Solution::Tag::Assign - Variable assignment construct


    {% assign some.variable = 'this value' %}


You can store data in your own variables for later use as output or in other tags. The simplest way to create a variable is with the assign tag which a rather straightforward syntax.

    {% assign = 'john' %}
    Hello, {{ | capitalize }}.

You can modify the value before assignment with filters.

    {% assign = 'john' | capitalize %}
    Hello, {{ }}.
