Using TinyLiquid in Express 3.x

1. Initialization

var expressLiquid = require('express-liquid');
var options = {
  // read file handler, optional
  includeFile: function (filename, callback) {
    fs.readFile(filename, 'utf8', callback);
  },
  // the base context, optional
  context: expressLiquid.newContext(),
  // custom tags parser, optional
  customTags: {},
  // if an error occurred while rendering, show detail or not, default to false
  traceError: false
};
app.set('view engine', 'liquid');
app.engine('liquid', expressLiquid(options));

2. Render a template

res.render('template_name', {context: context});

3. About the include tag: {% include %}

The root directory is views, for example: {% include "abc/efg" %} will include the file "abc/edf" under the "views" directory

If your want to use a relative file path, please add the "./" or "../" prefix. For example:

{% include "./path/to" %}
{% include "../path/to" %}

Usually, you may omit template file name suffix, then it will try to add a subffix name from the configuration view engine

4. Changing the default views directory

app.set('views', '/path/to/views');
