Summary String Transformations

You can apply transformations on fields in a summary string template using filter notation syntax.

Example config:

  - name: 'posts'
    label: 'Posts'
    folder: '_posts'
    summary: "{{title | upper}} - {{date | date('YYYY-MM-DD')}} – {{body | truncate(20, '***')}}"
      - { label: 'Title', name: 'title', widget: 'string' }
      - { label: 'Publish Date', name: 'date', widget: 'datetime' }
      - { label: 'Body', name: 'body', widget: 'markdown' }

The above config will transform the title field to uppercase and format the date field using YYYY-MM-DD format. Available transformations are upper, lower, date('<format>'), default('defaultValue'), ternary('valueForTrue','valueForFalse') and truncate(<number>)/truncate(<number>, '<string>')
