Intermediate keys

Just got here? This module is part of a full-length Liquid tutorial. Start from the beginning.  

In this module, we’ll cover:

  • Understanding key format: JSON
  • Types of values
  • Complex values

You already know that a key is used to reference a value. In this module, we’re going to pop the hood and look at the code that makes up a key.
Understanding just what’s what in the code allows you to see directly what you have to work with for personalizing your content. For instance, if your customer key contains a name and date of birth, you could send a personal birthday message. You’ll also learn how the values are formatted, which tells you how you can use filters and tags to affect how values are displayed.
