Hello Badge is a simple 4‐part series of examples. It is the ‘Hello, world!’ of Tally and introduces the core concepts.
How is Tally different?
- It is unobtrusive. Your templates are 100% valid HTML 5.
- It is simple. No confusing, error‐prone mapping code to write.
- It is visual. Design in the browser or your favourite visual editor. Use mock data in your templates.
- It is DRY. Use the same template on server and on client.
