Add data to your page

Working with front matters to add page data

The front matter can contain any variable that you want. For example, let's define a variable with the name title:

layout: layout.njk
title: This is my website
# Welcome to my website

This if my first page using **Lume,**
a static site generator for Deno.

I hope you enjoy it.

This variable is accessible by the layout so that it can be inserted into the html code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <title>{{ title }}</title>
  {{ content | safe }}

The <title> tag has the {{ title }} placeholder used to insert the value of the variable title.
