Prepopulate member name to comment

Is there a way to pre-populate the name and email fields in the comment form (comment app) with the logged in member (from the member app)?

You can pass in any value to a template - including form fields - using PerchSystem::set_var().

So something along the lines of

PerchSystem::set_var('commentName', perch_members_get('first_name'));
