NAME ^

Template::Liquid::Filters - Default Filters Based on Liquid's Standard Set

Standard Filters ^

These are the current default filters. They have been written to behave exactly like their Ruby Liquid counterparts accept where Perl makes improvment irresistable.

date

Reformat a date...

The date filter also supports simple replacements of 'now' and 'today' with the current time. For example:

    {{ 'now' | date :'%Y' }}

...would print the current year.

capitalize

Capitalize words in the input sentence. This filter first applies Perl's lc function and then the ucfirst function.

    {{ 'this is ONLY a test.' | capitalize }} => This is only a test.

downcase

Convert an input string to lowercase using Perl's lc function.

    {{ 'This is HUGE!' | downcase }} => This is huge!

upcase

Convert a input string to uppercase using Perl's uc function.

first

Get the first element of the passed in array

    # Where array is [1..6]
    {{ array | first }} => 1

last

Get the last element of the passed in array.

    # Where array is [1..6]
    {{ array | last }} => 6

join

Joins elements of the array with a certain character between them.

    # Where array is [1..6]
    {{ array | join }}      => 1 2 3 4 5 6
    {{ array | join:', ' }} => 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

split

Split input string into an array of substrings separated by given pattern.

    # Where values is 'foo,bar,baz'
    {{ values | split ',' | last }} => baz

sort

Sort elements of the array.

    # Where array is defined as [3, 5, 7, 2, 8]
    {{ array | sort }} => 2, 3, 5, 7, 8

size

Return the size of an array, the length of a string, or the number of keys in a hash.

    # Where array is [1..6] and hash is { child => 'blarg'}
    {{ array     | size }} => 6
    {{ 'Testing' | size }} => 7
    {{ hash      | size }} => 1

strip_html

Strip html from string. Note that this filter uses s[<.*?][]g> in emmulation of the Ruby Liquid library's strip_html function. ...so don't email me if you (correcly) think this is a braindead way of stripping html.

    {{ '<div>Hello, <em id="whom">world!</em></div>' | strip_html }}  => Hello, world!
    '{{ '<IMG SRC = "foo.gif" ALT = "A > B">'        | strip_html }}' => ' B">'
    '{{ '<!-- <A comment> -->'                       | strip_html }}' => ' -->'

strip_newlines

Strips all newlines (\n) from string using the regular expression s[\n][]g.

newline_to_br

Replaces each newline (\n) with html break (<br />\n).

replace

Replace all occurrences of a string with another string. The replacement value is optional and defaults to an empty string ('').

    {{ 'foofoo'                 | replace:'foo','bar' }} => barbar
    {% assign this = 'that' %}
    {{ 'Replace that with this' | replace:this,'this' }} => Replace this with this
    {{ 'I have a listhp.'       | replace:'th' }}        => I have a lisp.

replace_first

Replaces the first occurrence of a string with another string. The replacement value is optional and defaults to an empty string ('').

    {{ 'barbar' | replace_first:'bar','foo' }} => 'foobar'

remove

Remove each occurrence of a string.

    {{ 'foobarfoobar' | remove:'foo' }} => 'barbar'

remove_first

Remove the first occurrence of a string.

    {{ 'barbar' | remove_first:'bar' }} => 'bar'

truncate

Truncate a string down to x characters.

    {{ 'Running the halls!!!' | truncate:19 }}         => Running the hall..
    {% assign blarg = 'STOP!' %}
    {{ 'Any Colour You Like' | truncate:10,blarg }}    => Any CSTOP!
    {{ 'Why are you running away?' | truncate:4,'?' }} => Why?
    {{ 'Ha' | truncate:4 }}                            => Ha
    {{ 'Ha' | truncate:1,'Laugh' }}                    => Laugh
    {{ 'Ha' | truncate:1,'...' }}                      => ...

...and...

    {{ 'This is a long line of text to test the default values for truncate' | truncate }}

...becomes...

    This is a long line of text to test the default...

truncatewords

Truncate a string down to x words.

    {{ 'This is a very quick test of truncating a number of words' | truncatewords:5,'...' }}
    {{ 'This is a very quick test of truncating a number of words where the limit is fifteen' | truncatewords: }}

...becomes...

    This is a very quick...
    This is a very quick test of truncating a number of words where the limit...

prepend

Prepend a string.

    {{ 'bar' | prepend:'foo' }} => 'foobar'

append

Append a string.

    {{ 'foo' | append:'bar' }} => 'foobar'

minus

Simple subtraction.

    {{ 4       | minus:2 }}  => 2
    '{{ 'Test' | minus:2 }}' => ''

plus

    {{ 154    | plus:1183 }}  => 1337
    {{ 'What' | plus:'Uhu' }} => WhatUhu

MATHFAIL!

Please note that integer behavior differs with Perl vs. Ruby so...

    {{ '1' | plus:'1' }}

...becomes 11 in Ruby but 2 in Perl.

times

Simple multiplication or string repetion.

    {{ 'foo' | times:4 }} => foofoofoofoo
    {{ 5     | times:4 }} => 20
