How do I add a Handlebars helper to Glitch in Bio?
print icon

Your Glitch in Bio site is built using Vite, and uses Handlebars to build the JSON data into the page. The site comes with a custom helper called hostasclass included by default but you can add more.

 

Let's try adding a silly helper function that returns emoji to the page. In vite.config.js, after the hostasclass helper, add this function (after a comma to mark the end of the previous one):

 

getemoji: num => {
 let emoji = ["🚀", "😺", "⚽", "🎈", "🎉"];
 return emoji
  .slice(0, num < emoji.length ? num : emoji.length).join("");
}

 

 

 

Now to use the function in the site, in links.html add this after the closing </li> tag: {{getemoji 3}}

 

 

You'll see the emoji written into the page in the preview.

 

 

Try changing the functionality or adding your own helper!
