This plugin defines the assert virtual method that can be used to automatically throw errors when undefined values are used.

For example, consider this dotop:

[% %]

If is an undefined value then TT will silently ignore the fact and print nothing. If you USE the assert plugin then you can add the assert vmethod between the user and name elements, like so:

[% %]

Now, if is an undefined value, an exception will be thrown:

assert error - undefined value for name
