Basic Usage

Render a Template

Renders a partial template from the template roots.

{% render 'footer.liquid' %}

When the extname option is set, the above .liquid extension can be omitted and writes:

{% render 'footer' %}
Variable Scope

When a partial template is rendered, the code inside it can’t access its parent’s variables and its variables won’t be accessible by its parent. This encapsulation helps make theme code easier to understand and maintain.

Passing Variables

Variables defined in parent’s scope can be passed to a the partial template by listing them as parameters on the render tag:

{% assign my_variable = 'apples' %}
{% render 'name', my_variable: my_variable, my_other_variable: 'oranges' %}

globals don’t need to be passed down. They are accessible from all files.


The with Parameter

A single object can be passed to a snippet by using the syntax:

{% assign featured_product = all_products['product_handle'] %}
{% render 'product' with featured_product as product %}

In the example above, the product variable in the partial template will hold the value of featured_product in the parent template.

The for Parameter

A partial template can be rendered once for each value of an enumerable by using the syntax:

{% assign variants = product.variants %}
{% render 'variant' for variants as variant %}

In the example above, the partial template will be rendered once for each variant of the product, and the variant variable will hold a product’s variant object within the snippet.

The forloop object

When using the for parameter, the forloop object is accessible within the snippet.
