FormattedText type represents some text with markup applied to it. The goal of this library is to make working with such text as easy as working with strings.
You can create a FormattedText in a number of ways.
formattedTextto combine a string with some formatting ranges. Ranges are allowed to overlap.
fromStringto turn a string into an unformatted FormattedText.
unchunkto create a FormattedText from a list of chunks, pieces of text with homogeneous formatting.
Anything you can do with Strings you can do with FormattedText too, because this lib comes with equivalents of all functions from the core String and Regex modules.
The easiest way to render
FormattedText into Html is using the
trees function, which builds a markup tree from your
import FormattedText exposing (..) import Html exposing (Html) type Markup = Bold | Italic view : FormattedText Markup -> Html msg view formattedText = Html.p  (trees Html.text viewMarkup) viewMarkup : Markup -> List (Html msg) -> Html msg viewMarkup markup children = case markup of Bold -> Html.strong  children Italic -> Html.i  children
