Template Languages:

Eleventy Short Name File Extension NPM Package
liquid .liquid liquidjs

You can override a .liquid file’s template engine. Read more at Changing a Template’s Rendering Engine.

Library Options #

Defaults #

Rather than constantly fixing outdated documentation, find getLiquidOptions in Liquid.js. These options are different than the default liquidjs options.

Use your own options #

New in Eleventy v0.2.15: It’s recommended to use the Configuration API to set override the default options above.

module.exports = function(eleventyConfig) {
dynamicPartials: true

Set your own Library instance #

New in Eleventy v0.3.0: As an escape mechanism for advanced usage, pass in your own instance of the Liquid library using the Configuration API. See all liquidjs options.

⚠️ Not compatible with setLiquidOptions above—this method will ignore any configuration set there.

module.exports = function(eleventyConfig) {
let liquidJs = require("liquidjs");
let options = {
extname: ".liquid",
dynamicPartials: true,
root: ["_includes"]
eleventyConfig.setLibrary("liquid", liquidJs(options));
