Mura iterators make managing content and users simpler by providing direct access to objects and their properties as well as offering a number of "helper" methods
Use Mura's custom variables scope, referenced simply as "$" , to retrieve the values of site settings and content attributes, inspect and react to the current user's browser session, and display Mura's content objects including forms, feeds and more.
Extend Mura's display functionality with custom methods which can be used directly in the admin content editor or wired into the logic of the theme's display templates.
