How can we access user variables in a template?
I'd like to be able to access user variables like userid, user email address, first name, last name, etc. Can I do something like:

Hi, {{username}}

    Shaun Harding No, theme templates don't allow this kind of variable substitution. The only thing theme template system does is render widgets.

        Shaun Harding Something like that. The API will expose user data as JSON, so you will be able to use custom code to access the information like a user's id, display name and email address.
