This plugin is deprecated. Nunjucks is recommended as a replacement.


Liquid is a simple, expressive, and safe template engine. This plugin allows you to use it to create pages and layouts.


Import this plugin in your _config.ts file to use it:

import lume from "lume/mod.ts";
import liquid from "lume/plugins/liquid.ts";

const site = lume();

site.use(liquid(/* Options */));

export default site;

Creating layouts

Add a file with .liquid extension in the _includes directory. Use the front matter to set data for the template.

title: Welcome to my page
intro: This is my first post using Lume. I hope you like it!

    <title>{{ title }}</title>

    <p>{{ intro }}</p>

Creating pages

Creating pages is the same as creating layouts; just place the .liquid file outside the _includes directory.

liquid filter

The Liquid plugin also registers the liquid filter, to render any string value as a Liquid template and output HTML. The filter accepts an object with data.

  username: Oscar
text: "Hello {{ username }}"

<!-- Render a string -->
<div>{{ text | liquid: data }}<div>

Configure VSCode

You can use the Liquid extension for VS Code for syntax highlight and some useful snippets.

Liquid is deprecated

Liquidjs is a great library but it has a limitation incompatible with Lume: it's not possible to invoke functions. This is very unfortunate because it's not possible to use the search helper inside a liquid template to loop through the pages. For example, the following code doesn't work:

  {% for item in search.pages('post') %}
  {% endfor %}

Lume has support for Nunjucks which is a good replacement because has a very similar syntax to Liquid and allows you to run functions, I decided to deprecate the Liquid plugin. It will still be available in Lume 2 but probably be removed in Lume 3 (in the distant future).
