Build Status Gem Version License

Installation

If you're using bundler add this gem to your site's Gemfile in the :jekyll_plugins group:

group :jekyll_plugins do
  gem 'octopress-assign-tag'
end

Then install the gem with Bundler

$ bundle

To install manually without bundler:

$ gem install octopress-assign-tag

Usage

Use the assign tag like normal.

{% assign var1 = 'awesome' %}     //=> 'awesome'
{% assign var2 = var1 | upcase %} //=> 'AWESOME'

Conditionally assign variables.

{% assign linkpost = true if post.external-url %}
{% assign comments = true unless post.comments == false %}
{% assign url (post ? post.url : page.url) %}

Use fancy operators in assignment.

{% assign author = post.author || page.author || site.author %}
{% assign name ||= site.name %}
{% assign title_text += ' →' if linkpost %}
