What is the Spacer widget?

The Spacer widget allows you to add customizable empty spaces or gaps between different elements on your webpage. You can create a block of space anywhere on your page and then fill this block of space with a color or an image. 

Further, you can use it to create cool shapes and elements as well.

Common use case

Emma is a web designer building a website for a client who wants a modern and minimalist design for their online store. In one section of the homepage, Emma wants to showcase a series of product images with text descriptions underneath each one. Emma also wants to ensure enough space between each product to create a clean and organized layout.

To create this, Emma uses the Spacer widget. After placing the product images and text descriptions on the page, they add a spacer widget between each product element. By adjusting each spacer’s height, Emma ensures consistent spacing between the products, creating a visually appealing grid layout.

For more customization, Emma enabled the Mask feature in the Spacer widget, creating interactive shapes for enhanced visual appeal and user engagement.
