Template Syntax

Top-Level List Loop

Given the following JSON data, which is often the result when using a context filter, that returns a top level list:

JSON
[
  {
    "id": 1,
    "name": "Mario Speedwagon",
    "username": "mario"
  },
  {
    "id": 2,
    "name": "Anna Sthesia",
    "username": "anna"
  }
]

You can access the list in the template by using the following syntax. {{#.}} to start the loop and {{/.}} to close the loop.

HTML
<table class="aui aui-table-list">        
    <thead>
        <th>ID</th>
        <th>Name</th>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
    {{#.}}
        <tr>
            <td>{{ id }}<td>
            <td>{{ name }}<td>
        </tr>            
    {{/.}}
    </tbody>
</table>

Named List Loop

Given the following JSON data, which does not return a top level list, but has to be accessed by name:

JSON
{
  "result": [
    {
      "id": 1,
      "name": "Mario Speedwagon",
      "username": "mario"
    },
    {
      "id": 2,
      "name": "Anna Sthesia",
      "username": "anna"
    }
  ]
}

You can access the list in the template by using the following syntax. {{#result}} to start the loop and {{/result}} to close the loop.

HTML
<table class="aui aui-table-list">        
    <thead>
        <th>ID</th>
        <th>Name</th>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
    {{#result}}
        <tr>
            <td>{{ id }}<td>
            <td>{{ name }}<td>
        </tr>            
    {{/result}}
    </tbody>
</table>

Number Formatting

You can use helper functions for easier formatting of numbers.

The following examples are run on this JSON:

CODE
{
    "number1": 1.5,    
    "number2": 1000.457
}

Examples

CODE
{{ FormatCurrency number1 }}
-> $1.50

{{ FormatNumber number1 'N0' }}
-> 2

{{ FormatNumber number1 'N1' }}
-> 1.5

{{ FormatNumber number1 'N2' }}
-> 1.50

The default setting for the number formatting is en-US. If you need other formatting options, you can easily add another Format Culture:

CODE
{{ FormatCurrencyCulture number1 'de-DE'}}
-> 1,50 €
{{ FormatNumberCulture number2 'N2''de-DE' }}
-> 1.000,46    

Date & Time Formatting

Helper functions can help you with basic date and time formatting:

CODE
{
    "time": "2020-09-01T22:05:45.488+02:00"
}

Examples

CODE
{{ FormatDate time 'g''en-Us'}}
-> "9/1/2020 10:05 PM"

{{ OffsetTimezoneThenFormatDate time '+8''g''en-AU'}}
-> "2/9/2020 4:05 am"

The g in the examples is a format type that can be changed to the following formats. This variable varies depending on the Format Culture.

CODE
* d :08/17/2000
* D :Thursday, August 17, 2000
* f :Thursday, August 17, 2000 16:32
* F :Thursday, August 17, 2000 16:32:32
* g :08/17/2000 16:32
* G :08/17/2000 16:32:32
* m :August 17
* r :Thu, 17 Aug 2000 23:32:32 GMT
* s :2000-08-17T16:32:32
* t :16:32
* T :16:32:32
* u :2000-08-17 23:32:32Z
* U :Thursday, August 17, 2000 23:32:32
* y :August, 2000

IF / ELSE Example

If you want to display a coloured badge depending on whether a value is true or false, consider the following JSON data…

CODE
[
  { 
    "isActive": false,
    "company": "POWERNET"
  },
  {   
    "isActive": true,
    "company": "EXIAND"
  },
  {   
    "isActive": false,
    "company": "KYAGURU"
  },
  {
    "isActive": true,
    "company": "OATFARM"
  },
  {
    "isActive": true,
    "company": "VIAGRAND"
  }
]

…in combination with the following template (with {{#isActive}} being the IF part and {{^isActive}} referring to the ELSE part).

CODE

<table class="aui">
{{#.}}
    <tr>        
        <td>{{company}}</td>
        <td>
            {{#isActive}}
                <span class="aui-lozenge aui-lozenge-removed">Inactive</span>
            {{/isActive}}
            {{^isActive}}
                <span class="aui-lozenge aui-lozenge-success">Active</span>
            {{/isActive}}
        </td>
    </tr>
{{/.}}
</table>

The result should look like this:

In case you need to compare the value of your data source, you can use the following helper function to achieve a similar result:

CODE

<table class="aui">
{{#.}}
    <tr>        
        <td>{{company}}</td>
        <td>
            <span class="aui-lozenge aui-lozenge-{{ RenderOnMatch isActive 'true''success''removed'}}">
              {{ RenderOnMatch isActive 'true''Active''Inactive'}}
            </span>
        </td>
    </tr>
{{/.}}
</table>

RenderOnMatch Example Explained

CODE
{{ RenderOnMatch field 'compare''equal''notequal'}}

This helper function compares the value compare with the value of the field and renders equal if they are identical and notequal if they differ.

SearchReplace

In case you have a text that contains line breaks like \n or \r\n and want to display those line breaks in HTML you can use the following syntax:

CODE
{{ SearchReplace field '\n''<br>' }}

or

CODE
{{ SearchReplace field '\r\n''<br>' }}

Arithmetics

There are also helper functions to do basic arithmetics in combination with formatting of the result.

The following examples are run on this JSON

CODE
{
    "number1": 6,    
    "number2": 3
}

Examples

You can add, subtract, divide and multiple decimal values.

CODE
{{ AddThenFormat number1 number2 'N1' }}
-> 9.0

{{ SubThenFormat number1 number2 'N1' }}
-> 3.0

{{ DivThenFormat number1 number2 'P1' }}
-> 50.0%

{{ MulThenFormat number2 number1 'N1' }}
-> 18.0

If you need different culture formats you can customize them as well. The default setting for number formatting is en-US.

CODE
{{ AddThenFormatCulture number1 number2 'N1''de-DE' }}
-> 9,0

{{ SubThenFormatCulture number1 number2 'N1''de-DE' }}
-> 3,0

{{ DivThenFormatCulture number1 number2 'P2''de-DE' }}
-> 50,00%

{{ MulThenFormatCulture number2 number1 'N1''de-DE' }}
-> 18,0

Access Array By Index

The following examples are run on this JSON:

JSON
{
  "result":[
    { "name" : "anybody"},
    { "name" : "nobody"}
  ]
}

Examples

CODE
{{#result.0}} {{ name }} {{/result.0}}
-> anybody
{{#result.1}} {{ name }} {{/result.1}}
-> nobody

{{ AccessArrayByIndex 'result''0''name' }}
-> anybody
{{ AccessArrayByIndex 'result''1''name' }}
-> nobody

The following examples are run on this JSON:

JSON
[
  { "name" : "anybody"},
  { "name" : "nobody"}
]

Examples

CODE
{{ AccessArrayByIndex '.''0''name' }}
-> anybody
{{ AccessArrayByIndex '.''1''name' }}
-> nobody

Access Array By Condition

Sometimes you need to access specific values of an array by condition index of an index. This can be achieved with this function.

The following examples are run on this JSON:

JSON
{
  "result":[
    { "id": 123, "name" : "anybody"},
    { "id": 345, "name" : "nobody"}
  ]

Examples

CODE
{{ AccessArrayByCondition 'result''$..[?(@.id==123)]''$.name' }}
-> anybody

{{ AccessArrayByCondition 'result''$..[?(@.id==345)]''$.name' }}
-> nobody

Javascript

Due to security reasons, we currently don’t allow any custom Javascript logic within templates. However, you can still work with AUI elements that don’t need extra scripting, like the expander.
