Appearance configuration

Firework video player allows limited appearance configuration.


Player color theme can be set by using theme attribute. Each theme can be additionally customized by CSS variables.

Currently available themes are:

  • light

  • dark (default)

  • preferred (alternates between light and dark based on user's OS preference)


<fw-storyblock channel="firework" theme="light"></fw-storyblock>

Custom UI icons

Certain UI elements can be configured from external sources by providing their public url location. This includes button icons and reaction animation (Firework uses Lottie player).

SVG images will be injected into player DOM so they have access to currentColor variable and are properly colored based on theme. SVG images location has to comply with CORS policy against your origin. Other image types are rendered as background images, can't use theme color and don't require special treatment.
