Tests

Tests are used with the is operator to test a variable against an expression. The left operand is the thing being tested and the right operand is the name of the test (left and right of "is").

For example, to find out if the value of a variable is odd you could do:

{% if variable is odd %}
{% endif %}

variable is the value being tested and odd is the name of the test.

Negative tests

To do a negative test you would use the is not operator.

{% if variable is not defined %}
{% endif %}
