3. Interpolation and External Arguments
In L20n strings may use special syntax to incorporate small pieces of
programmable interface. Those pieces are denoted with curly braces
} and are called placeables.
The most common use case for a placeable is to put an external argument, provided by the developer, into the string.
There are all kinds of external data that might be useful in providing a good localization: user names, number of unread messages, battery level, current time, time left before an alarm goes off, etc.
To reference a context data variable, use the dollar syntax in your L20n code:
user has to be defined in the context data. In the examples below, we insert the value of a context data variable into an entity's value.
