Eleventy: Escaping Nunjucks Statements in Markdown Code Blocks

A fun little wrinkle, but one with a very quick solution: if you have a code block containing any Nunjucks templates (and you’re using Nunjucks as your templating engine), you could end up with a TemplateContentRenderError. To get around it you can wrap the entire block in a {% raw %} block:


<content type="html">
<![CDATA[<p>
{% image metadata.feed_reading.img_base_url + post.data.cover_image, post.data.title + " cover image" , "book_thumb" %}</p>
<p>Started Reading:
{{post.data.reading_start_date | readableDate }}</p>
<p>Finished Reading:
{{ post.data.reading_end_date | readableDate }}</p>
{{ post.templateContent | safe }}]]>
</content>
