"Templates": SugarCube (v2.29)#


Starting in SugarCube 2.29, Templates can be used to create a new special type of value that looks like a variable but acts like a macro. Templates follow the same rules as variables (limited to letters, numbers, and the underscore), but they start with the question mark, ?, and can contain the hyphen in their name.

Note: Templates are added using the Template API in SugarCube. They must be defined before they appear in a story.

This example also uses the StoryInit special passage name with the <<script>> macro to create a template before the first passage is shown.
