number_format

The number_format filter formats numbers:

{{ 200.35 | number_format }}

You can control the number of decimal places, decimal point, and thousands separator using the additional arguments:

{{ 9800.333 | number_format(2, '.', ',') }}

To format negative numbers or math calculation, wrap the previous statement with parentheses (needed because of Canvas precedence of operators):

{{ -9800.333 | number_format(2, '.', ',') }} {# outputs : -9 #}
{{ (-9800.333) | number_format(2, '.', ',') }} {# outputs : -9,800.33 #}
{{  1 + 0.2 | number_format(2) }} {# outputs : 1.2 #}
{{ (1 + 0.2) | number_format(2) }} {# outputs : 1.20 #}

If no formatting options are provided then Canvas will use the default formatting options of:

  • 0 decimal places.
  • . as the decimal point.
  • , as the thousands separator.
