Hashtag Loop for Iterating over Bucket Keys

This page uses Hashtag Variable Buckets to demonstrate Bucket Loops.   Values are set using duplicated keys, then all values are processed and displayed grouped by key.  
Processing this Hashtag Markup:

set my_bucket.name to "Fruits and Animals";
set my_bucket.items.0.name to "Apple";
set my_bucket.items.0.type to "Fruit";
set my_bucket.items.1.name to "Banana";
set my_bucket.items.1.type to "Fruit";
set my_bucket.items.2.name to "Cat";
set my_bucket.items.2.type to "Animal";
set my_bucket.items.3.name to "Dog";
set my_bucket.items.3.type to "Animal";


<h2><#[my_bucket.name as html]#></h2>

<# start loop for my_bucket.items; #>
	key = <# key #><br>
	value.name = <# value.name #><br>
	value.type = <# value.type #><br>
<# end loop #>

Fruits and Animals

key = 0
value.name = Apple
value.type = Fruit

key = 1
value.name = Banana
value.type = Fruit

key = 2
value.name = Cat
value.type = Animal

key = 3
value.name = Dog
value.type = Animal

The Hashtag Framework provides Loop Templates for iterative and repetitive processing of Hashtag Markup.  

The examples in this section cover the different types of Loop Templates: Bucket, Range, and Until Conditional.
