foreign variables

Understanding foreign variables

ftd gives a way for its platform, fastn, to define some variables known as foreign variables. These variables, then, can be used in the ftd code whose value is provided by the platform. This gives fastn power over ftd to define its own variables.

fastn has one such foreign variables called assets. Each fastn package has a special module, assets, importing which you get access to its variables. These variables contains the reference to the files or fonts defined in the package.

The file referring variables are foreign variables, while, fonts are simple variable.
