlessly to any screen size for the best viewing experience.

Below is a recording demonstrating the usage of Responsive Media within different breakpoints. As the screen size changes, the displayed media adjusts accordingly.

  • Inputting 3D Models: To utilize the 3D Viewer component, users need to provide a 3D model in a compatible format, such as OBJ, STL, or glTF.

Decorators Overview

Decorators wrap around components to provide additional functionalities, from animations to custom interactivity.


Brings elements to life with engaging animations, perfect for scroll-triggered effects and adding motion to your site. The Animation decorator encapsulates an item and adds a GSAP Animation to it. It utilizes a JSON object to determine the type of animation to be played.

  • Engaging Animations: Users can enhance their web pages with captivating animations that draw attention and create a dynamic user experience.
  • Scroll-Triggered Effects: The Animation decorator supports scroll-triggered animations, allowing elements to animate into view as the user scrolls down the page.
  • GSAP Integration: Leveraging the power of GSAP, the decorator offers a wide range of animation options and effects, enabling users to create fluid and visually appealing transitions.

For instance, an animation can be created to fade in <p> tags, transitioning them from transparent to opaque while simultaneously moving them downward by 200 pixels. Each <p> tag is introduced with a 0.5-second delay and is triggered based on scrolling.

            "y": 200,
            "opacity": 0,
            "stagger": 0.5,
            "duration": 0.5,
            "scrollTrigger": {
                "trigger": "",
                "toggleActions": "restart none restart none"


The feature allows users to designate any component as clickable, typically through a simple configuration or setting within the user interface.

Once enabled, users can interact with the designated component by clicking on it, regardless of its original purpose or appearance.


A layout tool that provides precise control over the positioning of elements, enabling customized arrangements within any space. With this tool, you can easily center, left-align, or right-align any component inside a flex box, ensuring flexible and responsive layouts tailored to your design needs.
