Records

This page uses Wasm code blocks so you can run the examples directly in the browser.

A record represents a set of attributes and their corresponding values of an artifact. For example, the following record may represent that a person named Tore has the income 100000:

{"name":"Tore", "income":100000}

Other commonly used terms for records are JSON objects, property lists, or dictionaries.

Let's assign the record above to a variable :t:

set :t = {"name":"Tore", "income":100000};
:t

An attribute a in a record r can be accessed using the r[a] notation, for example:

:t["name"]

JSON records is a common data format in external data sources and streams.
