The default template of PocketQuery produces a simple Confluence table:
The table has two columns Name and Population, according to the SELECT clause of the query. You can change this appearance with a custom template.
Templates for PocketQuery are written in Velocity, a Java templating language. Let’s have a look at the code of the default PocketQuery template that is selected by default for all queries.
<table class="aui confluenceTable pocketquery-table"> <thead> <tr> #foreach ($column in $columns) <th class="confluenceTh">$!column</th> #end </tr> </thead> <tbody> #foreach ($row in $result) <tr> #foreach ($column in $row) <td class="confluenceTd">$!column</td> #end </tr> #end </tbody> </table>
There is one loop for the header that runs through the column names and one loop (with another nested loop) running through the result. Note that the variables
$result are passed to any PocketQuery template, so you can use them as you please. For a more formal specification of what kind of objects are available in PocketQuery templates, see Velocity API Available In Templates.
