Nunjucks syntax

Depending on your environment you'll want to use render or include. As a rule of thumb: server-side use include, precompiled browser use render. If you're using vf-eleventy you should use include.

Using include

You'll need to pass a context object from your code or Yaml file (example), as well as the path to the Nunjucks template. Nunjucks' include is an abstraction of render and provides some additional portability.


{% set context fromYourYamlFile %}
- or -
{% set context = {
  "component-type": "block",
  "exampleMultiColumns": "false",
  "count": 0,
  "table_headings": [
    {
      "title": "Event"
    },
    {
      "title": "Date",
      "sorted": "top"
    },
    {
      "title": "Type"
    },
    {
      "title": "Location"
    }
  ],
  "table_rows": [
    [
      {
        "selected_row": true
      },
      {
        "text": "dave"
      },
      {
        "text": "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Minima accusamus a nostrum odit aliquid repudiandae architecto molestiae, dolores."
      },
      {
        "text": "roger"
      },
      {
        "text": "London, U.K."
      }
    ],
    [
      {
        "text": "dave"
      },
      {
        "text": "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Distinctio fugit illo officia dignissimos amet."
      },
      {
        "text": "roger"
      },
      {
        "text": "London, U.K."
      }
    ],
    [
      {
        "text": "dave"
      },
      {
        "text": "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit."
      },
      {
        "text": "roger"
      },
      {
        "text": "London, U.K."
      }
    ]
  ]
}
 %}
{% include "../path_to/vf-table/vf-table.njk" %}
                

Using render

This approach is best for bare-bones Nunjucks environments, such as precompiled templates with the Nunjucks slim runtime where include is not be available.

{% render '@vf-table', {
  "component-type": "block",
  "exampleMultiColumns": "false",
  "count": 0,
  "table_headings": [
    {
      "title": "Event"
    },
    {
      "title": "Date",
      "sorted": "top"
    },
    {
      "title": "Type"
    },
    {
      "title": "Location"
    }
  ],
  "table_rows": [
    [
      {
        "selected_row": true
      },
      {
        "text": "dave"
      },
      {
        "text": "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Minima accusamus a nostrum odit aliquid repudiandae architecto molestiae, dolores."
      },
      {
        "text": "roger"
      },
      {
        "text": "London, U.K."
      }
    ],
    [
      {
        "text": "dave"
      },
      {
        "text": "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Distinctio fugit illo officia dignissimos amet."
      },
      {
        "text": "roger"
      },
      {
        "text": "London, U.K."
      }
    ],
    [
      {
        "text": "dave"
      },
      {
        "text": "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit."
      },
      {
        "text": "roger"
      },
      {
        "text": "London, U.K."
      }
