Available components and properties

  • root content-placeholders

    • Boolean animated (default: true)
    • Boolean rounded (default: false) - border radius
    • Boolean centered (default: false)

    properties from root component are automatically passed down to each one of yielded components, so they can be overriden whenever necessary per comoponent case

  • yield placeholder.heading

    • Boolean img (default: false)
  • yield placeholder.text

    • Number lines (default: 4)
  • yield placeholder.img

  • yield placeholder.nav


  • placeholder.list
  • placeholder.chart
  • placeholder.table


Composable components make it easy to form a required module, but sometimes it's not enough. If you'd like to also amend styling, there are few variables that can help you out:

  • $ember-content-placeholders-primary-color - heading background
  • $ember-content-placeholders-secondary-color - light background
  • $ember-content-placeholders-border-radius - border radius size when rounded property is true
  • $ember-content-placeholders-line-height - single line height
  • $ember-content-placeholders-spacing - distance between lines
