Add Elements

Below please find a list of all the Elements in the Card Designer:

Dashboard echo

This will show the raw JSON input on the Card for testing purposes.

Dashboard Echo

Liquid List

For Micro apps: Shows lists

Displays a link at the bottom of the Card along with a toggle switch to trigger expansion or collapsing of the Card.

Card Footer

If you enable the 'expandable' attribute users will see a chevron that allows them to reveal more content. Such content should be wrapped inside a <div class="expanded-only"> which will hide the content until the user expands the Card.

Folder Explorer

For Micro apps: Shows a list of documents and folders on a page which can be opened or searched.

Liquid View

Central to showing structured data outputs using Liquid as templating language for formatting and conditions.

Liquid View

Building your Card

Making a Card with the Liquid View element is easy:

  1. Use the Layout templates to lay out the basic structure of your Card.
  2. Start a loop with Liquid, for example if you have an array in your JSON called 'items' you could open the loop with {% for item in items %}.
  3. Place parsing tags within your layout, for example if you want to parse the string value of phone_number you could write {{item.phone_number}} and it will parse all phone numbers from the items in your array.
  4. Close the loop with {% endfor %}.

Please see the Building Cards tutorial to learn how to make completely new Cards for Now Assistant.
