Aliases

An alias defines a local macro.

Aliases are not members of a struct. They can be referred to only within the struct, and they do not appear in the output.

alias.cue

A = a  // A is an alias for a
a: {
d: 3
}
b: {
a: {
// otherwise be hidden by the inner one.
c: A.d
}
}

\$ cue eval alias.cue

a: {
d: 3
}
b: {
a: {
c: 3
}
}
