#' Apply a curvature on text elements
#'
#' @param ui_element Text element on which the curvature should be applied. Must be something like `h1()`, `h2()`, etc. This element MUST have an id. Doesn't work on other HTML elements such as buttons.
#' @param dir Sets the text direction, must be equal to 1 (clockwise) or -1 (counter-clockwise).
#' @param radius Sets the desired text radius. The lower the value, the more curved the text.
#'
#' @return A curved text.
