Reusable YAML Variables
Did you know you can reuse YAML code?
There are two parts to this:
- The anchor
&which defines the value of the variable
- The alias
*used to refer to the variable
title: &title 'Reusable YAML Variables' description: &description 'Reusing YAML variables within grey matter to conveniently generate meta tags.' meta: - name: og:description content: *description - name: og:title content: *title
This will now provide the
description values throughout the YAML file.
While working with YAML and Grey Matter, I found this very convenient and figured I'd share.
