Could anyone explain more about the "saves.get" used in the html templates?
Online documentations/references when we passed
saves from app.py can be found here:
return render_template('builder.html', saves=get_saved_data(), options=DEFAULTS)
But when used inside html templates, I can't find references or is there a way to know from python interpreter too?
Thanks in advanced!

The saves variable is a dictionary that come from get_saved_data() method which convert the json object from cookie to a dictionary.
So, saves is a dictionary and a dictionary have a method called get, in this case saves.get() that returns a value of a specified key, the second parameter is the default value if the key is not found, saves.get('name', '').
The 'name' key come from the post request to '/save' route in request.form, because one of the input field in the form named 'name'. Hope its help you.
