{
    column: {
    name
    id
    dataType
    description
    nullable
    defaultValue
  }, // the column being edited
  columns: [], // all columns, including the current one
  storageLocations: [] // currently available storage locations
  config: {} // any user defined config attributes defined in node spec
  sources: [] // all sources for current node
  node: {} // all current node metadata
  this: {} // {{ ref_no_link for current node }} 
  parameters: "" // runtime parameters
}

For example: Add in a prefix

myPrefix_{{ column.name }}

Removing foo from a column name

{{ column.name | replace("foo", "") }}
