Ace Templates

For template documentation, follow the links from the Ace project.

  • Ace templates must be named with the ace-suffix; e.g., list.ace
  • It's possible to use both Go templates and Ace templates side by side and even include one into the other
  • Full Go template syntax support, including all the useful helper template functions
  • Partials can be included both with the Ace and the Go template syntax. For example, the following two will have the same output in Ace:
    • = include partials/foo.html .
    • {{ partial "foo" . }}

One noticeable difference between Ace and the other templating engines in Hugo is Ace's inheritance support through base and inner templates.

In Hugo, the Ace base template will be chosen with the same rule set as for Go base templates.

.:
index.ace

./blog:
single.ace
baseof.ace

./_default:
baseof.ace  list.ace  single.ace  single-baseof.ace

{{% note %}} Note that the html suffix is needed even if the filename is suffixed ace. This does not work from inside a theme (issue #763). {{% /note %}}

Some examples for the layout files above:

  • Home page: ./index.ace + ./_default/baseof.ace
  • Single page in the blog section: ./blog/single.ace + ./blog/baseof.ace
  • Single page in another section: ./_default/single.ace + ./_default/single-baseof.ace
  • Taxonomy page in any section: ./_default/list.ace + ./_default/baseof.ace

{{% note %}} In most cases, one baseof.ace in _default will suffice. An Ace template without a reference to a base section (e.g., = content) will be handled as a standalone template. {{% /note %}}

Amber Templates

For Amber template documentation, follow the links from the Amber project.

  • Amber templates must be named with the Amber suffix; e.g., list.amber
  • Partials in Amber or HTML can be included with the Amber template syntax:
    • import ../partials/test.html
    • import ../partials/test_a.amber
You can’t perform that action at this time.
