Can someone explain the syntax '{{'...'}}' to me?

I've never seen that before. I've been working with js a lot over the past year, and I also have done the node.js basics course in Treehouse. I've seen it only in this tutorial (and in the node docs). Can someone explain how it works?

Can it be used on only objects? Only JSON? Both? Does it just go into an object and then go one level deeper to an object within an object? I don't understand.

Any insight would be helpful.

To which tutorial are you referring? Double curly braces are fairly common in templating engines and in frameworks like Angular.

If you provide a link to the tutorial or a code snippet I am sure we can get your question answered.

Happy coding,
