How to Skip Iterations in a Python For Loop with Jinja Conditionals?

Estimated read time 2 min read

In Jinja templates, you can use the {% if %} statement to apply conditional logic to your for loop and use the continue statement to skip iterations based on those conditions.

Here’s an example of using Jinja conditionals to skip iterations in a for loop:

{% for item in items %}
    {% if item == 'cherry' %}
        {% continue %}
    {% endif %}
    <li>{{ item }}</li>
{% endfor %}

In this example, we use a for loop to iterate over a list of items. Inside the loop, we use an {% if %} statement to check if the current item is equal to 'cherry'. If the item is 'cherry', we use the {% continue %} statement to skip the remaining code in the current iteration and move on to the next iteration. If the item is not 'cherry', we print the item inside an HTML list item element.

Note that the Jinja syntax uses curly braces ({{ }}) to interpolate variables and expressions, and uses percent signs ({% %}) to denote control structures such as {% if %} and {% for %}. When using Jinja conditionals in a for loop, make sure to include the continue statement inside the conditional block and use the appropriate indentation to maintain the structure of the HTML.

The output of this code would be an HTML list of items, where the item 'cherry' is skipped:

<ul>
    <li>apple</li>
    <li>banana</li>
    <li>date</li>
</ul>

You can modify the condition in the {% if %} statement to skip different iterations as needed.
