Liquid Variable Reference

From Spiffy Stores Knowledge Base

Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a reference list of objects which you can use in your liquid templates. For an introduction to liquid templates you can check out the Liquid Basics page.

Contents

Requirements

Following variables must be included in every Liquid theme file such as the theme.liquid.

  • {{content_for_header}}
  • {{content_for_layout}}

Template specific objects

Special purpose templates usually export the object they reference by the same name as the template file. Product.liquid, for example, would export a product object which references the current product on the page.

index.liquid

This template creates your store's home page. It is not directly related to any given resource of your store in the same way that Product.liquid is.

Because it does not refer to a specific resource, index.liquid makes use of the global objects referenced below. You are free to use any objects (product, collection, page, etc.) in your store from here.

By convention the default themes will render all articles of a blog with the handle home-page, if it exists, and will display products from a collection with the handle home-page. Both of these objects are created automatically during the Spiffy Stores signup when your new store is created.

product.liquid

This template displays the referenced product and all its variants.

blog.liquid

This template is used to display a blog and its articles.

collection.liquid

This template is used to display a collection of products and all the tags for the collection.

This template will usually use pagination to help to display a large number of items.

page.liquid

This template provides the basic support for displaying the static pages for your store.

cart.liquid

This template contains the layout for your shopping cart, and will show all the items that the customer has selected for purchase.

search.liquid

This template contains the layout for your search results.

404.liquid

This template will be displayed whenever a page, product or collection cannot be found. It gives you the opportunity to redirect your customers to a search page or some other way of helping them find what they are looking for.

Global Objects

Following objects are available from any Liquid template in the system.

Conditional Objects

If a customer is logged in

Other Objects

The following objects are referenced by other Liquid Template Variables, and may be accessed from those objects, rather than being referenced directly.
