A template is a file controlling how a (part of a) website looks in frontend, and correspondingly templating is the act of working with templates.
When you work with templates you:
- Fetch data from Dynamicweb – text, images, products, orders, etc.
- Render that data on a web page – a frontpage, a product list, a news article, etc.
This section of the documentation portal deals with the various concepts and tools used in Dynamicweb to accomplish this:
- ViewModels/TemplateTags/API – different ways of retrieving data from the Dynamicweb solution
- Designs, Templates & Navigations – for doing stuff with that information in frontend
This part of the documentation portal used to be exclusively dedicated to being a TemplateTag Reference – with lists of tags and loops available in various template contexts.
These lists are still available:
For a more general introduction to TemplateTags please see this article – but please note that we recommend that you switch to using a combination of ViewModels and the API at your earliest convenience.
