Comparisons in TWIG
This is the template that is called within the loop on the index.twig to show each post.
The post.class holds the full set of classes assigned to a post, which includes the class “sticky”. We do the match magic and you can use that to style your sticky posts differently ;)
“Timber helps you create fully-customized WordPress themes faster with more sustainable code. With Timber, you write your HTML using the Twig Template Engine separate from your PHP files.
This cleans-up your theme code so, for example, your php file can focus on being the data/logic, while your twig file can focus 100% on the HTML and display.”
Twig is a modern template engine for PHP
