Decide to render a partial or not dynamically in Astro

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

Using htmx I have the need to render an HTML partial from a page, so I use:

---
export const partial = true
---

What if, however, I decide I want to render a full page instead, maybe depending on the HTTP method used to reach this page?

I can still wrap the resulting HTML in a <Layout> component that renders the DOCTYPE, head tag and all.

And this will render the full page.

Otherwise if you just output an HTML fragment without wrapping in a layout, it’s an HTML partial.

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
