Template::Liquid::Tag::Comment - General Purpose Content Eater


    I love you{% comment %} and your sister {% endcomment %}.


comment is the simplest tag. Child nodes are not rendered so it effectivly swallows content.

    {% for article in articles %}
        <div class='post' id='{{ article.id }}'>
            <p class='title'>{{ article.title | capitalize }}</p>
            {% comment %}
                Unless we're viewing a single article, we will truncate
                article.body at 50 words and insert a 'Read more' link.
            {% endcomment %}
    {% endfor %}

Code inside a comment tag is not executed during rendering. So, this...

    {% assign str = 'Initial value' %}
    {% comment %}
        {% assign str = 'Different value' %}
    {% endcomment %}
    {{ str }}

...would print Initial value.
