Re: Free Nodelet gets templating features (', " and \)

in reply to Free Nodelet gets templating features

Oddly enough for templating features destined to be used in JavaScript, there's no modifier to interpolate a variable (say `title`) as a JavaScript literal.

For example, neither

var title = '`title`'; # Fails for titles containing ' or \.

nor

var title = "`title`"; # Fails for titles containing " or \.

work for all titles. The workaround:

var title = decodeURIComponent('`title%`');

Update: tye suggested `title"` in a later post.
