What is the purpose of the ID?

I can't see the purpose for using the id within the templateData, that is const templateData = { id, hint };

What is the functionality of the ID, and why is it passed in as an argument?

Without looking at it too closely it looks like the ID parameter refers to an ID field in a set of structured data that makes up the card details. It's a unique identifier for your data model.
