Substitution tags

Templater supports the following substitution tags in skeletons:


{{code}}: a unique alphanumeric code chosen when the Templater is run. Used to help ensure that participants only submit one survey per experiment.

{{total_number}}: the number of items presented in the experiment.

Within the items block

The items block begins with {{#items}} and ends with {{/items}}. Its contents will be duplicated as many times as necessary by the Templater. The following substitution tags only apply within the items block:

{{number}}: the current item number in the experiment.

{{field_n}}: will display the n-th field in the current item, on AMT or when simulated using the Simulator. Technically, {{field_n}} for item number m is turned into ${field_m_n} in the template file.
