With front-matter we can add more complex data to our content than just blobs of text. Front-matter has to be on the top of the file and begins and ends with three dashes ---. Front-matter is completely optional and each content partial has layout: partial as the default variable. You can overwrite that of course. index.yml files have layout: page as the default variable.

# this is YAML front matter
variable: one
  - one thing
  - two things
  - several things
# all of this data is available to our layout

This is _markdown_.
Even with dashes inside of it


Still **markdown** :)

💡 Make sure you save your files in utf-8 encoding.

You can get really tricky and smart here as YAML supports many different forms of data. Read more what YAML can do in our cheat-sheet.
