Text and Strings

Text manipulation and adjustments - How to work with text?
The easiest way to test your Jinja2 expressions is by using a Jinja2 evaluator with mock data (Don't include any sensitive data in those). Note, only standard Jinja2 expressions will work here, like if, elif, upper, etc.

Making strings UPPER case

{% set my_text = 'This will be upper case!' %}
{{ my_text | upper }}
Returns: THIS WILL BE UPPER CASE!

Making strings lower case

{% set my_text = 'This will be upper case!' %}
{{ my_text | lower }}
Returns: this will be lower case!

Concatenating Strings

{{ '+49', '292828834' | join(' ') }}
--> Returns a space: +49 292828834
If you just want a joint without a string, you can just write:
{{ '+49', '292828834' | join }}
--> Returns a space: +49292828834
Another common use-case is comma-separated concatenation:
{{ 'BMW', 'Mercedes', 'Audi' | join(', ') }}
--> Returns: BMW, Mercedes, Audi
Limiting or shortening strings to a certain number of characters:
my_string = "Hello my nam is Max"
my_string[:5]
--> Returns: Hello
my_string[:7]
--> Returns: Hello m
FYI: my_string[:7] yields the same result as my_string[0:7]
