Conditionals, Variables, Frontmatter

Nico del Castillo February 12, 2015 by Nico del Castillo

I think I'm missing something in this. Can I run a conditional with variables from my frontmatter? Trying to output something different according to a match, but it only ever runs the "else" part.

In the .md file:

    type: red
    output: condition1
    type: blue
    output: condition2
    type: green
    output: condition3
    type: potato
    output: condition4

And then in the template file:

{{ stuff }}
  <li>{{ if type == "potato" }} Highlighting {{ output }} because it's special {{ else }} A simple {{ output }} {{ endif }}</li>
{{ /stuff }}
