For Loops

Liquid allows for loops over arrays or collections of data. Loop over children, labels, blog posts, or navigation elements easily.

{% for child in item.children %} 
  <h2>{{ child.title }}</h2>
  {{ }}
{% endfor %}

During every for loop the following helper variables are available for extra data and display needs:

Key Description
forloop.length length of the entire for loop
forloop.index index of the current iteration
forloop.index0 index of the current iteration (zero based)
forloop.rindex how many items are still left?
forloop.rindex0 how many items are still left? (zero based)
forloop.first is this the first iteration?
forloop.last is this the last iteration?

There are several attributes you can use to influence which items you receive in your loop. limit lets you restrict how many times the loop runs, and offset lets you skip the given number of items at the beginning of the collection.

# array = [1,2,3,4,5,6]
{% for item in array limit:2 offset:2 %}
  {{ item }}
{% endfor %} 
# => 34

Instead of looping over an existing collection, you can define a range of numbers to loop through. The range can be defined by both literal and variable numbers:

# if item.quantity is 4...
{% for i in (1..item.quantity) %}
  {{ i }}
{% endfor %}
# => 1234
