Docs: Accessing method calls from templates

Reported by: shacker Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: 1.0
Severity: Keywords: documentation, methods, templates
Cc: Triage Stage: Ready for checkin
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


The template docs indicate that method calls can be referenced in templates but don't go into explicit detail on how to access them. As a non-hardcore programmer I found this frustrating, and have written a brief documentation section covering this (attached).

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement set
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted

If we were to include this (and it seems reasonable), it should also head off the obvious question of "how do I pass in arguments?" The answer being: "you don't", which is intentional. But that should be mentioned.

The revised patch includes an additional paragraph stating that it's not possible to pass arguments to method calls in templates. Feel free to revise.
