1.7. Sections

Sections are similar to partials, except that they are captured inline for later use. In general, they are used by view templates to capture output for layout templates.

For example, you can capture output in the view template to a named section ...

{{ setSection ('local-nav') }}
    <!-- ... local navigation items ... -->
{{ endSection () }}

... and then use that output in a layout template:

<div id="local-nav">
    {{= getSection ('local-nav') }}
</div>

Using setSection() will overwrite any previous content for that section. Use preSection() to prepend, and addSection() to append, to a section.

{{ preSection ('local-nav')}}
<!-- add items to the top of the nav -->
{{ endSection() }}

{{ addSection ('local-nav')}}
<!-- add items to the end of the nav -->
{{ endSection() }}

You can see if a section exists using hasSection():

{{ if ($this->hasSection('local-nav')): }}
<div id="local-nav">
    {{= getSection ('local-nav') }}
</div>
{{ endif }}
