Yield Tag

The yield tag is a useful way to abstract and reuse your views by displaying content or markup extracted in a template by the section tag.


Most commonly this section/yield approach is used to create a global area in your layout that can be changed by your templates. This eliminates the need for any brittle and messy logic.


  • No thank you: {{ if template == "news" }} hardcode something {{ /if }}
  • Yes please: {{ yield:something }} + {{ section:something }}


In the example below, everything within the section:sidebar tag will not be rendered in the template, but rather in the layout.

// The Template
<h1>{{ title }}</h1>
{{ content }}
{{ section:sidebar }}
<h2>About the Author</h2>
{{ author:name }}
{{ author:bio }}
{{ /section:sidebar }}
// The Layout
<title>{{ title }} | {{ site_name }}</title>
{{ template_content }}
{{ yield:sidebar }}

Fallback Content

If no section is being pushed into the yield, you may display fallback content by using the tag as a pair.

{{ yield:sidebar }}
<img src="/img/CLIPPY.GIF">
<p>Hi! It looks like you're building a website. Would you like help?</p>
{{ /yield:sidebar }}

If you haven't read up on templates and layouts, you should. It's relevant.
