Return array item by index in a meteor spacebars template

I want to access the first item of an array inside a meteor template, I'm using this syntax :

<p>{{array[0]}}</p>


However it doesn't seem like it's working. I don't want to iterate through values using
{{#each}}
, just pick the first one from the array.

Answer

This is just a problem of syntax, the correct one is the following :

<p>{{array.[0]}}</p>

Notice the . dot between the array property and the brackets (array indexing) notation ?

Here is the (hidden) docs for this :
