Variables are a string of text that represent data. They are used when a value of something may change. Variables start with a $ followed by the name of the variable. Some actions let you create temporary variables.
Let’s say you wanted a command to welcome the name of a user when they join your chat. You could make a individual welcome command for each user but there is an easier way. You can use the $target variable which takes the first word after the command trigger.
CMD name: !welcome
CMD chatMessage data: Welcome to the chat $target
Use in chat: !welcome Mytho
CMD output: Welcome to the chat Mytho.
All variables are inserted into data fields the same way. Not all actions support variables. A list of all variables can be found below.
