Any source file can be rendered as content inside of a template.

Make a new subfolder in the skip-example directory called templates:

>>> mkdir templates

Next, create a template inside that folder

<!-- templates/my-template.j2 -->

<header> Here is my header! </header>

{{ content }}

<footer> Here is my footer! </footer>

Now, change from the Getting Started introduction to the following:


layout: my-template.j2


# Hello World!

Your index.html in the site folder will now be rendered with the header and footer from the layout.
