CSS white labeling

Anvil Workflows and e-signature packets can be styled to match your brand. By providing a custom CSS stylesheet, you can completely control the look and feel of your Workflows or e-signature packets.

We support 2 methods of white labeling:

  1. CSS variables: The easiest way to style your Workflow or packet. We have a set of CSS variables that you can override to change nearly all relevant styles. This method is the easiest way to get started with white labeling.
  2. anvil-* CSS classes: For more granular control, you can use our anvil-* CSS classes to style individual elements. We have a set of classes you can target in your stylesheet so you can directly style specific elements.

In some cases you can combine both methods to style your Workflow or e-signature packet to achieve a quicker and more effective stylesheet.

White labeling with custom stylesheets is a Custom plan feature. To learn more, please visit the pricing page.

Workflow white labeling

This guide will walk you through the process of white labeling a Workflow. We will use Anvil's white labeling system to style a Workflow to match your brand.

Let's take the Sample Workflow as an example. Here's a screenshot of the Sample Workflow, unstyled:

Anvil's default styling for a WorkflowAnvil's default styling for a Workflow - this is what you get out of the box

And here's a screenshot of the Sample Workflow, styled with the Material theme stylesheet that we will build in this guide:

Fully styled WorkflowFully styled Workflow with Material theme

To style your Workflow, we will follow these steps:

  1. Enable white labeling for your organization. White labeling with custom stylesheets is a Custom plan feature. To learn more, please visit the pricing page.
  2. Create a custom stylesheet for your Workflow. It needs to be hosted on a publicly accessible URL.
    • For testing purposes, we recommend using a service like ngrok Secure Tunnels. This guide will go over how to use ngrok to test your custom stylesheet.
  3. Apply the custom stylesheet to your Workflow or organization.
  4. Develop, test, and iterate on your custom stylesheet until you are happy with the result.
  5. Publish your Workflow with the custom stylesheet.
    • If you used ngrok for testing, you will need to update the custom stylesheet URL to a publicly accessible URL.

Using ngrok for testing

While developing your stylesheet, it is helpful to have an immediate feedback loop. You can use ngrok Secure Tunnels to quickly test your custom stylesheet from your local machine.

  1. Download and install ngrok from the ngrok download page.
    • If you are a Mac and homebrew user, you can run: brew install --cask ngrok.
  2. Set up a local server to serve your custom stylesheet.
    • You can use create-react-app to quickly set up a local server. Put your custom stylesheet in the public folder, e.g. public/styles.css.
  3. Start a new ngrok tunnel by running ngrok http 3000 in your terminal. Replace 3000 with the port that your stylesheet is is running on.
    • If you are using create-react-app, the default port is 3000.
  4. Copy the Forwarding URL from the ngrok terminal output. It will look something like: https://1234abcd.ngrok.app.
  5. Set the custom stylesheet URL in your Workflow settings or org settings to the ngrok URL.
    • With the create-react-app example, the custom stylesheet URL would be https://1234abcd.ngrok.app/styles.css.

Enabling Workflow white labeling

You can specify a custom stylesheet injected into your Workflow from the Worfklow settings. This stylesheet can be served from your website giving you full control over the custom styles.

White labeling with custom stylesheets is a Custom plan feature. To learn more, please visit the pricing page.

Once enabled for your organization, you can set a custom stylesheet URL on a per-Workflow basis in each Workflow's settings:

white label custom stylesheetIndividual Workflow settings with custom stylesheet URL

You can also set a default stylesheet URL for your organization in the organization settings. This stylesheet is overrideable on a per-Workflow basis, so you can have a default stylesheet for all Workflows and then override it for specific Workflows.

Org settings stylesheetOrganization settings with custom stylesheet URL

Using CSS variables and anvil-* classes

Now that you have a custom stylesheet URL set for your Workflow, you can start styling your Workflow. We have a set of CSS variables and anvil-* classes that you can use to style your Workflow.

The primary way to style your Workflow is through root CSS variables. Let's add the root variables for colors to your stylesheet:

:root {
/******** root colors - sets defaults for everything else that are overrideable ********/
--root-black-color: #222;
--root-white-color: #fff;
--root-background: var(--root-white-color);
--root-text-color: var(--root-black-color);
--root-brand-color: #6002ee;
--root-brand-color-10: #b794f6;
--root-brand-color-20: #efe5fd;
--root-green-color: #2ed27c;
--root-green-color-10: rgba(46, 210, 124, 0.4);
--root-error-color: #e55252;
--root-link-color: #0185a2;
--root-link-hover-color: #00a298;
}
12 root variables for colors that will cascade down to other components

Each of the above --root-* variables are fully supported to cascade down to other components. While not required, it is recommended to use --root-black-color and --root-white-color as the values for --root-text-color and --root-background, respectively. This will ensure that your Workflow has a light background and dark text color.

Only root colors appliedOnly root colors applied to the Sample Workflow

By adding root colors, we have a Workflow that is mostly styled. Before we get into specific components, like buttons, let's set the last few root variables:

:root {
/******** root colors - sets defaults for everything else that are overrideable ********/
--root-black-color: #222;
--root-white-color: #fff;
--root-background: var(--root-white-color);
--root-text-color: var(--root-black-color);
--root-brand-color: #6002ee;
--root-brand-color-10: #b794f6;
--root-brand-color-20: #efe5fd;
--root-green-color: #2ed27c;
--root-green-color-10: rgba(46, 210, 124, 0.4);
--root-error-color: #e55252;
--root-link-color: #0185a2;
--root-link-hover-color: #00a298;
/* NEW */
/******** root typography ********/
--root-font-family: 'Roboto', sans-serif;
--root-font-weight: 300;
/* --root-title-display: none; // this is if we only wanted page titles to show */
}

Sweet, font-family and a slightly thinner font-weight are set. Let's move on to webform pages, buttons, fields to make it pop more.

Webform pages, buttons and fields

After the root variables, the most common components to style are buttons and fields. Webform page components are also highly visible out of the gate.

Let's add some variables for all 3:

:root {
/* root variables here */
/******** webform-specific ********/
--webform-title-font-weight: 500;
--webform-title-font-style: normal;
--webform-title-font-size: 32px;
--webform-page-title-font-weight: 300;
--webform-page-title-font-style: normal;
--webform-page-title-font-size: 28px;
/******** buttons ********/
--button-border-radius: 8px;
--button-disabled-background: #f5f5f5;
--button-disabled-color: #d9d9d9;
/******** fields ********/
--field-label-font-weight: 300;
--field-error-box-shadow: none;
--field-error-background: transparent;
/******** field inputs ********/
--field-input-background-color: transparent;
--field-input-border: none;
--field-input-border-bottom: 2px solid rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1);
--field-input-focus-box-shadow: none;
--field-input-padding-x: 0;
}
Variables for webform pages, buttons and fields for the Material theme

It is recommended to still apply non --root-* variables to the CSS :root selector. This will ensure that the variables cascade down to all other components. And keep your CSS variables in one spot. You can apply these CSS variables to a class declaration to scope the styles to a specific class/component, but it is not widely used.

You'll notice in the above example there are field-* variables and field-input-* variables. The field-input-* variables correspond only to the input part of a field, not the label or description. This allows you to style the input part of a field; all other aspects of the field, like the label, description, and error messages, will be styled by the field-* variables.

Let's see our Workflow now:

Mostly styled WorkflowA mostly styled Workflow with Material theme

The mostly styled Workflow looks... identical to the fully styled Workflow. With ~30 CSS variables, the looks and feel of the Workflow can be completely changed.

There are a few more CSS variables used in the Material theme, but we will end here as the process is the same for each supported CSS variable.

If you need more direct control, you can use the anvil-* classes to apply CSS to HTML elements. Here's an example of how to move the error label on fields below the field, using class selectors:

.ant-form-item-has-error
.anvil-field-content-container
.anvil-field-help-label {
order: 2;
position: relative;
margin-top: 6px;
text-align: left;
padding-left: 0;
padding-right: 0;
}
Move the error label below the field

The CSS example above uses .ant-form-item-has-error to target fields with errors. While anvil-* classes are the only officially supported classes, you can use Ant Design classes (ant-*) to target specific elements. If we stop using ant-* classes, we will update this guide and provide a migration path.

E-signature packet white labeling

We currently do not have a dedicated guide for white labeling e-signature packets, but the process is identical to Workflow white labeling.

The one major difference is where you specify the custom stylesheet URL. Instead of setting the custom stylesheet URL in the Workflow settings, you will set it during a call the createEtchPacket GraphQL mutation. See the options passed to the createEtchPacket mutation in the Etch documentation.

You can use the same CSS variables and anvil-* classes to style your e-signature packet.

Prebuilt themes

We have a few prebuilt themes that you can use to quickly style your Workflows or e-signature packets. These themes are a great starting point for your custom stylesheet.

You can find the themes in the Anvil Themes repository.

Material theme

The Material theme uses Google's Material Design system as inspiration. It's a great starting point for a modern, clean look.

Here's a couple screenshots of the Sample Workflow, styled with the Material theme:

Material theme beginning of WorkflowThe top of a Workflow styled with the Material themeMaterial theme end of WorkflowThe bottom of a Workflow styled with the Material theme, where your users will submit Webforms or move to the next step

The Workflow white labeling guide will walk you through how to apply the Material theme to your Workflow.

CSS variables

The primary way to style your Workflows or e-signature packets is through CSS variables. We have a set of CSS variables that you can override to change nearly all relevant styles, including pseudo states.

Each variable follows this format:

--<componentName>-<optional>-<optional>-...-<property>

The componentName is the name of the component you are targeting. The optional parts are either subcomponents or specific states the component may be in, like hover or disabled. The property is the CSS property you are targeting.

--root-*

These root variables will allow you to set the base styles for your Workflow or e-signature packet. These variables will cascade down to other components.

You should have a mostly styled Workflow or e-signature packet by setting these variables alone. Start here and then move on to more specific components after getting the base styles set.

  • --root-black-color: The color value to be used as 'black' in the Workflow or e-signature packet.
  • --root-white-color: The color value to be used as 'white' in the Workflow or e-signature packet.
  • --root-background: The background of the Workflow or e-signature packet. Should be a light color. Recommended to use --root-white-color.
  • --root-text-color: The text color of the Workflow or e-signature packet. Should be a high contrast color to the background. Recommended to use --root-black-color.
  • --root-brand-color: The brand color for the Workflow or e-signature packet. This color will be used for buttons and other primary elements.
  • --root-brand-color-10: The ~10-20% lighter version of the brand color. Used for hover states and other states.
  • --root-brand-color-20: The ~20-40% lighter version of the brand color. Used for active states and other states.
  • --root-error-color: The color of error messages in the Workflow or e-signature packet.

  • --root-font-family: The font family of the Workflow or e-signature packet.
  • --root-font-weight: The font weight of normal text in the Workflow or e-signature packet. Will cascade to titles, buttons, and other elements for other boldnesses.

anvil-* CSS classes

Every supported CSS white labeling class is prefixed with anvil-. While there may be other classes in the Anvil Workflow or e-signature packet, only classes prefixed with anvil- are officially supported for white labeling.

Each class follows this format:

anvil-<componentName>-<optional>-<optional>-...

The componentName is the name of the component you are targeting. The optional parts are additional descriptors that may be used to target specific elements within the component.

If you find an HTML element you need to target does not have a anvil-* class, please let us know! We are always looking to improve our white labeling support. If you need a quick fix, any element with a ant- class can be safely targeted. These selectors are not likely to change, and if they are, we will provide a migration path.
