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


Rather than constantly fixing outdated documentation, find getLiquidOptions in Liquid.js.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));
