// Usage:
// Create a dynamic textfield with linkage name helloworld_txt and give it an initial value of '{{hello}} {{world}}!'
// add the function substitute below to a static class or put it somewhere in your project
// call it by passing the textfield name first and an object of key values to replace second
Helpers.substitute(helloworld_txt, {hello: 'It', world: 'Works' });
// run the file, the textfield should now say "It Works!"
