What is a Carbone tag?

Carbone tags are placeholders {d.} within the document template. The carbone engine recognizes tags and replaces with real data when generating reports. These tags are used to bind data from a JSON source to specific locations in the template, enabling the creation of personalized and data-driven documents. The "JSON data" can be a word, a sentence, a number, a date, image, barcode, charts, colors and more!

A Carbone tag is also named "marker" or "placeholder".

Example of Carbone tag


  "firstname": "John",
  "lastname": "Doe"


Hello {d.firstname} {d.lastname} !


Hello John Doe !
