Show the contents of a value expression.

The {% print %} tag is used to dump the contents of a variable in a HTML safe way. It is very useful for debugging and inspecting variables during template development.

For example:

{% print value %}

When value is “<b>Hello</b> world!” then the example above returns the output:

&lt;b&gt;Hello&lt;/b&gt; world!

It can also print complex values like nested lists and tuples, for which it uses Erlang’s io_lib:format/2 function.
