Add labels and hints to an input control.

  • Provides named slots to add hints around a standard input control
  • Easily styled with CSS variables and mixins.


$ bower install -S arsnebula/nebula-inputbox

Getting Started

Import the element:

<link rel="import" href="/bower_components/nebula-inputbox/nebula-inputbox.html">

Add the element. The main input slot should contain a normal HTML input control. Add hints such as labels, icons and help or validation text around the input control, using the top, left, right and bottom named slots.

  <input slot="input" id="email" name="email" type="text" autocomplete="off" />
  <label slot="top" for="email">Email</label>
  <iron-icon icon="icons:mail" slot="left"></iron-icon>
  <iron-icon icon="icons:search" slot="right"></iron-icon>
  <div slot="bottom">An email for account verification</div>

You can easily theme the element using slot and other attributes.

nebula-inputbox[focused] {
  color: teal;
nebula-inputbox[invalid][slot=bottom] {
  color: darkred;
