Base URL

Last updated: 09.01.2020

Whenever you want to create some urls in your theme, you can build them with the {{ base_url }} tag. The base url always returns the basic url to your application. Usually this is the domain name, but if you develop on localhost, it can also be something like http://localhost/your-project-folder.

{{ base_url }}

If you develop your theme, the base url is pretty useful if you want to include some assets like CSS or JavaScript. You can reference to these files like this:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ base_url }}/themes/typemill/css/style.css" />
