Partials are independent chunks of content that can be included in any template or page. They can be authored with a combination of markdown, HTML, and/or Handlebars expressions. Partials cannot have their own front matter, but they do have access to config data and page data. You can also pass data to them as hash arguments.

Declarative Partials

Partials are defined declaratively. To add a partial, create a file in your project that begins with an underscore. For example, a file named will result in a partial called mypartial that can be included like this:

{{> mypartial}}

Similarly, a partial located at folder/ will be available as folder/mypartial:

{{> folder/mypartial}}

Passing Data to Partials

When including a partial, you can pass data in the form of hash arguments. Hash arguments look similar to HTML attributes.

{{>avatar name="Doxicity" image=""}}

Aside from the usual config data and page data, this will also expose name and image to the partial.

To learn more about how partials work, refer to the Handlebars documentation .
