Use .Scratch

To set a global variable in Hugo template, use .Scratch.

In the following example, a global variable of name can be read and write at both _default/baseof.html and partials/content.html.


<!DOCTYPE html><html>  ...  <body>    {{ $.Scratch.Set "name" "baseof" }}    {{/*; */}}{{ $.Scratch.Get "name" }};    {{ partial "content.html" . }}    {{/*; */}}{{ $.Scratch.Get "name" }};  </body> </html>  


{{/*; */}}{{ $.Scratch.Get "name" }}{{ $.Scratch.Set "name" "content" }};{{/*; */}}{{ $.Scratch.Get "name" }};
