Template:Tl/doc

The template link template is a simple macro template used to display a template name as a link surrounded by braces, thus showing how the template name would be used in code. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation. A short example is that the code:

{{Tl|Example}}
generates
{{Example}}

<templatedata>{ "description": "This template displays a template name as a link surrounded by braces, thus showing how the template name would be used in code. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation.", "params": {

 "1": {
   "label": "template name",
   "description": "the template name without the namespace prefix “Template:”, which is added automatically",
   "type": "string",
   "required": true
 }

}}</templatedata>

More complex variations are described below.

Example

Code Result
{{Tl|Void}} {{Void}}
{{Tl2|X1}} {{X1}}
{{Tl2|SISTER=M:|3x}} {{3x}}
{{Tl2|SISTER=wikibooks|LANG=de:|WP}} {{WP}}
{{Tl|1==)}} {{=)}}
