Template Filter - addslashes


Escape the quote in the name variable:

<h1>{{ name|addslashes }}</h1>
Run Example »

Definition and Usage

The addslashes filter adds a slash \ character before any quotes.

This can be helpful when you are dealing with JavaScript, and you have to escape quote characters.


Escape the name, or else you will get an error when alerting it:

<button onclick="alert('{{ name|addslashes }}')">Click me!</button>
Run Example »

Without the addslashes filter in the example above, the page would get an error when someone clicked the button.


Template filters are defined by using a pipe | character followed by the name of the filter.

{{ value|addslashes }}
