Understanding Loops in Xano and When to Use Them

In this meeting, the State Changers are discussing the use of loops in Xano. One participant is concerned about using while loops due to the risk of creating an infinite loop. The other participant explains that for each loops and for loops are safer options for most use cases. They discuss the concept of iteration and how it is lower risk and usually contains more affordances. The use of a while loop is recommended when the stopping condition is unknown, such as when downloading pages of data. They also discuss the possibility of using a for loop to iterate over a known number of pages. Another topic mentioned is the difference between loop break and loop continue. Loop break is used to stop the loop and exit, while loop continue jumps to the next iteration of the loop. The meeting ends with the participant feeling more confident and ready to explore and understand loops in Xano further.
