Overview

View the Medium blog for this tutorial here.

This tutorial was created using tortilla, an incredible framework for building tutorials.

Starting with the very first commit, every commit in Chatty represents the next step in the tutorial. Follow the tutorial for a guided walk through the code, or investigate a commit to see exactly what code changed for a given step. Since this is git, you can even download the app at any step in the tutorial -- how cool is that?!
