EV Tags

A client-side HTML syntax that hooks into server-side functionality like magic. 

A growing number of EVML tags hook into server-side objects automatically  performing a range of complex tasks behind the scenes you shouldn't need to worry about. In some cases you can take advantage of our growing JavaScript library to quickly deliver built-in functionality automatically from HTML style markup.

Facilitate multi-lingual content

EVML tags link directly into theme and website language settings. This enables translations of websites to be achieved directly from within each theme template. Again, this is all about ease-of-use for web authors designing themes, but also for website owners managing content in different languages. 

Do more, code less

Many EVML tags pack quite a punch in terms of how much functionality they bring together in one tag. In some cases EVML tags can be nested to achieve some pretty amazing results, but with very simple, familiar and understandable markup. Our theory is that if you work in a familiar and enjoyable environment, you work better and remember more.
