Access JSON Lumps In Metafields With Shopify Liquid Templates

- 1 answer

I was wondering if anyone knew if I can access JSON in Liquid such as the example below.

I have created a metafield for the suppliers page with the namespace suppliers_details, with the key suppliers and the value:

  name: "Supplier Name One",
  address: "Supplier Address One"
  name: "Supplier Name Two",
  address: "Supplier Address Two"

In the template I have:

{% assign suppliers = page.metafields.suppliers.suppliers %}
{% for supplier in suppliers %}
  <p>{{ }}</p>
  <p>{{ supplier.address }}</p>
{% endfor %}

This doesn't work as I can't change the data into a format the the template can use to iterate through, is there a way to do this?
