Include `macro` in content


I have a content page where I currently call a shortcode that renders some data.
Now I want to generate links to other pages based on the path for this I would need to use the get_page function which is not available in shortcodes the documentation says that the alternative is a macro but I don’t know how to load a macro from my markdown file in content.

Can someone help me or point me into another direction.
What I want to achieve is to link to another page. I have the relative_path to the page and need to generate a link with the page.title.

Thanks a lot.

Just bumping this question. I stumble about the same problem.

I want to include a project list from a directory in between content pieces:

# some markdown
{{ projectlist() }}
# some more markdown

Shortcodes don’t work and I can’t figure out how to include macros in the markdown file.

Any help would be appreciated!

You can’t include macros in the markdown files. What do you mean shortcodes don’t work?

Shortcodes technically work for me, but for this use-case I cannot use them as they would need to support get_section:
I try to iterate over all projects in a folder (content / projects / project 1…5 / and retrieve the project’s title/date/etc. This list should then be embedded in the middle of regular content.
Similar to:
‘hi, here are some projects’
{{ projectlist }} ← this is the impossible shortcode with get_section
‘thanks for checking them out’

I think the confusion comes from the documentation, where macros are mentioned as alternative to shortcodes. After taking a second look, I realized that the docs also clearly say that macros are called from templates – sorry.

The original problem remains: how can one integrate automatically retrieved content from pages surrounded by regular markdown content?
Is there another way of doing this that won’t require get_section?
