Template::Liquid::Tag::Capture - Extended variable assignment construct

Synopsis ^

    {% capture triple_x %}
        {% for x in (1..3) %}{{ x }}{% endfor %}
    {% endcapture %}

Description ^

If you want to combine a number of strings into a single string and save it to a variable, you can do that with the capture tag. This tag is a block which "captures" whatever is rendered inside it, then assigns the captured value to the given variable instead of rendering it to the screen.

See Also ^
