<sly> element in <script> tag not evaluating?

I have a problem similar to this one: Sightly in &lt;script&gt; tag not evaluating?

In that thread, the problem was that Sightly expressions inside a script element were not being rendered, and the solution was to add @ context = 'scriptString' to the expression.

My situation is a slightly different: Inside my HTML script element, I want to put a Sightly element:

<script id="availabilitiesTemplate" type="text/template" >

    <sly data-sly-include="availabilitiesTemplate.html"></sly>

</script>

But the included file is not rendered to the output.

I suspect this is also a context problem, but I can't find any docs on setting the context on a <sly> element, and none of my experiments have worked. I've tried setting the context:

<script id="availabilitiesTemplate" type="text/template" >

    <sly data-sly-include="${ availabilitiesTemplate.html @ context = 'scriptString' }"></sly>

</script>

I've also tried assigning the template with a data-sly-use expression:

<sly data-sly-use.avail="availabilitiesTemplate.html"></sly>

<script id="availabilitiesTemplate" type="text/template" >

    ${avail @ context='scriptString'}

</script>

Neither of these approaches works either; in all cases the output is

<script id="availabilitiesTemplate" type="text/template" >

</script>

Is there any way to get a <sly> element to render inside a <script> element?

Hi volcohen,

The problem is you are using the whole sightly syntax .

You can try with handlebar use this line to include resource in script.

<script id="my-handlebar-template" type="text/x-handlebars-template" data-sly-include="handlebar.html"></script>
