Using Data #
Data can be used on a template from multiple different sources.
- Configure your Templates: Set data to configure how your template behaves in Eleventy.
- Eleventy Supplied Data: Use data that Eleventy provides to you.
- Set your own data anywhere in the Data Cascade to render in your templates.
