Subject [jira] Commented: (VELOCITY-680) RFC: New #local directive that behaves like #set but puts things into local context in macro rendering
Date Sun, 08 Feb 2009 09:14:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VELOCITY-680?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12671567#action_12671567
] 

Byron Foster commented on VELOCITY-680:
---------------------------------------

I guess I prefer the brevity of #local and #global, but I can change it if there's a consensus
on the set prefix.

Also, I wonder for consistency if the top most template should also have it's own local context.

> It would be very useful to be able to set variables that are in local macro scope. That
is, they do not overwrite "global" variables and are thrown away after macro rendering. This
would allow people to build macro libraries that do not clash so easily with each other.
> There is some implementation of a "LocalDirective" in experimental/localdirective but
I didn't quite get it and it doesn't follow the same syntax as #set. I used a few minutes
to hack together this alternative implementation which behaves exactly like #set but it puts
things in local context only.
> There's only one test case since this is Request-for-Comments type of patch.
