Getting Started with V8

If you’re familiar with developing a template in V7 of the Editor, then you’ll be fairly comfortable in developing a template for V8. The main methods haven’t changed, such as most of the files for a template and how to use it with the Editor, but there are some nuances that you’ll need to watch out for.

  • There is now a wider array of template variables for developers to use, these will then be controllable in the new V8 Editor, more information can be found in Metadata in V8
