I am planning to use erlydtl for one my application. Thanks for the great work. I like to see support for dynamic variable substitution -- thats L1 = [{a, one}, {b,two}]
L2 = [{one, "This is one"}, {two, "this is two"}]

I want to do {% for K, V in L1 %}

{{ L2.V}}
{% endfor %}

Please excuse for bad example but it explains what it should be there.

This is kind of done by zotonic team http://code.google.com/p/zotonic/
Is it possible to support this use case? this is going to be very powerful.

This is not present in Django and so will not be supported in ErlyDTL

Hi Evan, this has caught me out too. Could you suggest a solution? Would this be possible with a custom tag?

Many thanks
