logical or

For example,

{% if color_preference == "red" %}

You prefer red things!

{% endif %}

Multiple operators are permitted as well:

{% if color_preference == "red" or color_preference == "blue" %}

You prefer red or blue things!

{% endif %}


The contains object checks for the presence of a substring inside a string.

{% if recipient_email contains "" %}

You use gmail!

{% endif %}

contains can also check for the presence of a string in an array of strings. Assuming we have an array called subscription_preferences:

{% if subscription_preferences contains "newsletter" %}

You are subscribed to newsletters.

{% endif %}

contains can only search strings. You cannot use it to check for an object in an array of objects.
