Data Editor

The Data Editor is a group of input fields. The inputs shown are dependent on your keys and values. See Inputs for a list of choices to tune the experience.

YAML, JSON and CSV files open in the Data Editor, most commonly in the _data directory (configurable in _config.yml as data_dir). The use cases for data files include: office locations, restaurant menus, staff members and opening hours.
